BM05 is an X-ray imaging and instrumentation beamline featuring a new two-pole wiggler source, installed during the ESRF-EBS upgrade. BM05’s primary activity is in imaging, using X-ray tomography and topography. Both endstations have received recent upgrades to make them state-of-the-art, and the beamline serves diverse communities from biomedical imaging, to palaeontology, to materials science.
You will participate in the maintenance and development of the beamline, provide support to the beamline scientific staff and external scientific visitors, and closely interact with various ESRF support groups in seeking timely help for repairs and preventive maintenance tasks. Together with the beamline scientists, you will participate in the development and installation of instrumentation specific to the beamline.
Regular tasks include surveillance of correct functioning of ancillary equipment and advanced X-ray detectors, management of sample shipment from users, and installation of sample environments for user experiments. In addition, during the synchrotron shutdown period you will be required to undertake essential repair tasks, preventive maintenance and if necessary installation of new equipment.
Your missions are the following:
