We invite you to apply to our full-time open-rank Research Scientist position available developing ultrafast laser techniques at our Compact X-ray Free-Electron Laser (CXFEL) laboratory at Arizona State University (ASU).

Our CXFEL facility comprises 12,000 sq. ft. of state-of-the-art laboratory space in the new Biodesign C building at the Tempe campus. ASU has embarked on a multi-phase project to develop powerful x-ray beams, beginning with the compact x-ray light source (CXLS) that is now under construction. CXLS uses a compact electron accelerator and high power lasers to produce x-rays via inverse Compton scattering (ICS). Our CXFEL laboratory is equipped with a Yb:KGW femtosecond laser system that provides ultrashort UV pulses for electron injection, and a Yb:YAG thin-disk regenerative amplifier capable of delivering 200 mJ pulses at 1kHz repetition rate for ICS, to produce X-rays tunable between 100eV to 40 keV. The ultrafast x-ray sources will be employed for time-resolved studies of atomic and molecular processes, quantum materials, chemical dynamics, and biological phenomena.


• Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Physics, Optical Sciences, Electrical Engineering or a closely related field

• Expertise in ultrafast laser science and familiarity with x-ray technology

• Excellent verbal, presentation, and technical report writing skills

• Ability to work within multidisciplinary project team
