Research Associate in X-ray technology
Are you interested in working in a young and interdisciplinary team with international projects at the interface between industry and research?
Then we have just the job for you!
You will be responsible for the »reconstruction of volumetric images« subproject within the publicly funded »BM18« project. BM18 is a new (X-ray) beamline that is being constructed at the European Synchrotron ESRF in Grenoble, France, in collaboration with Fraunhofer IIS. The beamline will be operated jointly with the ESRF with the aim of becoming the world’s highest standard for industrial computed tomography (CT). Building on many years of preliminary work, you will develop highly optimized algorithms for the reconstruction of large-scale volumetric images (2–10 TB/scan). You will work close to the interfaces with the measuring system (detector) and the mass memory of the ESRF.
You will be in active contact with colleagues in France (ESRF) and Fürth (EZRT, detector development), meeting for joint pitches and maintaining a regular reporting system. As part of the project, you will work closely with PhD students at the Chair of X-ray Microscopy (LRM) at Julius-Maximilians-Universität in Würzburg and at the Chair of Mathematics/Image Processing at the University of Passau, where work on relevant subprojects is underway.
A university degree (in engineering or science) and a willingness to travel and take part in international collaborations
Sound knowledge of programming / image processing, in particular the ability to work with C, Python and OpenCL, and the ability to structure topics clearly, present them in a comprehensive fashion and implement them effectively
Excellent German and English (or French), knowledge in X-ray imaging, especially computed tomography
Ideally, you will have experience in software development for scientific research and with agile development teams
What we offer:
Fraunhofer IIS offers an immensely attractive working environment in a highly innovative key sector. We can offer you varied and challenging work that revolves around cutting-edge science and technology.
Be part of a committed team where you can contribute your own ideas and have room to explore your creativity. Regular training opportunities, the best equipment and a good work-life balance thanks to flexible working hours and support offers are a given.
The X-ray imaging group develops algorithms and methods for X-ray imaging as well as devices, primarily CT scanners, for the characterization of materials using phase contrast, scattering and X-ray microscopy.
The position is initially limited to two years. Appointment, remuneration and social security benefits based on the public-sector collective wage agreement (TVöD).
In case of identical qualifications preference will be given to severely disabled candidates.
We would like to point out that the chosen job title also includes the third gender.
The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft emphasises gender-independent professional equality.
