Postdoctoral Fellow in Lensless EUV Imaging

The Paul Scherrer Institute PSI is the largest research institute for natural and engineering sciences within Switzerland. We perform cutting-edge research in the fields of matter and materials, energy and environment and human health. By performing fundamental and applied research, we work on sustainable solutions for major challenges facing society, science and economy. PSI is committed to the training of future generations. Therefore about one quarter of our staff are post-docs, post-graduates or apprentices. Altogether PSI employs 2100 people.

The Swiss Light Source (SLS) at the Paul Scherrer Institute is a third-generation synchrotron light source, offering unique research opportunities to academic research teams as well as industrial research groups. It hosts several laboratories where world-leading research is conducted in an interdisciplinary and stimulating environment with excellent infrastructure.
We develop new concepts of coherent imaging techniques in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) range and explore their applications for industrial research. To strengthen our team, we are looking for
