Postdoc, Rheo-SAXS, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden
Project description An outstanding postdoctoral researcher is sought for the development of a new rheometer system to be integrated as a state-of-the-art Rheo-SAXS sample environment at the MAX IV Laboratory, Lund, Sweden. MAX IV Laboratory is a Swedish national laboratory providing scientists from academia and industry with the brightest X-rays available in the world. Thus, the ambition is to have a sample environment with an international appeal through unique testing possibilities, as well as to support Swedish academic and industrial strengths. At the end of the developmental project, the goal is to have the rheometer sample environment available for external users at ForMAX and CoSAXS beamlines, to start with. The project is a cooperation between Chalmers and MAX IV and includes personnel across departments/beamlines from both locations. Position summary Full-time temporary employment.
