Job description:


DESY, with its 2700 employees at its two locations in Hamburg and Zeuthen, is one of the world's leading research centres. Its research focuses on decoding the structure and function of matter, from the smallest particles of the universe to the building blocks of life. In this way, DESY contributes to solving the major questions and urgent challenges facing science, society and industry. With its ultramodern research infrastructure, its interdisciplinary research platforms and its international networks, DESY offers a highly attractive working environment in the fields of science, technology and administration as well as for the education of highly qualified young scientists.

With the storage ring PETRA III and the Free-Electron-Laser FLASH, DESY offers a unique combination of photon sources to the scientific community. PETRA III, one of the most brilliant hard X-ray facilities world wide, currently provides 23 undulator beamlines for experiments utilizing the extreme source brilliance. High-energy X-rays are a powerful tool for the characterisation of polycrystalline materials and are utilized at the P07 and P21 beamlines. Over the last decade, grain resolved diffraction techniques have been demonstrated and advanced instrumentation has been implemented. We are seeking a scientist for the implementation of data analysis and reconstruction software that will be used by both beamlines.
