Postdoc / Beamline Scientist (f/m/d)

We are looking for creative scientists who would like to advance our investigations into various problems in physics and to conduct state-of-the-art research at our synchrotron in a responsible and team oriented way.
Do you enjoy solving fundamental problems in physics, and are you fascinated by the complex technology behind time-resolved X-ray experiments?

Then this position offers excellent development potential, with you gradually taking on more responsibility.  You are expected to advance at least one of the key issues of the research group at HZB:

  • Heat transport on nanoscales by electrons, phonons and other quasiparticles
  • Couplings of the crystal lattice to ferroelectricity and (anti-)ferromagnetism
  • Structural phase transitions

We look forward to receiving your application via our application management system by 31.12.2021 here:
