Postdoctoral Fellow on ID09 in the framework of the Characterisation Programme of the IRT Nanoelec

Context & Job description

Your mission in the context of this position are:

  • Undertake a research programme in the framework of the IRT Nanoelec project and of an Innovation Led Long Term Proposal (iLTP) aimed at using short X-ray pulses for the evaluation of the radiation hardness performances of electronic components.
  • Participate in the experimental programme (data acquisition and data analysis) defined together with the project partners (a team of academic and industrial organisations, among the most active in the domain of nano and micro-electronics in Europe).
  • Contribute to the ID09 beamline operation programme and provide support to the ID09 beamline users.

Your main tasks in the context of this mission are:

  • Carry out research project(s) at the forefront of world science in coordination with the ID09 beamline staff and/or with the industrial partners of the iLTP project.
  • Support data acquisition activities and data analysis connected with the scientific programme of the iLTP project.
  • Prepare scientific papers for publication.
  • Promote and represent the IRT Nanoelec research through participation in conferences, workshops and other events.
  • Run the scientific programme associated with the industrial partners with respect to all accesses in the domain of irradiation of electronic components
  • Participate in IRT Nanoelec project tasks such as working groups, meetings, summer school organisation, general assemblies.


Expected profile

  • D. in Solid State Physics, Nanoscience or Nanoelectronics, Photonics, Nuclear Physics, Materials science or Microelectronics.
  • Experience in synchrotron radiation (X-rays) and/or ionising radiation would be an asset.
  • Management of scientific projects including planning and performing experiments as well as publishing of the results
  • Strong sense of responsibility for scientific quality of experiments both external users and in-house, including the most efficient use of beamline equipment
  • Ability to work in a team.
  • Proficiency in English (working language at the ESRF)

Working conditions

Contract of 18 months, renewable for a further 6 to 18-month period.
