Ref. E/15/15 T-ReX PostDoc Research Associate at FERMI (copy)

Elettra-Sincrotrone Trieste is an international multidisciplinary research center operated as a user facility, featuring a 2.4 GeV, third-generation synchrotron light source and a variety of support laboratories. The extremely high quality of the machine and beamlines has set new performance records and has been producing results of great scientific interest. See for more information. A free-electron laser (FEL) based, fourth generation source - FERMI - is currently under commissioning. See for more information.

Elettra has very extensive programs in the field of microscopy operating several VUV/x-ray microscopy beamlines. The Spectromicroscopy beamline operates in the 20-300 eV photon energy range and hosts a low photon energy, scanning angle-resolved photoemission microscope. Research focuses on the study of the electronic structure of materials on the submicron scale in different fields, including materials science and solid state physics.
See for more information.

Job Description: The successful candidate will be involved in the study of electronic structure properties of materials and nanostructures (from graphene or high Tc superconductors to fuel cells).He/she will collaboratewith the beamline staff and users in running and further developing the Spectromicroscopy beamline and end station in order to accomplish the experimental program.

Qualifications: A Ph.D. in Physics, Chemistry or a related discipline is required. Experience in most of the following fields is required: photoelectron spectroscopy and/or microscopy, angle resolved photoemissionspectroscopy and/or microscopy, sample surface preparation, high or ultra-high vacuum methods for surface analysis, film growth and construction of scientific equipment relevant to synchrotron beamlines.
 Good time management skills and ability to prioritize are expected, together withthe ability to interact with staff and facility users and to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team. Good oral and written communication skills in English are essential.

The search will be opened immediately and will continue until a suitable candidate is found. The appointment envisioned is a Research Associate contract of an initial 12 months duration. The salary will be commensurate with previous experience and qualifications of the candidate.
