Position available!

We are looking for highly-motivated candidates (M.S., Ph.D., and M.S.-Ph.D. integrated program).

학부생, 대학원생 (석사, 박사, 또는 석-박 통합과정) 및 연구원을 모집합니다. 대학원생과 연구원은 병역특례에 지원가능 하며, 월급여는 경력과 연구 기여도에 따라 조정 가능합니다 (박사과정: 세전 120~300만원, 박사후 연구원: 세전 350~700만원). 관심있는 지원자는 조범석 교수(zhao at unist.ac.kr)에게 연락 바랍니다. 

Our group research focuses on controlling molecular rotations and translations. For molecular motion control, we study their interaction with various fields or surfaces and photo-dissociation. Particularly, we exploit the state-dependent force imparted by the molecule-field interaction to spatially separate stereoisomers and their quantum states. Besides, in collaboration with the Fritz Haber Institute in Berlin, grazing incidence atom optics is investigated.
