Beamline Scientist (m/f) at P03 Nanofocus Endstation

Date 22.06.2016
Administration Institute of Materials Research
Location Hamburg

The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG) 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, the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht jointly operates the High Energy Materials Science Beamline (HEMS, P07), the Imaging Beamline (IBL, P05) and the Nanofocus Endstation of Micro- and Nanofocus X-ray Scattering Beamline (MINAXS, P03) along with supporting lab spaces.

The Nanofocus Endstation of the beamline P03 is operated in collaboration with DESY and the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel. The primary objective of the Nanofocus Endstation is to provide X-ray diffraction techniques in SAXS / WAXS / GISAXS / GIWAXS geometries with a nanofocused X-ray beam (X-ray nanodiffraction) to a wide international user community, with a strong focus on materials science and nanotechnology related research. It is one of very few places in the world, where a high-energy nanofocused X-ray beam (250nm) is routinely provided for high spatial resolution X-ray diffraction experiments.

In this framework we are looking for a beamline scientist (m/f) at P03 Nanofocus Endstation. The position will initially be for three years with the option of an extension. The place of employment is Hamburg.

PostDoc (m/f) at P05 Nano-Tomography Endstation

Date 16.06.2016
Administration Institute of Materials Research
Location Hamburg

The 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, the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht jointly operates the High Energy Materials Science Beamline (HEMS, P07), the Imaging Beamline (IBL, P05) and the Nanofocus Endstation of Micro- and Nanofocus X-ray Scattering Beamline (MINAXS, P03) along with supporting lab spaces.

The Imaging Beamline P05 is optimized for micro- and nano-tomography techniques with a strong focus on material science and life science applications and is actively used by members from the DFG funded Collaborative Research Centre project SFB 986 "Tailor-Made Multi-Scale Materials Systems-M³“. Its unique beam characteristics promote novel applications of tomographic techniques, ultra-fast in-situ measurements as well as highest spatial and density resolution. Additionally, the highly coherent beam enables the application of phase contrast methods with a spatial resolution below 100 nm.

In this framework we are looking for a PostDoc (m/f) at P05 Nano-Tomography Endstation. The position will initially be for four years with the option of an extension. more
