Center for Molecular Fingerprinting (CMF,  www.mukkozpont.hu ) is developing cutting-edge femtosecond laser technologies to advance electric-field molecular fingerprinting techniques based on field-resolved infrared spectroscopy. The laser spectrometers developed at CMF will be utilized in large scale clinical studies to target disease detection (https://www.lasers4life.de/). Planned high-throughput measurement operations will encompass several tens of thousands of human samples per year being measured by several laser spectrometers, operated in parallel within the CMF laboratories. The research is performed in close collaboration with the attoworld laboratories led by Prof. Krausz at the Ludwig Maximillian University of Munich (LMU) and the Max-Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ) (https://www.attoworld.de/). The aim of the CMF operations is to apply next-generation field-resolved spectrometers based on bright, coherent, broadband mid-Infrared sources for the analysis of human blood samples to non-invasively detect disease and monitor health.


The successful candidate will work, together with laser scientists, life scientists and technicians from CMF, MPQ and LMU at the CMF laboratories at Szeged and Budapest. The candidate will be performing field-resolved infrared measurements and help maintain the laser systems. During the initial phase of employment, the successful candidate will be trained on the existing laser systems within the attoworld laboratories at LMU Munich, in preparation for the technology transfer to CMF in Hungary. Drawing on this training, the successful candidate will be helping set up and manage a laser laboratory in Szeged with a couple of field-resolved spectrometers.

In perspective, there is a unique possibility to help shape the CMF projects and build up of the CMF laboratories, with the possibility of professional development as well as contribution to the latest scientific developments.
