DESY is one of the world’s leading research centres for photon science, particle and astroparticle physics as well as accelerator physics.

More than 2400 employees work at our two locations Hamburg and Zeuthen in science, technology and administration.

DESY looks back on a long tradition in synchrotron radiation experiments in a wide range of applications and has developed into one of the leading centres in this field worldwide.

For high-end synchrotron radiation applications, the 3rd generation source PETRA III is available since 2009 as one of the most brilliant hard X-ray sources worldwide.

The beamline P01 - DYNAMICS hosts an end station for Nuclear Resonant Scattering (NRS) which profits from a highly intense X-ray beam, which in combination with micro focusing allows for a new generation of experiments.

We are looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral scientist to support the user program, to contribute to our in-house research program by own research projects and to commissioning of the NRS technique at the beamline.

  • Profound knowledge in instrumentation for 3rd generation synchrotron beamlines
  • Knowledge and experience in experimental physics in the field of X-ray scattering
  • Written and oral communication skills in English
  • Experience in Nuclear Resonant Scattering experiments and / or profound knowledqe in X-ray optics are favorable
  • The position is limited to 2 years.

    Salary and benefits are commensurate with those of public service organisations in Germany. Classification is based upon qualifications and assigned duties.
