DESY, with its 2700 employees at its two locations in Hamburg and Zeuthen, is one of the world's leading research centres. Its research focuses on decoding the structure and function of matter, from the smallest particles of the universe to the building blocks of life. In this way, DESY contributes to solving the major questions and urgent challenges facing science, society and industry. With its ultramodern research infrastructure, its interdisciplinary research platforms and its international networks, DESY offers a highly attractive working environment in the fields of science, technology and administration as well as for the education of highly qualified young scientists.
With the storage ring PETRA III and the Free-Electron-Laser FLASH, DESY offers a unique combination of photon sources to the scientific community. PETRA III one of the most brilliant hard X-ray facilities worldwide, currently provides 23 undulator beamlines for experiments utilizing the extreme source brilliance. The new beamline P25 will be built for innovative industrially relevant applications and will also serve as a testbeam for new technical developments towards PETRA IV. We are looking for a highly motivated experienced scientist to plan and develop a fully automated instrument for high-throughput powder diffraction at P25 including commissioning and user support in synergy with the powder diffraction team at beamline P02.1. This beamline is specialized for high energy X-ray powder diffraction and PDF methods and works on in-situ crystallization and variable temperature studies, operando studies of battery materials and catalysts, through to stress-strain measurements and simple high-throughput rapid access data collections under ambient conditions. The candidate should also contribute to our in-house research program by own research projects.
The position is limited to 3 years.
Salary and benefits are commensurate with those of public service organisations in Germany. Classification is based upon qualifications and assigned duties. Persons with disabilities will be given preference to other equally qualified applicants. DESY operates flexible work schemes. DESY is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer and encourages applications from women.
