Unraveling the Structure‑Function Relationship in the Molecular Sciences
The Controlled Molecule Imaging group at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science, DESY and Universität Hamburg, develops innovative methods to obtain full control over large molecules and nanoparticles. These methods and the created controlled samples are exploited in fundamental physics and chemistry studies to unravel the underlying mechanisms of chemistry and biology by watching molecules at work.
Within the federal center of excellence "The Hamburg Center for Ultrafast Imaging (CUI)" we have an opening for a postdoctoral position on
Imaging and optimizing coherent nanotip-array electron sources
In this project we are working, jointly with the group of Franz Kärtner at CFEL, on measuring the electron emittance from single nanotips and nanotip arrays using an imaging spectrometer (VMI) through spatial-map and velocity-map imaging in order to characterize and optimize the electron packets from nanotip arrays. These ultrashort electron bunches could be used for ultrashort-pulse electron diffraction as well as for the realization of a tabletop coherent Inverse Compton Scattering hard-X-ray source.
The successful candidate will have an outstanding Ph.D. in experimental physics, physical chemistry, or a related field. Experience with velocity-map imaging, short-pulse lasers, or vacuum equipment is highly desirable.
