A position as PhD student in experimental physics within the field of coherent X-ray microscopy is available at the Department of Physics, NTNU. Starting date will be early fall 2020.
We are searching for a creative, skilled and ambitious candidate for our activities on coherent X-ray microscopies and their applications for imaging nanostructured materials. The candidate will work in an international team of several principal investigators, PhD students, postdocs and master students. External collaboration with other academic research groups and industry actors is an important part for these positions. The ICONIC project aims to is to utilize recent breakthroughs in coherent X-ray diffraction imaging (CXDI) to image biomineralisation mechanism by studying the progression from the earliest nucleation events to the final mineral phases. The project will be implemented by development of in-situ and liquid-phase CXDI in combination with time resolved small-angle (SAXS) and wide-angle X-ray scattering (WAXS). The project will involve development of crystallization protocols suitable for in-situ CXDI experiments. ICONIC is collaboration between NTNU, Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) in Belgium, ESRF in France, University of Oslo in Norway and the University of Le Mans in France.
