BeamLine Operation Manager (BLOM) for X-ray nano-imaging activities in the X-ray Nanoprobe group

Context & Job description

ESRF is a world leading facility for X-ray microscopy, and provides high-brilliance beams focused down to a few tens of nanometers to perform coherent imaging techniques, X-ray fluorescence microscopy and nanotomography. The main scientific areas covered by X-ray nano-tomography are cellular biology, neurosciences, biomineralization and advanced materials science (in particular energy materials and additive manufacturing).

You will play a crucial role in the operation, maintenance, and instrumental developments of nano-imaging stations, known for their strong track record in methodological development and instrumentation for hard X-ray microscopy.

Providing user support will be a key responsibility, offering significant opportunities for collaborative work at the forefront of the field. You will be involved in continuous beamline improvements and upgrades, which are essential for maintaining its competitiveness and appeal. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to engage in research programmes in close collaboration with the beamline team.
