PostDoc To The LDM-Team
Lundsuniversitet, MAX IV, Spectroscopy
Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has around 44 000 students and more than 8 000 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.
Lund University welcomes applicants with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We regard gender equality and diversity as a strength and an asset.
The Low-Density Matter (LDM) team at MAX IV is engaged in activities related to gas-phase and liquid phase research.
We are now looking for an enthusiastic and skilled postdoctoral researcher with expertise in LDM physics to participate in various projects managed by the LDM team at MAX IV.
In addition to participating in different aspects of design, building and commissioning of various pieces of equipment, the candidate is also expected to participate in user support when the LDM instrumentation is in use at one of MAX IV’s LDM-relevant beamlines.
Description of the LDM-team MAX IV currently has a number of LDM-relevant beamlines including FlexPES, FinEstBeAMS, VERITAS and RIXS @ SPECIES. Each of these beamlines are/will be capable of accommodating mobile LDM equipment, or has/will have the possibility of allowing some form of LDM measurements at one of its own end stations.
A mobile modular end station for LDM research is now available to general users at MAX IV. The ICE end station provides the MAX IV Low Density Matter community with instrumentation to enable high-resolution multi-coincidence and momentum imaging spectroscopies. More information regarding the ICE end station and other LDM equipment at MAX IV can be found here: https: // www. maxiv.lu.se/accelerators-beamlines/beamlines/low-density-matter- at-max-iv/
What we offer When you join our MAX IV family, you step into a world of front edge science. We make the invisible visible by supporting scientist from all over the world, generating scientific results for the benefit of society. We offer you a multicultural work environment with great opportunities for personal development with respect for a healthy work-life balance.
Would you like to work in a challenging and supporting environment? Then join us and take the opportunity to make a real difference!

Job description The work tasks of the postdoc in the LDM-team include, but are not limited to, the following:
Participate in the commissioning, maintenance, preparation and operation of various pieces of LDM equipment. This equipment includes the ICE end station and some sample delivery systems (molecular jet/cluster source and liquid jet sources)
Provide user support on LDM equipment
Participate in the design or build-up of more LDM relevant equipment when the need arises
The candidate will have the possibility to apply for beamtimes at MAX IV to conduct his or her own research using the LDM equipment at MAX IV or to apply for beamtimes at other facilities. Therefore, it is expected that the candidate will have a strong vision with regards to various research projects that they would like to pursue whilst employed in this position.
The candidate must hold a PhD in physics, solid state chemistry or another relevant field (please see “Terms of employment” below)
Documented experience in the use of ultra-high vacuum equipment
Documented experience in at least one relevant multi-coincident technique
Experience in working at a large-scale scientific facility (example synchrotron, FEL, etc) as either a user or as a member of staff
Experience in using/maintaining a relevant sample delivery system (example molecular beam sources, cluster sources or liquid jet source)
Experience in the handling of gases
The ability to work in a team and good communication skills are extremely important for this position
The successful candidate is expected to have the ability to work independently in the lab, as well as part of a team. This position is foreseen to involve collaboration with the LDM staff at the various beamlines
The candidate must also have a good command of the English language in order to effectively communicate with users and staff at the laboratory.
Additionally, meriting qualifications
Experience in the use of ion optics simulation programs such as SIMION is a merit
Experience in the COLTRIMS/3D momentum imaging technique is a merit
Experience in other spectroscopic techniques (ex. Photoelectron spectroscopy)
Experience in mechanical engineering and competence in using SolidWorks
Experience in advanced data analysis and programming (especially python- based)
Experience in using laser systems and pump-probe techniques
Terms of employment This is a full-time, fixed-term employment of a maximum of 2 years. Appointment to a post-doctoral position requires that the doctoral degree or equivalent is completed no more than three years before the last date for applications. The period of employment is determined in accordance with the agreement “Avtal om tidsbegränsadanställningsompostdoktor” (“Agreement on fixed-term employment as a post-doctoral fellow”) between Lund University, SACO-S, OFR/S and SEKO, dated 4 September 2008.
On call services may apply in the future.
MAX IV is a Swedish national large-scale research laboratory hosted by Lund University.
