Admin 2014-08-06 944


Max Planck Center for Attosecond Science (MPC-AS)




CASTECH ( http://lsl.postech.ac.kr/ ) led  by Prof. Dong Eon Kim at POSTECH, the Asian Headquarter of MPC-AS (http://mpc-as.mpk.or.kr/sub/Introduction.asp ) is seeking enthusiastic scientists for post-doctoral positions in the area of attosecond / femtosecond science and technology.


Center for Attosecond Science and Technology has been established in close collaboration with Prof F. Krausz, Max Planck Inst. for Quantum Optics (MPQ), to further develop new attosecond source and attosecond spectroscopy and metrology to promote the measurement, control and exploitation of ultrafast phenomena in nature that have never been explored before. The activities of CASTECH have been expanded to Max Planck Center for Attosecond Science (MPC-AS). CASTECH is funded to construct 4 attosecond light facilities, one in each area of atomic physics, molecular science, nano/surface science, imaging, and to run a program for the development of new advanced sources. CASTECH has successfully generated isolated attosecond pulses of 200 as duration since Nov. 2011. Attosecond apparatuses for atomic physics as well as chemical physics have been completed.


MPC-AS is seeking

two(2) post-doctoral (PD) positions to carry out experiments

for the study of ultrafast science in atomic and chemical physics and

one PD position for the development of XUV source using nanostructures.

One PD position for nano photonics(plasmonics)


Salaries are competitive, starting from 36 million KRW ( or 3600 USD) per year.  


The successful candidates are expected to have experiences of femtosecond laser, vacuum technology and XUV radiation.



An applicant is requested to submit     

(1) CV

(2) statement of research achievement in the past and

(3) two letters of recommendation
