UCF Astrochemistry Laboratory

Welcome to the UCF Astrochem Lab – where chemistry, physics, and astrobiology meet. Our group utilizes both experimental and theoretical techniques in an effort to understand the molecular makeup of the universe, the processes that affect that makeup, how those processes eventually led to life as we know it on Earth, and where else in our solar system (and beyond) life could thrive.

The UCF Astrochemistry group is currently looking for a postdoctoral fellow to work on a NASA PICASSO funded project developing a novel ultrafast pump-probe 3D-IR Raman instrument for planetary science. Further details are provided here: https://sciences.ucf.edu/physics/bennett-lab/recruitment/
