DESY is one of the world’s leading research centres for photon science,
particle and astroparticle physics as well as accelerator physics.
DESY looks back on a long tradition in synchrotron radiation experiments in 
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 P03/MiNaXS beamline is the world-leading facility for combining X-ray 
micro and nanobeams with
small- and wide-angle X-ray scattering with special focus on in-situ and 
rando investigations of functional and hybrid nanomaterials. We are seeking 
highly motivated postdoctoral researcher (f/m) for the P03/MiNaXS team.

The position:
- Participation in development of micro- and nanofocusing techniques at
- Development of sample environments for in-situ and operando investi-
gations of functional and nanoparticle coatings, especially vacuum or
solution-based deposition
- User support at P03/MiNaXS
- Pursuing a rigorous in-house research programme in the field of thin
films and hybrid nanomaterials with special focus an polymer-metal

- PhD in physics or comparable sciences
- Interest in synchrotron beamline developments
- Experience at synchrotron sources is highly desirable
- Experience in surface coating and thin film technologies
- Experience in GISAXS & GIWAXS
- Experience in atomic force microscopy
- Business fluent English
