You will play a major role in the operation and further development of the ID13 beamline as well as in the other activities of the group.
The beamline’s mission is to develop micro/nano-beam scanning diffraction/scattering experiments, often combined with specific sample environments for in-situ experiments, optionally exploiting the beam’s coherence. Current instrumental interests include the area of sub-ms time-resolved and three-dimensional methods such as micro/nano-diffraction tomography. There is a strong emphasis on soft matter/biology and bio-mineralization in particular. However, the beamline’s in-house research programme also covers typical material science topics such as investigating high-Tc super conductors, and geological/extraterrestrial samples. Furthermore, ID13 is invested in applied research, e.g. on energy storage, hard coating materials, and industrial polymers. The successful candidate is welcome to introduce new scientific subjects, making use of the beamline’s capabilities.
As a Beamline Scientist, your missions are the following:
