Lunds universitet, MAX IV, Spectroscopy

Lunds universitet grundades 1666 och rankas återkommande som ett av världens 100 främsta lärosäten. Här finns 42 000 studenter och 7 400 medarbetare i Lund, Helsingborg och Malmö. Vi förenas i vår strävan att förstå, förklara och förbättra vår värld och människors villkor.

MAX IV-laboratoriet är en nationell forskningsanläggning som tillhandahåller forskningsinstrument för forskare från Sverige och övriga världen. Här forskas inom bland annat materialvetenskap, strukturbiologi, kemi och nanoteknologi. Fullt utbyggt kommer man att ta emot mer än 2 000 forskare årligen. 200 personer är idag anställda vid MAX IV-laboratoriet.

Tasks:

The Balder beamline is dedicated to XAS and XES techniques with focus on in-situ studies in energy range 2.4-40 keV. The beamline is in commissioning phase at the 3 GeV storage ring at the MAX IV Laboratory and is expected to go into user operation from 2018.

We are now looking for a research engineer with strong background and interest in hard X-ray synchrotron radiation based techniques and instrumentation, preferably in XAFS spectroscopy or X-ray emission spectroscopy. You are expected to lead assembly and installation of instrumentation of the experimental station and participate in commissioning. In the operations phase you will share responsibility for operation and user support, maintenance, and further development of the beamline. The user support involves contact with the users before their experiments in order to make sure that all necessary technical preparations and other prerequisites are in place for the experiments. The nature of the participation in user support will depend on the interests and the profile of the successful candidate.

Qualifications:

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to engage in research and development projects at the beamline with a very active Scandinavian user community. The successful candidate must fulfill following qualifications:

•University degree in natural sciences or engineering subjects of relevance for hard X-ray beamlines and solid background in the techniques and technologies relevant for the Balder beamline. A PhD degree is considered an advantage.
•Demonstrated experience in working at synchrotron radiation facilities as beamline staff.
•Demonstrated experience in the design, construction, including also the planning, running, and maintenance stages, of complex scientific equipment is a merit. •Demonstrated practical experience of developing, running, and maintaining equipment relevant for XAS or XES measurements including sample environments, gas handling systems, and detector systems is considered a merit.
•Demonstrated ability to work in teams and interact with a diverse group of scientists and technical staff in a dynamic environment.
•You have excellent command of English, both oral and written, very good communication skills, and good team working skills including also ability to work independently and plan your own time.

Probationary period may apply.
