    Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes cast)

The Division of Synchrotron Radiation Research at the Department of Physics, Lund University, has a broad spectrum of research interests and experimental programs. The molecular physics group is interested in studies of photoinduced processes in molecules and molecular clusters using spectroscopic methods based on photodissociation. The project for the PhD student encompasses carrying out experimental studies on molecules in the gas phase and free molecular clusters using three-dimensional charged-particle imaging spectrometer. Instrumental development is a part of the project as well as refinement of the analysis tools for interpretation of the 3-D momentum images. Teaching at up to the 10% level may be a part of the duties of the successful candidate.

Eligibility / Entry Requirements
Basic entry requirements for PhD studies are: a degree at an advanced level containing at least 240 credits, of which at least 60 are at an advanced level, or corresponding to a similar level.

For special eligibility in Physics, an independent project, equivalent to 30 credits is required, together with courses at an advanced level that provide the relevant background for the planned research. Special eligibility may also be achieved through other equivalent education.

For detailed requirements and the selection criteria, see the general study plan for physics at

Basis of Assessment
Regulations for employment as a postgraduate student can be found in the Swedish Statute Book (SFS 1998:80). Only those admitted to postgraduate studies can be appointed to such a position. When appointing applicants to such a position, first and foremost, their ability to benefit from postgraduate studies must be taken into consideration. In addition to pursuing postgraduate studies, the doctoral student may also perform other duties, including research, teaching and administration, according to the specific regulations.

A strong interest in experimental techniques is a prerequisite for consideration. Technical expertise, experience with experimental work using high-vacuum techniques, proficiency with electronics or imaging detectors will be considered very strong merits. Documented experience in analysis of multicoincident data is a merit. Some proficiency with computer programming and computing is an asset.
