Research Fellow Positions at Center for Relativistic Laser Science, IBS
Center for Relativistic Laser Science (CoReLS) of Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in Korea invites applicants with extraordinary talents for two research fellow positions. CoReLS was established to investigate novel physical phenomena in strong field physics with its PW lasers. CoReLS explores innovative physics in ultrahigh intensity laser-matter interactions, especially laser-driven electron and ion acceleration, laboratory astrophysics and strong field QED. CoReLS invites applicants for research fellow positions in the following areas:
1) Experimental laser-plasma physics
CoReLS has performed radiation pressure proton acceleration and laser wakefield electron acceleration, and has pursued strong field QED experiments, such as nonlinear Compton scattering and Breit-Wheeler pair production, and laboratory astrophysics using its 4 petawatt laser. The research responsibility includes executing advanced research in these areas with the PW laser. Applicant should have experience in one or more of the following research areas: laser plasma physics, laser-driven proton/ion/electron acceleration, and laboratory astrophysics.
2) High power laser optics
The laser group at CoReLS has developed and operated ultrahigh intensity 4 PW laser and 150 TW laser. The laser performance has been continuously upgraded and advanced laser techniques have been actively developed so as to provide unprecedented experimental conditions for users. The responsibility includes developing and executing advanced technologies of ultrahigh intensity lasers. Applicant should have experience in one or more of the following research areas: OPCPA, ultrafast laser, multi-pass amplifier, adaptive optics, and geometric optics, and nonlinear optics.
Prospective candidates are expected to have Ph.D. in laser-produced plasma, laboratory astrophysics, ultrashort high-power laser, or equivalent. Applicants with experience in ultrahigh intensity laser, superintense laser-matter interaction, or laser-driven particle acceleration are very much encouraged to apply. More information on CoReLS facility and research program is shown in the attached brochure.
Further inquiry can be made by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Applicants may send resume (resume including current research activity), publication list, research proposal (A4: 1~2 pages) and names of three references by e-mail to email@example.com by December 02, 2019*.
