Position: Early Stage Researcher (PhD) in the framework of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Innovative Training Networks (ITN) H2020-MSCA-ITN-2014 MEDEA 641789


Institution: Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg, Germany

Duration: four years (from 01.01.2017)

Synthetic description of the project:

The project is focused on experiments to be performed at Free Electron Lasers (FELs), and, in particular at the FEL FERMI, that delivers tunable XUV pulses with a bandwidth between 30 and 90 meV. Coherent control schemes in the XUV spectral range exploiting the unique properties of the FEL FERMI will be investigated. In particular, the ESR will investigate how the combination of multi-color coherent XUV radiation can be used to control the photoionization process and electronic dynamics in inner valence shells of atoms and molecules. Finally, she/he will also investigate novel approaches for the generation of attosecond pulse trains using XUV FELs.

The work will be conducted in close collaboration with the atomic/molecular/ and optical physics group of the Elettra Sincrotrone led by Dr. Kevin Prince and Dr. Carlo Callegari.

The group of Fernando Martin in Madrid (Spain) offers the possibility to develop a research project on Theoretical Attosecond Electron Dynamics, oriented to obtain a PhD diploma, to theoretically investigate the coupled electron and nuclear dynamics induced by attosecond laser pulses and strong electromagnetic fields on small and mid-size molecules, as well as in solids.banner-inphinit-v2-animado

The position shall be funded by the doctoral fellowship programme INPhINIT, which is devoted to attract international Early-Stage Researchers (ESR) to top Spanish research centres. INPhINIT is promoted by the “la Caixa” Foundation and relies on the European Commission’s support through the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions – COFUND programme.

The fellowship shall cover a 3-year doctoral employment contract with good remuneration conditions (gross salary 26.000 € per year) in comparison with the standard of living in Spain, and a top up contribution for training and networking activities. Researchers shall complement their training with a variety of transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary activities.
In addition, phd candidates may opt to a price amounting to 7.500 € if they got the diploma earlier than 6 months after the finalization of the contract.
