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

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 department Metal Physics of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht researches novel metallic and intermetallic light weight materials for cleaner and noise reduced aero engines of civilian aeroplanes. Research on those materials is undertaken using electron microscopy, in situ characterization at synchrotron sources and mechanical testing. We operate a high resolution abberation corrected FEI TITAN 80-300 transmission electron microscope, a Philips CM200 transmission electron microscope and a LEO Gemini scanning electron microscope with field emission gun.

For the technical support of those electron microscopes and the related equipment for specimen preparation we search at the earliest possible date a technician/engineer (m/f/d). The position is initially on a two year contract with a possibility to be extended to a permanent position. The place of employment is Geesthacht (Germany).
