Are you an experimentalist interested in research in high magnetic fields, and would you like to collaborate with many visiting international colleagues? And does developing technology and instrumentation while supporting and developing complex experiments excite you? Then join our HFML-FELIX team as a Research Officer at our international user facility with the highest DC magnetic fields available for research in Europe and worldwide.

We are looking for colleagues to develop and maintain a suite of experimental platforms and to work alongside internal and external users performing state-of-the-art experiments in high magnetic fields. Your primary role in our organisation comprises two main activities: performing user support for our international research programme and developing new and existing experimental platforms.

You will take part in the scientific support of the HFML-FELIX international user programme, by advising the in-house and visiting scientists on the (technical) execution of their research plans. You will work independently as well as together with other scientists on different scientifically and technically challenging projects. To do so, you will develop in-depth knowledge of our scientific techniques. This part of the role also includes collaboration on publications and progress reports of the in-house and visiting scientists, part of which is the collection, analysis and interpretation of measurement data to advance the instrumentation, as well as the research itself. You will be expected to develop a coordinating role within the user programme.

Depending on your expertise and interest, you will be encouraged to develop new and existing experimental platforms, engage in own research activities with those platforms, and coordinate instrumentational developments and innovations to keep HFML-FELIX at the forefront of the international scientific community of high-magnetic field laboratories.

We have several positions available.
