RESEARCH ASSOCIATE FOR THE PROJECT
“Cluster of Excellence 'Advanced Imaging of
Matter' - Advanced X-ray Imaging and
Interferometry”


- SALARY LEVEL 13 TV-L -


The position in accordance with Section 28 subsection 3 of the Hamburg higher education act
(Hamburgisches Hochschulgesetz, HmbHG) commences on 16 September 2019.


This is a fixed-term contract in accordance with Section 2 of the academic fixed-term labor contract act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz, WissZeitVG). The term is fixed for a period of 2 years.


The position calls for 39 hours per week.


Responsibilities:
Duties include academic services in the project named above. Research associates may also pursue independent research and further academic qualifications.


Specific Duties:
Within a collaborative setting, the candiate will develop novel methods to image particles and
biological objects using X-ray free-electron laser pulses, including using coherent scattering and
X-ray fluorescence. They will contribute to the design, execution, and analysis of experiments to
explore the limits of structure determination. As needed, they may design and test methods to
invert low-signal diffraction and interference patterns obtained from time-varying objects or solutions of identical particles and/or develop new instrumentation and methods to acquire such
signals.


Requirements:
A university degree in a relevant subject plus doctorate. A suitable background in imaging
science or physics is required. Experience with experiments at X-ray free-electron lasers or
synchrotron radiation facilities is preferred, ideally in the field of coherent diffractive imaging or
microscopy. The candidate must enjoy working in an interdisciplinary team environment, and
must have excellent communication skills.
