Post-Doc Position available!
In the framework of the our activities in the Advanced Study Group of the University of Hamburg within the Centre of Free-Electron Laser Science a Post-Doc position for experimental studies of ultrafast dynamics at surfaces and interfaces is available in our group. We would like to fill this position as soon as possible.
In collaboration with our partners in Hamburg and Stanford we develop time-resolved soft X-ray spectroscopy with the goal to study femtosecond chemistry at surfaces and interfaces. The experiments are prepared in our laboratory and at different synchrotron radiation sources e.g. PETRA III at DESY in Hamburg, BESSY in Berlin, MAXLAB in Lund. Ultimately, the experiments will be performed at the Free-Electron Lasers FLASH at DESY in Hamburg and LCLS at SLAC in Stanford.
The ideal candidate is in possession of a Ph. D in Physics or Chemistry, and is an excellent experimentalist with the proven ability to work in a team using complex experimental systems. He/She has a good working knowledge of ultra high vacuum and surface science techniques. Experience in x-ray spectroscopy using synchrotron radiation is highly desirable. In addition, it would be very good if the candidate has a proven record in the investigation of ultrafast surface dynamics such as e.g. charge transfer processes between adsorbates and substrates.
The position is initially for two years with possibility of extension. The salary level will follow the German public employment rules.
Applications should be send to Prof. Wilfried Wurth (by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) until Jan, 10th 2010.
