Scientist / Researcher (f/m/d) in Physics for Next Generation XUV Ptychography

The Helmholtz-Institute JENA (HI Jena) is a joint institution of the Friedrich-Schiller-Uni-versität Jena and the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research GmbH in Darmstadt. The institute is mainly focused on applied and fundamental research at the borderline of high-power lasers and particle accelerators.


“Ptychography 4.0” is a pilot project within the HGF incubator "Information and Data Science" and involves scientists form various disciplines at the Helmholtz Centers DESY, FZJ, GSI/HI-Jena, HMGU, HZDR, HZI and HZB. Ptychographic imaging has experienced a dramatic increase in interest during the last decade with more and more applications being demonstrated. Nevertheless, further developments are needed to turn the technique into a real-time microscopy technique suitable for forefront research as well and routine use. “Ptychography 4.0” addresses these challenges by combining expertise in microscopy with expertise in data science aiming at establishing ptychographic imaging as a routine imaging method for different imaging modalities operated by the Helmholtz Association (HGF).


For the interdisciplinary project “Ptychography 4.0” we are looking for a
