The successful candidate will continue to develop the Centre´s efforts within the field of structural dynamics during photo-initiated or electrically driven physical and chemical reactions. The role of the applicant will be to drive and participate in all elements of these investigations, from experiment planning and execution at state-of-the-art X-ray facilities to in-depth analysis of the acquired data and publication of results. Active participation in supervision of project students from the bachelor´s to the PhD level will be an integral part of the job.
The candidate is expected to have a PhD degree and we are looking for a person with a proven publication record within the field of structural dynamics in disordered media and with established experience in conducting synchrotron experiments. A very significant part of the job will be further developing the analysis of time-resolved X-ray data using in-house developed software, so the candidate must have a solid knowledge of scientific programming, preferably in Matlab. As the investigated phenomena take place at the interface between chemistry, physics and materials science, the candidate should have a relevant background in one or more of these fields.
