Two postdoctoral positions available in Hamburg

We are seeking two exceptional postdoctoral candidates to help develop a time-resolved endstation at the EMBL beamline P14 at PETRA III for ns-ms time-resolved diffraction experiments that will complement the faster experiments possible at the soon to be operational neighbouring European XFEL. The project will encompass all aspects of a time-resolved pump-probe X-ray diffraction experiment, including X-ray beam delivery, pump-probe synchronisation, sample delivery, data acquisition and processing. Candidates will be expected to work on endstation design, construction and commissioning, as well as supporting proof-of-principle time-resolved experiments on P14, other beamlines, and existing ultrafast optical spectroscopy setups. The successful candidates will become part of an interdisciplinary team from the University of Hamburg, DESY and EMBL. We’re particularly looking for candidates who have experience of the development and integration of synchrotron instrumentation or time-resolved laser applications, as well as implementing instrument control.
The deadline for applications is the 23rd December 2016 for a planned start date in March 2017 and more details, including application instructions, can be found here:
