The Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) offers several postdoc and PhD positions linked to the ERC Advanced Grant project X-Chem (XUV/X-ray lasers for ultrafast electronic control in molecules), starting no later than September, 2015.
The successful applicants shall develop a research project on “Theoretical Attosecond Molecular Dynamics” to theoretically investigate the coupled electron and nuclear dynamics induced by attosecond laser pulses and strong electromagnetic fields on small and mid-size molecules. The work will be performed in close collaboration with experimental groups.
