Postdoc: Femtosecond generation and detection of ultrahigh-frequency sound waves for the detection of buried nanostructures
About the group
The Advanced Research Center for Nanolithography (ARCNL) focuses on the fundamental physics and chemistry involved in current and future key technologies in nanolithography, primarily for the semiconductor industry. ARCNL is a public-private partnership between the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), the University of Amsterdam (UvA), the VU University Amsterdam (VU) and the semiconductor equipment manufacturer ASML. ARCNL is located at the Science Park Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and is currently building up towards a size of approximately 100 scientists and support staff.
You will be embedded in the Light-Matter Interaction group at ARCNL, which frequently interacts with our industrial partner ASML. The research activities of the Light-Matter Interaction group mainly take place in the general area of “metrology” and cover both fundamental research and real-life applications of that research.
You have a PhD in (applied) physics and experience in the fields of optical physics or laser physics and solid-state physics. Experience with photo-acoustics is not required but advantageous. Good verbal and written communication skills (in English) are required.
You need to meet the requirements for a doctors-degree and must have research experience in a non-Dutch academic environment.
Terms of employment
The position is intended as full-time (40 hours / week, 12 months / year) appointment in the service of the Netherlands Foundation of Scientific Research Institutes (NWO-I) for the duration of two years, with a salary in scale 10 (CAO-OI) and a range of employment benefits. ARCNL assists any new foreign Postdoc with housing and visa applications and compensates their transport costs and furnishing expenses.
