Job Details

The ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) Project is an integral part of the European Union plan to build the next generation of large research facilities. ELI-Beamlines was opened in 2015 as a cutting edge laser facility and currently is starting to offer open access beamtime to users. ELI-Beamlines is delivering ultrashort, ultra-intense laser pulses lasting typically a few femtoseconds (12-150 fs) with peak powers ranging from 5 TW up to 10 PW. It will make available time synchronized laser beams over wide range intensities for wide range of interdisciplinary applications in physics, medicine, biology, material science etc. The high laser electric field intensities of the laser pulse is also used for generating secondary sources of e- and p+. ELI Beamlines is a part of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, and it was open in 2015. 

The Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences is a holder of the HR Excellence in Research Award. It is awarded by the European Commission to institutions which put significant effort into improving their human resources strategy and ensuring professional and ethical working conditions.

The research group RP5 (Laser-plasma interaction in the widest sense) is expanding and recruiting an experimental physicist in relevant fields for implementation, commissioning, operation and further development of the P3 (Plasma Physics Platform) infrastructure. In our team we therefore have the following positions available for experimental high-power laser-matter interaction: Senior & Junior Scientist, Experimental HED Physics (IV-52).

The candidate is supposed to work predominantly on the following topics

  • Design, development, installation, and commissioning of diagnostic systems and other technological infrastructure elements related to P3.
  • Develop research activities in either high-energy or high-intensity laser-matter interaction.
  • Participation in the commissioning and user operation phase.
  • The candidate has sufficient flexibility to work on other urgent tasks related to the operation of the P3 infrastructure.

Requirements

  • PhD in physics or closely related field.
  • Past experience in laser-plasma interaction (technology and/or experiment) is a plus.
  • Good track record in publications.
  • Experience in optical engineering aspects is an advantage.
  • Good knowledge of spoken and written English is necessary.
  • Ability to take initiative and perform tasks independently.

We offer

  • The opportunity to participate in this unique scientific project.
  • Competitive and motivating salary.
  • Flexible working hours.
  • Nice working environment.
  • Career growth.
  • Lunch vouchers, pension contribution and 5 unjustified sick days.
  • Support of leisure time activities.

Applications, containing CV, cover letter, contacts of references, and any other material the candidate considers relevant, should be sent to Mrs. Jana Ženíšková, HR specialist (jana.zeniskova@eli-beams.eu, +420 - 601560322).

Company

ELI Beamlines profile imageELI Beamlines is part of the European ELI laser centre, the world’s first international laser facility. ELI Beamlines is open to an international and interdisciplinary user community from academia and industry. Mandated by the international scientific laser community and implemented in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania, ELI drives international laser research and laser-based applications to new frontiers, and fulfils important missions for regional socio-economic development.

About us
The main mission of ELI Beamlines is to provide a user-oriented infrastructure for performing revolutionary scientific experiments across many different disciplines. It combines advanced synchronized ultra-intense short-pulse lasers with secondary sources of particles and X-rays.

The ELI Beamlines facility provides research opportunities at a number of world-class secondary sources, each one driven by ultra-intense lasers. These secondary sources, partially based on entirely new concepts, produce pulses of radiation and particles of the highest intensity and beam quality, including electromagnetic radiation over a broad spectral range and charged particles such as electrons, protons and ions. These will enable a wealth of novel applications.

Since its very beginning, ELI Beamlines has been closely connected with various scientific institutions around the world.

This scientific exchange has risen since ELI started to work as a user facility. And beyond its scientific co-operation, ELI Beamlines will promote aggressive technology transfer.

Why work for us
ELI Beamlines brings together people from all over the world. If you want to participate in the largest laser research project in the world, apply through the offer of employment at www.eli-beams.eu. We are interested in people of various professions and specializations. We can offer interesting and challenging work, dedicated training, plus the chance to work with smart people in a pleasant working environment.

The future is in laser technologies. Are you interested? Join us!
