ELI Beamlines research centre in Dolní Břežany is part of pan-European infrastructure ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) representing a unique tool of support of scientific excellence in Europe by making available its capacities to the best scientific teams across the world. The aim of ELI Beamlines is to establish the most intensive laser system in the world and to operate it on a long-term basis. Due to ultra-high performances of 10 PW (1 petawatt = 1,000,000,000,000,000 watts) and concentrated intensities of up to 1024 W/cm2, we can offer our users a unique source of radiation and beams of accelerated particles. The so called beamlines will enable groundbraking research in the area of physics and science dealing with materials, but also in biomedicine and laboratory astrophysics and many other fields. ELI Beamlines is part of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, and it was open in 2015.
The Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences is a holder of the HR Excellence in Research Award. It is awarded by the European Commission to institutions which put significant effort into improving their HR strategy and ensuring professional and ethical working conditions.
The research group RP2 is expanding and recruiting physicists in relevant fields for the research and development of the laser driven X-ray sources and for their application in user experiments. In our team we therefore have the following position available:
The candidate is supposed to work predominantly on the following topics:
- development, implementation and operation of laser driven secondary sources of XUV and X-ray radiation at the ELI Beamlines facility
- technical and scientific support of the experimental programme at ELI and other local or foreign laser laboratories
- implementation of users’ application experiments
- an university degree (BSc, MSc or PhD) in physics or engineering
- knowledge of optics and vacuum technology
- fluent in English for speaking and writing; knowledge of Czech is a plus
- high level of self-motivation, ability to work in a team as well as independently
- the opportunity to participate in this unique scientific project
- competitive and motivating salary
- flexible working hours
