The University Research Alliance program on Interaction of Ionizing Radiation with Matter (IIRM) at the University of Michigan is seeking a postdoctoral experimentalist to perform optical spectroscopy and characterization of ultrafast interactions on a broad spectrum of materials with ionizing radiation.

This new program will study processes that offer promise of significantly improving the resolution and lowering the cost of scintillator-like materials. The successful candidate will be expected to lead an independent investigation assisted by graduate and undergraduate students on topics combining ultrafast spectroscopy, exciplex dynamics, optical materials characterization (rare gases, crystals) and particle detection. Candidates should have a PhD in electrical engineering, physics, engineering physics, chemistry or materials science with prior experience on high energy interactions in ionized systems. They should have familiarity with mode-locked laser systems, ultrafast technology, photon-counting, high frequency electronics, electro-optics and computer interfacing.

Start date will be September 2020 or as soon after this date as possible. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled for a one year appointment with possible extension based on merit. Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume and contact information for at least two references via email to Professor Stephen Rand (scr@umich.edu) in Ann Arbor. 

The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. The University of Michigan has a storied legacy of commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). The Michigan Engineering  component of the University’s comprehensive, five-year, DEI strategic plan – along with updates on our programs and resources dedicated to ensuring a welcoming, fair and inclusive environment – can be found at http://www.engin.umich.edu/college/about/diversity.
