POSITION OPENING: Post Doctoral Scholar Howard University, a research 
university in the downtown of Washington D.C. (http://www.howard.edu/), 
seeks a Post Doctoral Scholar in the field of fast chemical dynamics 
under extreme conditions of high pressure and temperature. This is a 
University position, but the prospective recipient will be working at 
the Geophysical Laboratory, Carnegie Institution of Washington using its 
high-pressure facilities. The responsibilities of this position are 
primarily focused on developing and applying new pulsed laser techniques 
for studies of fast chemical kinetics and dynamics in simple molecules 
and energetic materials. Laser heated diamond anvil cell techniques will 
be used in combination with time-resolved spectroscopy and x-ray 
diffraction to monitor chemical reactions at unattainable previously 
range of pressures and temperatures. The preferred start date for this 
position is immediate. Interested parties should send a cover letter, 
resume or curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, and contact 
information for a minimum of three references.

For further information or to submit an application, please contact:

Dr. Alexander Goncharov, Geophysical Laboratory, Carnegie Institution of 
Washington 5251 Broad Branch Road NW, Washington D.C., 20015, Ph: 202 
478 8947, e-mail: agoncharov@carnegiescience.edu

Qualifications include a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Physics, Optics, Materials 
Science or a related field as well as experience in some or all of the 
following areas: fast lasers, diamond anvil cell techniques, optical 
spectroscopy and synchrotron x-ray techniques. A good working knowledge 
of computer programming for physical experiments (python, labview, 
matlab) is essential. Ability to work well as a team member and 
independently is a must; good organizational skills and good verbal and 
written communication skills are also required.
