Salary level: EGR. 13 TV-L
Start date: as soon as possible, fixed until 30.06.2025 (This is a fixed-term contract in accordance with Section 2 of the academic fixed-term labor contract act [Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz, WissZeitVG]).
Application deadline: 2024-03-19
Scope of work: full-time position suitable for part-time
Duties include academic services in the project named above. Research associates may also pursue independent research and further academic qualifications.
The post-doctoral researcher at Universität Hamburg will be a connecting link between chemically (UHH) and methodologically (DESY, KTH) driven efforts to develop Stereoscopic X-Ray Vision to Investigate Nanoparticles. The postdoc will focus on implementing and testing the newly developed experimental in-situ environment and investigating nanomaterials. To this end he/she will write the beamtime application, coordinate the beamtime preparation and will perform the in-situ experiments jointly with the team at KTH, UHH and DESY. Additionally, he/she will apply the numerical algorithms required to combine multi-beam and multi-slicing ptychography.
A university degree in a relevant field plus doctorate.
She/he will be ideally chemist, physicist or nanoscientist by trainee and advanced user of scanning coherent X-Ray microscopy (ptychography). Further requirements: Good understanding of solid-state physics, proven experience with scanning X-Ray microscopy methods, excellent programming skills (Phyton, C++, CUDA) good communication and self-management skills. PHD in the relevant field and experience with inorganic nanoparticle synthesis in solution and their characterization is a strong plus. Excellent communication in English is necessary.
