Postdoctoral Research Positions (Experimental)

Postdoctoral Research Associate applications are sought from candidates interested in studies of carrier, spin and phonon dynamics in material systems employing a novel ultrafast laser approach. Using coherent acoustic phonons, it is possible to characterize defect concentrations with nanometer resolution and in some circumstances to locally modify heterostructures far from equilibrium (see Send application letter, resume, and arrange to send three letters of reference to: Professor Norman Tolk, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Vanderbilt University, Nashville Tennessee 37235-1807, or electronically send to
