Scientific / postdoctoral posts
Scientific Researcher/PostDoctoral Fellow (m/f) for Laser Physics or Laserengineer (m/f)
A member of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers, the HZDR employs about 1,100 people. The Center's focus is on interdisciplinary research in the areas energy, health, and matter.
The Institute of Radiation Physics conducts research for states of matter under extreme conditions and in very small dimensions.
The Institute invites applications as Scientific Researcher/PostDoctoral Fellow (m/f) for Laser Physics or Laserengineer (m/f).
The position will be available at the earliest possible time. The employment contract is initially limited to two years.
