Postdoctoral position in Laser Spectroscopy (Nova Scotia, Canada)

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the department of Physics at St Francis Xavier University to study the spectral signature of molecular components by mid-IR laser spectroscopy and to develop laser spectroscopy instrumentation for chemical sensing. Applications of this research cover a broad range of sectors such as environmental monitoring, medical diagnostics, industrial process control, security, etc.

•       Ph.D. in Physics, Engineering, Physical Chemistry or a closely related field.
•       Experience in experimental laser spectroscopy, vacuum techniques, gas handling equipment, data acquisition and processing.
•       Highly motivated individual who can plan and perform experiments in an independent manner with minimal supervision. Creativity is expected in solving experimental difficulties.
•       Experience with cavity-ring down, integrated cavity output, cavity-enhanced absorption and/or whispering gallery mode spectroscopy techniques is preferred but not mandatory.
•       Publications in international peer-reviewed journals

St Francis Xavier is a primary undergraduate institution ranked among the best universities in Canada. The university delivers top-notch academics and exceptional hands-on research experiences ( The department of Physics is a small but vibrant department with a strong focus on research.

Dear Prof. Karine Le Bris

I would like to apply for this post. I am about to submit my Ph.D thesis in coming next three months. My Ph.D thesis titled is Synthesis of Lead free Ferroelectric materials and their characterisation. I have 6 Years teaching experience in a College of University of Delhi, Delhi, India. I have two years of Research in Solid State Physics Laboratory, Defence Research Development organisation, Ministry of Defence at Delhi, India. I have also six months experience on Synthesis of ZnO and SBN thin films by Pulsed Laser Deposition at NIE, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. I am would like to ask that, Can I apply for this post.


Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
