Postdoctoral Research Fellow – High Energy Pulsed Fibre Lasers
Location: Highfield Campus
Salary: £27,578 to £33,884
Contract: Full Time Fixed Term
Closing Date: Tuesday 07 August 2012
Applicants are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in the area of pulsed high power optical fibre lasers. The project will involve the development of advanced pulsed ytterbium fibre master oscillator power amplifier systems and associated frequency conversion techniques for use in novel photoacoustic medical imaging systems.
The post is sponsored by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) as part of an exciting interdisciplinary collaborative project involving researchers at the Medical Imaging Department at University College London.
The project aims to set new records in terms of pulsed fiber laser performance, open new modalities in photoacoustic imaging, and to provide the practical sources required to allow transition of the technique from the laboratory to clinical practice.
Applicants must have a strong background in lasers and optics with research experience in fibre lasers and/or amplifiers and excellent experimental skills. The applicants will be expected to work as part of a cohesive team and to interact with project partners. A PhD in Physics/Engineering or equivalent with relevant experience at post-graduate/postdoctoral in fibre lasers and/or amplifiers is essential. A hands-on approach is necessary along with a keen interest in developing new physical ideas from proof-of-principle to implementation.
Current salaries are in the range £27,578 to £33,884 pa on Level 4 of the Education, Research and Enterprise scale. The appointment is initially for a 2-year period with potential for further extension.
The closing date for this post is 7th August 2012.
