The Central European Research Infrastructure Consortium - CERIC–ERIC (), is an integrated multidisciplinary Research Infrastructure open for basic and applied research in all fields of material and biomaterial sciences and nanotechnology. CERIC has been established by integrating advanced research facilities based in 8 countries (Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania and Slovenia) into a unique European entity supporting the creation of basic and applied knowledge and promoting the mobility of researchers in an international multicultural scientific environment.
Post-doctoral position is available for the CERIC-ERIC project Dyna Chiro – Spectroscopy and Dynamics of Chiral Systems. The project will investigate the chiral and dynamical properties of matter using the Elettra and Solaris synchrotrons, and other facilities within the CERIC consortium. In addition, instrumentation development will be carried out.
The position will be located at the Solaris synchrotron**, Krakow, Poland**. The successful candidate will perform experiments on topological insulators using synchrotron light and laser (High Harmonic Generation) sources, under the supervision of Prof. M. Stankiewicz and Prof. J. Szade. In addition, the candidate will participate in soft x-ray beamline development. The candidate will work in collaboration with the other Italian and Slovenian partners in the project.
Duration - 12 months, with the possibility of renewal for up to a further 12 months subject to satisfactory performance.
