PhD position 3 (University of Twente), Vacancy number: TOP-715.018.001-3
Ultrafast spectroscopy studies on the impact of vibronic coupling on long-range exciton transfer
This position will focus on ultrafast spectroscopic characterization of the impact of vibronic coupling on long-range exciton transfer. The exciton dynamics will be studied by femtosecond transient absorption, ultrafast photoluminescence using streak camera detection and 2D electronic spectroscopy. The role of specific vibrational modes in the occurrence of long-range exciton transfer and the transport mechanism will be investigated by photoexcitation with sequences of femtosecond pulses with a time spacing synchronized with the oscillation time of the targeted vibrational motion, enabling to modulate the oscillation amplitude. The PhD student will strongly interact with the PhD students in Groningen and Leiden.
- Master’s degree in Physical Chemistry, (Bio)Physics or Chemistry
- Strong experimental and theoretical skills
- Excellent analytical and conceptual ability
- Good to excellent proficiency in English
- Ability to work independently in a multidisciplinary environment
- Some experience with preparation and handling of biological samples is required
- Experience with Optical spectroscopy is a plus
- The PhD research needs to start before May 2019
Please upload your application including an application/motivation letter, emphasizing your specific interest and motivation to apply for this position, a detailed CV, contact details of at least 2 referees, an academic transcript of B.Sc. and M.Sc. education and a TOEFL or IELTS score to verify sufficient mastering of the English language by using the application button below. An interview will be part of the selection procedure and will take place in week 4 and/or 5.
Terms and conditions
Successful candidates will be offered a full-time 1-year term position for initially one year. After a positive evaluation of the progress of the thesis, personal capabilities and compatibility the appointment will be extended by a further 3 years. The salary ranges from € 2.325,- to € 2.972,- gross per month (pay scale P in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities).
Dutch Universities offer an attractive benefits package with additional holiday (8%) and end-of-year bonuses (8.3%), training and career development and sabbatical leave. Our individual choices model gives you some freedom to assemble your own set of terms and conditions. Candidates from outside The Netherlands may be eligible for a substantial tax break.
The PhD students are expected to contribute to teaching (ca. 10 % of the time) and are embedded in the Leiden University Graduate School of Science (www.graduateschools.leidenuniv.nl), the Groningen Graduate School of Science and Engineering (https://www.rug.nl/research/gradschool-science-and-engineering/) or the Twente Graduate School (https://www.utwente.nl/en/education/post-graduate/tgs/). The graduate schools offer PhD training courses at three levels: professional courses, skills training and personal effectiveness. In addition, advanced courses to deepen scientific knowledge are offered by the research schools. You and your supervisors will make up a plan for additional suitable education and supervision.
The universities are strongly committed to diversity within their community and especially welcome applications from members of underrepresented groups. We encourage a high degree of responsibility and independence, but also stimulate interaction and discussion with colleagues.
