The Harel Lab at Michigan State University is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral researchers in the broad area of ultrafast spectroscopy and optical microscopy. The researcher will develop novel, cutting-edge methodologies to tackle contemporary problems in physical chemistry and biophysics. A deep theoretical understanding of quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and nonlinear optics is required. Strong oral and written communication is also required. Skills such as technical computing (Matlab, Python), hardware design (CAD, LabView), machining, basic electronics, machine learning, data science, cavity QED, interferometry, nano- and micro-fabrication, fiber optics, laser aligning and optical design are highly desired.
Doctorate -Chemistry or Physics

Michigan State University has been advancing the common good with uncommon will for more than 160 years. One of the top research universities in the world, MSU pushes the boundaries of discovery and forges enduring partnerships to solve the most pressing global challenges while providing life-changing opportunities to a diverse and inclusive academic community through more than 200 programs of study in 17 degree-granting colleges.
Spartans work every day to advance the common good in uncommon ways.Together, we tackle some of the world?s toughest problems to find solutions that make life better?from alternative energy to better food safety to breakthrough medical and environmental applications achieved through rare isotope research.We teach. We explore and we discover. We collaborate and lead. We innovate, inspire, and empower. We achieve our potential and create circumstances that help our students and others achieve theirs.We're good at it, and we've been at it for more than 150 years.The nation?s pioneer land-grant university, MSU began as a bold experiment that democratized higher education and helped bring science and innovation into everyday life. The revolutionary concept became a model for the nation.Today, MSU is one of the top research universities in the world?on one of the biggest, greenest campuses in the nation. Home to nationally ranked and recognized academic, residential college, and service-learning programs, we?re a diverse community of dedicated students and scholars, athletes and artists, scientists and leaders.In ways both practical and profound, we work to create a stronger, more sustainable, and more hopeful future for all.
