PhD position on Cold Molecules in Groningen, The Netherlands

We are looking for a talented PhD student to join us on a new experimental
project at the Kernfysisch Versneller Instituut (KVI) in Groningen, The
Netherlands. Our new research group plans to investigate fundamental
symmetries and interactions through the study of ‘cold molecules’.

At the KVI we use precision techniques to study (radioactive) atoms and
ions, involving atomic and nuclear physics with theoretical support. A new
research activity that has very recently been started is the study of cold
neutral molecules. Cold molecules are molecules that we have complete
control over; not only their velocity, but also their internal state is very
well defined. As the ideal experiment one can think of a high-resolution
spectroscopic measurement on a sample of ultracold trapped molecules which
are all in the same quantum state. In this project we will construct the
required apparatus to achieve this goal, and aim towards a measurement of a
tiny predicted (yet until now unobserved) effect of parity violation in
molecules. For this application the cold molecule can be seen as a small
laboratory that is used as a magnifying glass to show the subtle effects of
the weak interaction.

PhD position on joint project of University of Amsterdam and FOM Institute Rijnhuizen

Presently, a PhD position is open on a joint project between the Molecular
Photonics group of Prof. W.J. Buma at the University of Amsterdam and the
Molecular Dynamics group of Dr. J. Oomens at the FOM Institute Rijnhuizen.
The project is concerned with the development of new functional systems
that are responsive to exposure to a temperature above a threshold value
and/or exposure to UV light. One of the approaches employed is based on
discotic liquid crystals. The spectroscopic properties of the employed
molecular systems have been studied to some extent in solution, liquid, and
solid state, but the excited and ionic state, properties under isolated
conditions, and – in particular how they change upon aggregation – are
largely unknown.
