Scientific Assistance (f/m) to the PETRA IV Project
DESY is one of the world’s leading research centres for photon science, particle and astroparticle physics as well as accelerator physics.
The brilliant synchrotron radiation source PETRA III as well as the intense free-electron laser FLASH and our in-house research groups like DESY CFEL offer a broad range of research opportunities, ranging from life science to the study of fundamental physical processes in various areas. DESY is active also in the development of enabling technologies like detector and laser physics. Currently, DESY plans the conversion of PETRA III into a synchrotron radiation source with ultralow-emittance, PETRA IV, able to provide beams of hard X-rays with unprecedented coherence properties that can be focused to dimensions in the nanometre-regime.
• Preparation of scientific and project reports within the PETRA IV project • Participation in the organization of conferences, workshops and meetings • Coordination of activities within the PETRA IV project management • Coordination of communication between the project team, project partners and the DESY management
• Ph.D. in a natural science, preferably physics, or similar qualification • Experience in scientific reporting as well as in organization and management of scientific projects • Good team spirit • Excellent knowledge of the German and English language
