DESY, with its 2700 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.
For high-end synchrotron radiation applications, the 3rd generation source PETRA III is available since 2009 as one of the most brilliant hard X-ray sources worldwide currently operating 23 undulator beamlines for experiments utilizing the extreme source brilliance. At beamline P22 high-energy X-rays are used as a powerful tool for solid state spectro-microscopy. The beamline operates several specialized instruments for high-resolution studies on the electronic and chemical structure of functional nano-materials. We are seeking to hire a scientist with a particular focus on hard X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and heterogeneous catalysis and solid-state spectroscopy.
- Develop your own research in the field of catalysis and disseminate the results
- Participate in the development and commissioning of experimental instrumentation for P22
