As a postdoctoral fellow, you will be strongly involved in all the beamline activities: you will establish your own in-house research programme, participate in the commissioning and development of the beamline instruments and provide support to external users as local contact.
The Matter at Extremes group comprises six beamlines providing a wide panel of X-ray techniques:
Applications cover scientific fields such as materials science, physics, chemistry, Earth and planetary science.
We are looking for post-docs with various profiles, interested in instrumental (hardware and software) development as well as applications of synchrotron radiation in these scientific fields.
Applicants are highly encouraged to visit our web pages (https://www.esrf.eu/home/UsersAndScience/find-a-beamline.html) to know more about our activities and to contact the beamline responsible to further discuss their project.
We offer a comprehensive benefits package designed to support your quality of life and your installation in the Grenoble area when relocation is needed.
The monthly salary may be complemented by additional allowances upon eligibility (expatriation allowance, etc...).
The European Synchrotron, the ESRF, is an international research centre based in Grenoble, France.
Through its innovative engineering, pioneering scientific vision and a strong commitment from its 700 staff members, the ESRF is recognised as one of the top research facilities worldwide. Its particle accelerator produces intense X-ray beams that are used by thousands of scientists each year for experiments in diverse fields such as biology, medicine, environmental sciences, cultural heritage, materials science, and physics.
Supported by 22 countries, the ESRF is an equal opportunity employer and encourages diversity.
