At Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of Duesseldorf, Germany, Theoretical Laser-Plasma Physics Group
Field(s): computational physics, electromagnetism, laser physics, physics of beams, plasma physics, theoretical physics
Application deadline: Sep 1, 2004
Contact: Prof. Alexander Pukhov
Phone: +49 211 81 13122

You will be developing theory of laser-matter interaction at the highest intensities produced by the modern state-of-the-art lasers. You will be in a close contact with many experimental groups all over the world, who could check your theoretical results in the real experiments. You will be simulating the experiments numerically on the most powerful parallel computers.
Possible scientific topics:
1. High-gradient acceleration of particles using laser plasmas.
2. Novel short-wavelength radiation sources: coherent harmonics, X-rays, (sub-)attosecond pulses.
3. Nuclear physics with lasers.
4. Vacuum polarization with lasers.
Your necessary skills: 1. profound theoretical background in physics; 2. good programming skills in C++.
Formal parameters: you need a Diploma or a Master degree in physics.
Salary: about 35-40 kEuro per year brutto depending on your age and marital status (0.67 BAT-IIa position).
