The ELI Project is an integral part of the European plan to build the next generation of large research facilities. ELI-Beamlines as a cutting-edge laser facility is currently being commissioned near Prague, Czech Republic. ELI will be delivering ultra-short, ultra-intense laser pulses lasting typically a few tens of femtoseconds (10-100 fs) with peak power projected to reach 10 PW. It will make available time synchronized sources ranging from IR to hard X-rays for multi-disciplinary applications in physics, medicine, biology, material science etc.
The group devoted to Laser driven X-ray sources within the department 86 (Radiation physics and electron acceleration) is expanding and recruiting physicists in relevant fields for implementation and further development of the laser-plasma X-ray sources.
In our team we therefore have the following position available:
POSTDOC/SENIOR RESEARCHER (166) - High-repetition rate laser-driven X-ray sources
The candidate is supposed to work predominantly on the following topics:
- user operation of an X-ray source based on interaction of high-power laser with high-density target and its coordination;
- further development of the X-ray source, its diagnostics, and application experiments;
- development of a user research program centred on this type of source.
- PhD in physics or related field;
- experience with laser-driven X-ray sources;
- good knowledge of spoken and written English is necessary;
- excellent communication skills, ability to work in a team;
- ability to lead a relatively independent research programme.
- the opportunity to participate in this unique scientific project;
- career growth, professional education;
- competitive and motivating salary;
- 5 weeks of holiday and other employee benefits.
