Postdoctoral Stipend Position in Theoretical Modelling of Laser-plasma Interaction in Plasma Waveguides

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral scholar position in material sciences to join Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. The funds for this fellowship are available for two years. All candidates regardless of citizenship are eligible to apply before January 19, 2019.

Department of Physics at Chalmers – home of the Graphene Flagship

Stimulated by major needs and challenges in science and a sustainable society, the ambition of the department of Physics is to foster a creative environment for academic research, learning and outreach. We provide a competitive advantage by linking our top-level international and interdisciplinary academic performance in the areas of material science, nanotechnology and energy research with world-leading industrial R&D&I projects. We address a wide array of experimental, computational, methodological and theoretical challenges, from fundamental physics research, through the development of new materials such as graphene to direct industrial projects generating new inventions. We have a strong learning commitment on all levels from undergraduate to PhD studies where physics meet engineering. We are situated in a stimulating and creative environment with newly renovated facilities.

The department is the major part of Gothenburg Physics Centre - a collaboration between five departments at Chalmers and Gothenburg University.

Information about the project

The Department of Physics seeks a highly motivated and talented individual to join the Plasma Theory group at the Division of Subatomic and Plasma Physics and work on theoretical modelling of laser-plasma interaction in plasma waveguides. The aim of this project is to investigate the novel aspects of the ultra-intense laser (acting as waveguide modes) interacting with plasmas and to explore the potential applications in particle acceleration and radiation generation.

Major responsibilities

The postdoctoral project will be focused on theoretical modelling of laser waveguide modes interacting with plasmas, mainly via numerical simulations and comparisons with experimental observations.

Full-time Postdoc position funded by a scholarship. The position is limited until 2021-03-15.


The applicant should have a PhD in physics. Previous experience in laser-plasma physics is considered a strong advantage. The work includes both theoretical analysis and numerical simulations. The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. It is funded by a scholarship available to non-Swedish citizens with a PhD from a non-Swedish university, received not more than two years before the starting date of the scholarship.

Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the dynamic city ofGothenburg.
