Radio-frequency engineer or physicist for development of state-of-the- art accelerator beam diagnostics

Limited: 3 years | Starting date: earliest possible | ID: MMA092/2020 | Deadline: open | Full-time/Part-time

DESY, with its more than 2700 employees at its two locations in Hamburg and Zeuthen, is one of the world's leading research centres. Its research focuses on decoding the structure and function of matter, from the smallest particles of the universe to the building blocks of life. In this way, DESY contributes to solving the major questions and urgent challenges facing science, society and industry. With its ultramodern research infrastructure, its interdisciplinary research platforms and its international networks, DESY offers a highly attractive working environment in the fields of science, technology and administration as well as for the education of highly qualified young scientists.

The MSK Group develops, builds and operates complex control, synchronization and feedback systems for beam control and beam diagnostics for the accelerators of FLASH, PETRA III and the European XFEL. This advertised project aims to develop and build the next generation of Beam Arrival Monitors, which are high bandwidth radio frequency and electro-optical assemblies that measure the electron bunch timing within the accelerator with a precision on the femtosecond scale.

About your role:

  • Component research and quality assessment of signal detectors
  • Full system integration of the measurement device, including the control electronics
  • Final device characterization in terms of signal noise, stability and overall achievable precision

Good reasons to join:
