Our vision of advancing ultrafast metrology and its applications offers job opportunities in laser development, basic research on extremely fast processes in condensed matter, highly accurate and sensitive spectroscopy of biological samples, and electric-field molecular fingerprinting of clinical samples as well as in technical support. To learn more about our grand goals, please watch the video on the “our vision” tab. If they have aroused your interest, please feel free to upload your application as advised below. Whilst we are always open for unsolicited applications, this page displays some specific job openings in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (LAP), Center for Advanced Laser Applications (CALA), and Center for Molecular Fingerprinting (CMF).

Our students and postdocs benefit from the access to a world-class infrastructure, a substantial amount of know-how present in our very diverse group, as well as from various carrier-development opportunities offered by the Max Planck Society and the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. In return, we expect our new colleagues to be willing to take on ambitious projects, accepting the risks that are unavoidable in research at the forefront of basic research.

  • Broadband infrared diagnostics
    B.Sc. // a laser-based diagnostics of bacterial and viral pneumonia from human blood samples
    The group of Broadband Infrared Diagnostics (BIRD group), at the Chair of Experimental Physics at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, is a unique collaborative venture involving laser specialists, molecular life scientists, mathematicians and clinicians, devoted to the use of state-of-the-art laser-based technologies for health monitoring and disease diagnostics1. The goal is to probe the feasibility and efficacy of newly developing infrared laser spectroscopy for the detection of cancer and other diseases (www.attoworld.de/bird; www.lasers4life.de). Our group is based at the Research Center in Garching (Forschungszentrum Garching, Section Physics of LMU, Am Coulombwall 1, 85748 Garching), which is easily accessible by public transport. more
