The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG), in Geesthacht, near Hamburg, and in Teltow, near Berlin, conducts materials and coastal research. You can find more information at: www.hzg.de
HZG is one of the 19 national institutions of the Hermann von Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres e.V. (HGF). Around 950 employees carry out basic research and development work in close cooperation with national and international research institutions, research-oriented clinics and economic and public institutions.
At the Institute of Coastal Researchabout 150 scientists research processes on the coast and interactions between the land, the sea and humans. The objective of the three sub-institutes "Biogeochemistry in Coastal Seas", "Operational Systems" and "System Analysis and Modelling" is to create the scientific basis for sustainable development and future-oriented management of the coasts.
Instrument Scientist (m/f/d)
code no. 2019/WP 4
The place of employment is Hamburg (outstation at DESY).
Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht operates an outstation at DESY in Hamburg in order to provide access to highly brilliant synchrotron radiation within its German Engineering Materials Science Center (GEMS). At the PETRA III synchrotron radiation source, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht operates the High Energy Materials Science Beamline (HEMS, P07; jointly with DESY), the Imaging Beamline (IBL, P05) and the Nanofocus Endstation of the Micro and Nanofocus X‑ray Scattering Beamline (MINAXS, P03; jointly with DESY) along with supporting laboratories (www.gems.hzg.de).
Recently, DESY has extended PETRA III with two extensions. DESY and HZG are building the new beamline P61 at one of the extensions for use with white X-ray beams. The HZG part (P61A) of the beamline will focus on engineering materials research. Among others, experiments for residual stress analysis and spatially and time-resolved phase analysis will be offered to users. The beamline is expected to start user service in 2020.
Within this framework we are looking for a PostDoc as Instrument Scientist (m/f/d) at the new white-beam beamline. The position will initially be limited to three years with the option of an extension. The place of employment is Hamburg (outstation at DESY).
The promotion of equal rights is a matter of course for us. Severely disabled persons and those equaling severely disabled persons who are equally suitable for the position will be considered preferentially within the framework of legal requirements.
