Postdoc positions open in Prof. Edoardo Baldini’s group ( at UT Austin

We are looking for highly motivated postdoctoral researchers to join Prof. Edoardo Baldini’s team at UT Austin. The researchers will work on the implementation of a time-resolved momentum microscope to visualize the ground- and excited-state electronic structure of atomically thin quantum materials. The momentum microscope at UT Austin (SPECS GmbH, KREIOS-150 MM) is a next-generation photoemission microscope that can perform real- and momentum-space imaging with high energy resolution. With this instrument, we aim to uncover new quantum states in the two-dimensional limit and achieve their Floquet engineering. The project will take place in a state-of-the-art laser laboratory that features a clean-room-like environment, high vibrational stability (VC-F), and high temperature/humidity control (± 0.3°C / ± 5%). The researchers will have the opportunity to collaborate with a highly trained team and engage in secondary projects such as nonlinear terahertz spectroscopy, second harmonic generation microscopy, and magneto-optical microscopy.


Ph.D. in physics, chemistry, materials science, or related areas. We are currently seeking highly talented researchers with a strong experimental background in one or more of the following areas:
  • ultrahigh vacuum technology
  • photoemission science (e.g., laser-ARPES, synchrotron-ARPES, PEEM)
  • ultrafast laser spectroscopy


Previous experience in quantum materials is not required but is considered a plus.
