Are you an experienced researcher in nonlinear research applications and setup development? Would you like to be a key player in the development of nonlinear microscope systems using ultrabroadband few cycle femtosecond lasers for medical imaging and explore and apply novel phenomena at the nanoscale?

INL seeking an expert on nonlinear femtosecond laser based technologies, optical set up development and nonlinear applications.

The candidate shall support the development of novel nonlinear setups and demonstrators, support and co-supervise research applications employing ultrafast sources and pulse shapers. Main fields of nonlinear applications shall range from nonlinear imaging of exotic nanomaterials, bio-samples and live cells to nonlinear fabrication areas, e.g. multi-colour quantitative bioimaging and two photon polymerization using standard femtosecond laser sources as well as latest few cycle ultrabroadband femtosecond laser sources.

Research applications, besides others, include the study of nanoparticle – cell interactions in the context of nanomedicine research.

The selected candidate will be working in the interdisciplinary research team of the Ultrafast Bio- and Nanophotonics group and contribute to the growing collaborations with national and international partners from the academic and private sector.
