DESY is one of the world’s leading research centres for photon science, particle and astroparticle physics as well as accelerator physics.
With the storage ring PETRA III and the Free-Electron-Laser FLASH, DESY offers a unique combination of photon sources to the scientific community. PETRA III, one of the most brilliant hard X-ray facilities world wide, currently provides 17 undulator beamlines for experiments utilizing the extreme source
brilliance. For the extension of the PETRA III facility, DESY is seeking a scientist to develop and implement new concepts and instrumentation for photoelectron spectroscopy techniques using hard X-ray excitation (”HAXPES”, 3-15 keV) at the new undulator beamline P22.
Develop an independent research program using HAXPES at the beamline
Design and implement relevant instrumentation including sample environments
Employ relevant data reduction and evaluation software
Perform scientific projects and work closely with external collaborators
Profound knowledge of solid state photoemission techniques
Experience with photoelectron spectroscopy using synchrotron radiation
Knowledge of X-ray physics beneficial
Experimental skills and interest in instrumentation development
Excellent knowledge of English
Ability to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team
