About the position

A position as a Postdoctoral Researcher in experimental physics within the field of coherent X-ray microscopy is available at the Department of Physics, NTNU.

Starting date early fall 2021 or as agreed upon.

The position is for 2 years.

We are searching for a creative, skilled and ambitious candidate for our activities on coherent X-ray microscopies within the ICONIC project funded under the FRINATEK program of the Norwegian Research Council. The candidate will work in an international team of several principal investigators, PhD students, postdocs and master students. External collaboration with other academic research groups and industry actors is an important part for the position.

The ICONIC project aims to utilize recent breakthroughs in coherent X-ray diffraction imaging (CXDI) to image biomineralisation mechanism by studying the progression from the earliest nucleation events to the final mineral phases. The project will be implemented by development of in-situ and liquid-phase CXDI in combination with time resolved small-angle (SAXS) and wide-angle X-ray scattering (WAXS). The candidate will be involved in the development and implementation of CXDI in liquid phase to study dynamic processes and establishment of appropriate computational tools for data analysis. ICONIC is collaboration between NTNU, Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) in Belgium, ESRF in France, University of Oslo in Norway and the University of Le Mans in France.
