Job description

We have an excellent opportunity for a Post-doctoral Researcher to join Dr Gianluca Sarri on an EPSRC-funded program (grant No: EP/V049186/1) to carry out research work in high-field quantum electro-dynamics in the field of an intense laser, towards the first studies of quantum effects in the evolution and dynamics of high-density plasmas.

You will join a vibrant network of national and international collaborators working towards the design, execution, and analysis of the first experimental campaigns in high-field quantum electrodynamics using both in-house and international large-scale laser facilities and particle accelerators, including the Central Laser Facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and the Stanford Linear Accelerator (SLAC).

This is a fixed term post for 24 months, starting on or about 1 September 2021 in the first instance.

Queen’s University Belfast is recognised as one of the most diverse organisations in Northern Ireland. We are committed to equality of opportunity, fair participation and welcomes applications from all.
