2024-25: Optical and Laser Science Postdoc Postings (moderated by the Utrafast Optical Phenomena Technical Group)

All University, National Labs, and research institute postings are welcome. Please include a link to the job posting. Permanent faculty job rumors should be posted at Faculty Rumor Mill.

Post your postdoctoral openings here. Please consider updating the positions! Those without fixed closing dates may be removed after 6 months. The page is managed by volunteers from the Ultrafast Optical Phenomena Technical Group of OPTICA (formerly the Optical Society, OSA) Ultrafast Optical Phenomena Technical Group. It is not directly run by or endorsed by Optica.

How to Edit/Add job rumors: simply click the user-friendly “Edit” button at the bottom of the table. No registration is needed (warning anyone can modify them). The Optica Ultrafast Group will periodically delete old (>6 mo) postings. Specifying a deadline helps us remove old profiles.

This Rumor Mill is inspired by the CMO/AMO Physics Rumor Mill, but is focused on posting seeking applicants with interdisciplinary backgrounds common to the laser optical sciences. It is a place to search and post institutional-based jobs for applicants who are talented with (esp. ultrafast) optics and laser sciences. Please help to keep this list updated with all 2022-23 postdoctoral positions that are relevant to:

  Ultrafast phenomena (broadly defined)
  Ultrafast laser science
  Optical Spectroscopy
  Applied Physics in optics 
  Optical CM and AMO experiment and theory,
  Optical Materials science,
  Optical Biophysics and laser microscopy
  Chemical Physics
   And other fields.
