For our location in Hamburg we are seeking:

Research Software Engineer for controls

Remuneration Group 13 | Limited: 2 years | Starting date: earliest possible | ID: FSMA007/2024 | Deadline: open | Full-time/Part-time

DESY, with more than 3000 employees at its two locations in Hamburg and Zeuthen, is one of the world's leading research centres. Its research focuses on decoding the structure and function of matter, from the smallest particles of the universe to the building blocks of life. In this way, DESY contributes to solving the major questions and urgent challenges facing science, society and industry. With its ultramodern research infrastructure, its interdisciplinary research platforms and its international networks, DESY offers a highly attractive working environment in the fields of science, technology and administration as well as for the education of highly qualified young scientists.

The Advanced Multilayer X-ray Optics group (FS-ML) is an international team of scientists, students and engineers. We are developing novel X-ray optics and imaging modalities for experiments with intense, coherent X-ray sources such as synchrotrons and X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs). These sources have opened up new opportunities for breaking barriers in focusing, dispersing, and otherwise controlling X-ray pulses in space and time. Our multilayer-based optics are prepared with magnetron sputtering systems, which require sophisticated software control that ensures very high accuracy in their deposition. We are looking for a new member to join our group as a Research software engineer for controls to work on the development, implementation and testing software control programs to control such systems and other instrumentation used in our experiments.

About your role:

  • The software development, testing and implementation to control various hardware components (motors, DAQ, PLC) including advanced programmable sputtering machines in the laboratory and X-ray microscopy setups needed to perform experiments at synchrotrons and XFELs in coordination with the scientists
  • Participation in experiments at synchrotrons and XFELs
  • Systematic further development of the above advanced control systems
  • Documentation of software and testing
Good reasons to join:

Look forward to a unique working environment on our international research campus. Respectful cooperation and the well-being of our DESY employees are particularly important to us. Gender equality is an important aspect for us. To support work life balance we offer flexible working hours, variable part-time, job-sharing models and participation in mobile work (up to 50%). You will benefit from our family-friendly and collegial atmosphere, our established health management and occupational pension provision. As a public funded employer, we offer you a secure workplace and facilitate your individual career with our comprehensive training and development opportunities. Remuneration is according to the regulations of the TV-AVH. DESY offers its employees a financial supplement for a German job ticket at both locations.

Limited: 2 years

About you:

  • University degree in computer science, physics, engineering or comparable subject or equivalent skills and experience
  • Profound experience in the control of various hardware components (motors, DAQ, PLC)
  • Very good technical knowledge of various programming languages such as Python, C, C++
  • Good knowledge of the various APIs (application programming interfaces)
  • Knowledge of real-time processing, Linux system administration
  • Enthusiasm for good software engineering methods (such as version control, testing)
  • Willingness to work across disciplines and acquire new skills
  • Communication skills and ability to work in a team
  • Good written and spoken English skills

For further information please contact Dr. Saša Bajt at +49 40 8998-9-2082 (sasa.bajt@desy.de).

Please submit your complete application documents (letter of motivation, CV and relevant certificates).

We look forward to receiving your application via our application portal:
