PDRA position: Coherent control of photochemistry

A vacancy exists for a short-term postdoctoral position in the Department 
of Chemistry at University College London. The post is funded by the EPSRC 
(UK Engineering and Physics Sciences Research Council). Candidates may be 
of any nationality, but must have a strong background in experimental 
physical chemistry or physics. Experience with either photoelectron 
imaging or ultrafast lasers is essential, and experience with pulse 
shaping and diagnostics would be an advantage. 

The starting salary is 25,889 pa on the UCL Grade 7 scale (which will be 
25,889 to 31,840) plus a London Allowance of 2,497. The post is 
available from 1 March 2007 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Progression through the salary scale is incremental. Cost of living pay 
awards are negotiated nationally and are usually effective from 1st August 
each year.

Project description

During the last decade it has become possible to use femtosecond lasers to 
control photochemical reactions. The most successful approach has been to 
shape the femtosecond laser pulse by changing the relative phases between 
the various wavelengths supported within its broad bandwidth. This has the 
effect of changing the quantum interferences between the various 
components of the molecular wave packet launched onto an electronically 
excited potential energy surface. By combining this phase-control with a 
learning algorithm that receives feedback from the experiment, it is 
possible to optimise the phases of the laser field to steer the 
photochemical reaction along a specific pathway. This project aims to 
unravel the mechanisms of coherent control. It is a collaboration between 
three groups with expertise in the experimental applications of ultrafast 
lasers to coherent control (Helen Fielding, University College London) and 
quantum chemistry calculations of photochemical reactions (Mike Robb/Mike 
Bearpark, Imperial College London and Graham Worth, Birmingham). 

A short vacancy of up to approximately 10 months has arisen in the final 
year of this project. The equipment is built and requires a postdoc to 
work with PhD students to run the experiments and interpret the results. 

To apply:

Please send a copy of your CV with the names of two referees and the 
following forms, completed, to Professor Helen Fielding.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 21st February 2007.
