Faculty of Engineering, Dept. of Physics, Div. of Atomic Physics
Lund University was founded in 1666. Today, the University is ranked as one of the world`s top 100 and is Sweden`s most international higher education institution. The University has 47 700 students and 7 500 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.
LTH forms the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, with approximately 9 000 students. The research carried out at LTH is of a high international standard and we are continuously developing our teaching methods and adapting our courses to current needs.
The Department of Physics is with a staff of about 350 scientists and educators one of the largest departments within Lund University. There are seven research divisions and a number of research centra within the department. The research activities at the department cover a broad spectrum of modern physics. www.fysik.lu.se/english.
The Division of Atomic Physics at Lund University is part of the Lund Laser Centre (LLC), the largest unit in the Nordic countries within the field of lasers and optics and a European Large-Scale Infrastructure. A spearhead of the LLC is the Lund High-Power Laser Facility, which presently includes three state-of-the-art 800-nm femtosecond laser systems:
- A high-power, 40 TW, 10 Hz laser, used for high intensity physics and attosecond nonlinear optics;
- A phase-stabilized, tunable, 20 fs, 1 kHz, 5 mJ laser system used for attosecond science, equipped with an optical parametric amplifier;
- A phase stabilized, 7 fs, 200 kHz, 20 mJ system based upon optical parametric chirped pulse amplification, used for applications requiring ultrashort pulses at high-repetition rate, e.g. surface science.
It is also planned to develop new research activities, based upon optical parametric amplification in the mid-IR region. Presently, one research engineer assures the maintenance and upgrade of the largest laser system, while the other systems are being operated and maintained mainly by PhD students and postdocs.
Together with the present research engineer with whom he/she will be expected to form a “laser service team”, the new research engineer will have the responsibility of the maintenance, safe operation, purchase of equipment, and continuous upgrade of the laser systems at the Lund High-Power Laser Facility. This may include implementation and development of temporal/spatial diagnostics, carrier-envelope phase stabilization, control/automation of optical devices and equipment, and, in general, research and development in advanced laser setups. The researcher engineer is expected to help and train PhD students and postdocs working with optics and lasers at the High Power Laser Facility, as well as users during national/European experimental campaigns. The appointment may include partial supervision of master and PhD students.
A condition for the employment is expertise in laser physics and ultrafast optics as well as experience with femtosecond lasers. A requirement is at least a Master degree in Physics, with Optics specialty, or in Photonics and at least five year experience with amplified femtosecond laser systems. A PhD degree in Physics, Optics or Electrical Engineering is a merit. Experience in ray tracing, mechanical design, vacuum techniques, control/automation software and/or electronics is a merit. Good knowledge in written and spoken English is a requirement. The research engineer is expected to be able to work in a team as well as independently and to carry out several projects in parallel. In his/her application, the applicant should describe his/her expertise, if any, in laser development, pulse diagnostics, few-cycle pulses, optical parametric amplification, etc.
Lund University promotes an equal opportunities code. We encourage both men and women to apply for this position.
