The candidate is expected to employ keV and MeV ion beams in basic and applied research. Basic research in ion-solid interaction with a focus on meeting upcoming demands in applications is considered an important aspect of the planned research. Applied research conducted mainly for ultra-thin film systems of relevance in electronics, optics, for hard coatings and in related interdisciplinary projects can be part of the working duties. Contributions to and new initiatives in method development at the main experimental facilities, i.e. the 5 MV tandem accelerator and the 350 kV implanter with associated ToF-MEIS system will comprise an important part of the working duties. Working with new installations including a Low-energy ion scattering system will be part of the duties within the employment. Also engagement in developing advanced data analysis is expected. Taking over responsibilities in collaboration projects with industry is anticipated. Supervision of undergraduate and PhD-student projects can be part of the working duties.
Qualifications: The holder of a position as researcher must have a PhD degree or equivalent. Well-documented research experience using ion beams for material research, fundamental studies or materials modifications is expected. A good fundamental understanding of ion-solid interaction is required. Experience in thin film technology is considered to be of advantage.
Employment Period: The period of employment is 2 years
