Context

The Advanced Instrumentation for Ion Nano-Analytics (AINA) group of the MRT department at the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) focuses on the development of correlative microscopy for high-resolution high-sensitivity nano-analytics, mostly based on ion and electron microscopy and spectrometry.           


The research activities cover fundamentals, instrument development and applications. The team comprises specialists in nanoanalytics, in charged particle optics, in ion-matter interactions and in engineering (mechanics, electronics, software) giving the AINA group the complete spectrum of know-how that is required to convert innovative ideas and concepts into prototype instruments.


Description

We are looking for a R&T Associate who is specialized in correlative workflows, including data treatment and algorithms required for such correlative approaches, with a specific focus on life science applications. The candidate will be in charge of developing 4D (3 spatial dimensions plus chemical/elemental information) nanoscale correlative microscopy methodologies and apply them to various fields in life science, but also in materials science.


The candidate will participate in several existing projects focussing on new methodologies and prototype instrumentation combining techniques such as SIMS, TEM, HIM, SEM and AFM. In addition, the incumbent will define and lead new project activities in this field, with again a specific focus on life science applications, including writing and submitting proposals for competitive funding and collaborating with industrial partners such as instrument manufacturers.


The candidate will also be in charge of disseminating, valorizing and transferring RDI results (patents, licenses, prototypes, publications, technical reports, participation in conferences).
