PhD and Postdoc positions in X-ray microscopy


Suggested start date: 1 September 2022

Postdoc:   PhD:
  Duration: Two years   Duration: Three years 
 Salary level: USD 5,800/month  Salary level: USD 3,800/month

Join the group that developed hard X-ray microscope at the European Synchrotron Radiation Source (ESRF) in Grenoble, France. We aim to make 3D movies of the self-organization of dislocations when metals are deformed, and thereby provide a first-principles physics understanding of deformation. We are looking for outstanding and motivated candidates to join our international group, where we combine X-ray physics, simulations of experiments and scientific computing with dislocation dynamics simulations. You will also be part of a new Danish Center-of-Excellence on hard materials in 3D, SOLID, where you will be interacting with 15 other PhDs and postdocs, all exploiting the latest 3D methods based on large scale x-ray and neutron facilities, within in a broad range of fields spanning CO2 storage, batteries, ferroelectrics, martensitic transformations, and biomineralization. You will be based at the Technical University of Denmark, but with frequent visits to and a major interaction with teams at the ESRF. Your responsibility will be adapted to your background: by default, it will be advanced data analysis, planning and operation of experiments at ESRF, and interpretation of results.
