The Research Assistant Professor will work with Dr. Donald Umstadter, Director of the UNL Extreme Light Laboratory, and the laboratory's involvement in the established DOE LaserNetUS consortium of designated user facilities. These unique facilities are pioneering the science, technology, and applications of extreme light. The science involves highly relativistic laser-matter interactions at the highest achievable light intensity levels. The technology entails petawatt-power and femtosecond-duration lasers. The applications include compact laser-driven accelerators and x-ray light sources, which are leading to advances in radiology and ultrafast phenomena.
The Research Assistant Professor will be responsible for managing scientific research projects in accordance with funded awards and contracts. This includes but is not limited to leading research planning, project management on one or more projects, research team meetings; writing progress reports; writing manuscripts for publication; mentoring and managing students and post-docs; attending conference and sponsor meetings; and identifying and acquiring future funding. Additional responsibilities include coordinating with both internal and external multi-disciplinary research at the Extreme Light Laboratory.
