POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW (F/M) ON ID13 IN THE X-RAY NANOPROBE GROUP

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.

ID13 offers the unique opportunity to combine cutting-the-edge scanning micro-/nano-beam diffraction/scattering methods with sub-millisecond time resolution using highly efficient pixel array detectors. With the considerable gain in performance due to the recently upgraded X-ray source (ESRF EBS), it is ideally suited for in-vivo/operando experiments and 3D techniques (SAXS/WAXS tensor tomography). The coherence of X-ray nano-beams can also be exploited for ptychography and similar applications. The current research programme is covering a wide range of materials such as bio-materials, biological cells, polymers, nano-particles, materials for sustainable energy generation and storage, or cultural heritage as well. In particular, you will join in the effort of the group to upgrade the performance of the experimental end-stations and to implement new experimental techniques. You will be encouraged to develop your own research projects, which should exploit and further develop the beamline’s distinctive capabilities. A description of the project will be highly appreciated at the submission of the application.

EXPECTED PROFILE

  • You must hold a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in physics, biology, chemistry or a related subject obtained less than three years ago
  • A strong background in X-ray analysis (XRD.SAXS-WAXS, XRF, …) is desirable
  • Previous experience on a synchrotron facility is an asset
  • You should have basic knowledge of data analysis related programming e.g. with Python or MATLAB
  • Good communication skills and proficiency in English are also essential to integrate into a multidisciplinary and international research team.

WORKING CONDITIONS

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