Diocles Laser Laboratory
We currently have open opportunities at all levels: undergraduate, graduate, postdoctoral and laser optical engineer at our new laser facility in many forefront areas of optics, including:
- relativistic nonlinear optics,
- high-energy density physics,
- ultrafast science,
- novel medical diagnostics and therapies.
Additionally, the Physics Department at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (http://physics.unl.edu) has other active groups in Experimental and Theoretical Atomic, Optical, Molecular and Plasma (AMOP) Physics. Each year, the Department typically attracts about 20 postdoctoral researchers and visiting faculty from various parts of the world. It also has open faculty positions. The size of the Department and the attitude of the faculty encourage extensive interactions with our graduate students. The electronic and instrument shops are staffed with seven full-time professionals. The Department is well-supported with federal and other research grants and contracts which assure that our graduate students have the use of state-of-the-art research equipment and access to good computational services. At present, our faculty brings in over $5.5 million in research grants. As a result, many of our students receive full or partial support in the form of research assistantships and are supported in their travel to national and international meetings.
If this sounds interesting, we encourage you to obtain more information about our Department at http://physics.unl.edu, and do not hesitate to personally contact us, or another Physics faculty member whose interests are closest to your own. We look forward to hearing from you!
