Tenure-track Group leader in the area of X-ray diffraction and Scattering with a focus on SAXS
Empa
St. Gallen, CH
vor 2 Tg.

We have a unique expertise and infrastructure in one laboratory combining X-ray diffraction (XRD), scattering (SAXS) and 3D imaging (XCT, XPCI) on various lengths scales.

Our core activities in the development X-ray based methods relate to soft matter such as polymers and complex biological systems with applications in the medical domain.

We focus on studies under various non-ambient environmental conditions (4D) giving access to structure dynamics.

In this tenure-track group leader position, you have the possibility to develop an international scientific profile and to obtain a permanent position after successful evaluations after 2 and 4 years.

Your tasks

  • R&D in the domain of X-ray analytics, with a focus on small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), non-ambient environmental studies, data analysis, modelling and simulations
  • Planning and leading scientific projects as well as an ongoing development of methods and equipment
  • writing project proposals and acquisition of external funding
  • presentation of scientific results through publications and on conferences
  • active engaging with scientific collaborators and industrial partners
  • Your profile

  • PhD degree in chemistry, biochemistry, materials science or physics
  • deep knowledge in X-ray diffraction and scattering methods
  • scientific excellence and being an independent researcher
  • creative, curious,thinking out of the box and interdisciplinary
  • proactive and convincing
  • successful in project acquisition (SNF, InnoSwiss or similar)
  • experienced in project management and writing scientific publications
  • fluent in English and German and enjoying a multicultural environment
  • We offer a challenging executive position at a research institution with excellent infrastructure and broad interdisciplinary surrounding.

    The work will be carried out at Empa St. Gallen. Starting date : 1st of November 2019 or by agreement.
