The candidate is supposed to work predominantly on the following topics:
  • Laser induced dielectric breakdown (LIDB) in gases: from laser sparks to plasma filaments
  • Diagnostics of plasmas formed in gases, liquids (i.e., laser cavitation) and heterogeneous systems by focused high-power laser beams
  • Analysis of chemical consequences of LIDB and related phenomena: laboratory simulation of high-energy-density events related to the origins of life
  • Investigating the relationship between physical characteristics and chemical changes in laser-produced plasmas
  • Collaboration with theorists modelling the chemical change in various laser-plasma-chemical systems
  • PhD in physical chemistry, chemical physics, plasma physics, plasma chemistry, astrobiology or related field
  • Experience in plasma diagnostics, laser-plasma interaction and/or plasma chemistry
  • Skills in high-power-laser science and technology represent a plus (but not mandatory)
  • Good knowledge of spoken and written English
Job conditions:
  • The opportunity to participate in unique scientific projects
  • Collaboration with a strongly motivated scientific team
  • Career growth, professional education
  • Competitive and motivating salary
  • 5 week holidays and other employee benefits
Applications containing CV, cover letter, contacts of references, and any other material the candidate considers relevant, should be sent to Dr. Libor Juha, Laser Plasma Department, Institute of Plasma Physics, Czech Academy of Science, Za Slovankou 3, 182 00 Prague 8, Czech Republic; juha@ipp.cas.cz.
