We are looking for creative scientists who would like to advance our
investigations into various problems in physics and to conduct state-of-the-
art research at our synchrotron in a responsible and team oriented way.
Do you enjoy solving fundamental problems in physics, and are you fascinated
by the complex technology behind time-resolved X-ray experiments? Then this
position offers excellent development potential, with you gradually taking on
more responsibility. You are expected to advance at least one of the key
issues of the research group at HZB:
Heat transport on nanoscales by electrons, phonons and other
Couplings of the crystal lattice to ferroelectricity and
Structural phase transitions
The focus will be on time-resolved X-ray experiments at the KMC3-XPP station
and at the laser-driven plasma source with sub-picosecond time resolution.
The employment contract is initially limited to 2 years with the option of
You will develop the KMC3-XPP beamline through novel experiments and
foster a focused user community.
You will support the external users of the KMC3-XPP beamline.
You will perform complementary time-resolved x-ray experiments at the
synchrotron and at the laser-based plasma source in order to gain a
complete picture of the structural dynamics.
You will collaborate with the ultrafast dynamics group at the University
of Potsdam regarding (time-resolved) experiments and modeling of
