POST-DOCTORAL FELLOW (F/M) ON ID10 IN THE COMPLEX SYSTEMS AND BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES GROUP

7926


7927

CONTEXT & JOB DESCRIPTION

You will participate in the operation of the beamline, ongoing in-house research programmes, provide support to external users as local contact, and develop your own research programme. Together with the beamline scientists, you will be required to participate in the development of data analysis methods and sample environments specific to the beamline.

The ID10 surface scattering station is dedicated to studies of hard and soft condensed matter surfaces and interfaces using X-ray reflectivity (XRR), grazing incidence WAXS and SAXS, and auxiliary methods like X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES). The main peculiarity of the station is the double crystal deflector (DCD) for studies on liquid surfaces including buried interfaces. Beamline is equipped with a variety of sample environments including Langmuir trough and a reactor for chemical vapor deposition (CVD) growth of 2D materilas on liquid metal catalysts (LMCat).  Current in-house research topics include studies of Langmuir films mimicking cell membranes, assemble of nanoparticles at liquid interfaces and catalysis (CVD growth of graphene, hNB, GaN, AlN and Fischer-Tropsch synthesis).

Further information may be obtained from Dr. Oleg Konovalov (konovalov@esrf.fr).

 

EXPECTED PROFILE

  • Ph.D. in Physics, Chemistry or a closely related subject obtained less than 3 years ago.
  • Strong aptitude for instrumentation and data analysis
  • Knowledge of research topics relevant to solid-state physics, surface science, liquid surfaces 
  • Experience in applying scattering techniques (X-ray or neutron scattering) to study soft matter or related systems. Basic knowledge of scattering data modelling is essential.
  • Data analysis skills and programming using Python or MATLAB 
  • Ability to interact with multi-disciplinary staff and facility users
  • Proficiency in English (working language at the ESRF)

WORKING CONDITIONS

Contract of 18 months, renewable for a further 6 or 18-month period.
