The successful candidate (m/f) will become a part of an internationally recognized research team. He/she will focus on the research theme (Ph.D. Thesis) “Study of the local surrounding, and incorporation of emission centers in optical materials. Occurrence, structure, and influence of point defects on optical properties”.
Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy will be widely applied to the investigation of the ways of improvement of the nanoscintillator performance, in particular, defects suppression and investigation of the activator ions incorporation in combination with luminescence, and absorption techniques. To gain this goal, very accurate data collection and data processing workflows need to be developed.

Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences
The Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, v. v. i. (FZU) is a public research institution, focusing on basic and applied research in physics. The Institute of Physics is the largest of the institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences with more than 1300 employees, including a considerable number of international workers. The ambition of the Institute of Physics is to push forward the boundaries of knowledge and to conduct first-rate research in the fields of elementary particles, condensed systems, solid particles, optics, plasma physics, and laser physics.
Advanced Optical Nanomaterials and Composites research group (https://www.fzu.cz/en/research/divisions-and-departments/division-3/department-27/group-2712), Prague, Czech Republic is one of the leading European laboratories where advanced electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopies in correlation with luminescence and photovoltaic techniques are applied to study functional optical materials. Within the currently running OP VVV SOLID21 and domestic projects, we invite applications for the position mentioned above.
