ID02 is a high-resolution time-resolved SAXS/WAXS/USAXS instrument featuring a 34 m long detector tube combined with state-of-the-art detectors. In addition, XPCS can be performed in the SAXS/USAXS configuration. The beamline is primarily dedicated to research on soft materials and biological specimens.
Your primary missions as a Beamline Scientist will be to
- provide support to external users acting as a local contact and be actively involved in the operation of the beamline
- contribute to the maintenance and development of the beamline, new sample environments and data analysis methods, together with other beamline staff
- develop your own in-house research programme, which should remain at the forefront of soft matter or biophysical science.
Current in-house research topics include dynamics of active colloids, spontaneous self-assembly processes in amphiphilic systems, and the interplay between microstructure and rheology in complex fluids. Your research programme should be focused on exploiting high resolution and time-resolved scattering methods for the investigation of the structure and dynamics of soft matter or biological systems that will further diversify current beamline activities.
The appointment will be for a fixed term of up to five years. Further information about this post can be obtained from Dr. T. Narayanan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
