Post-Doctoral Position in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, SOLEIL, France

Postdoc in France

Post-Doctoral Position in Nanoscience: Synchrotron SOLEIL, a French national synchrotron facility, is seeking a motivated post-doctoral researcher to join the TEMPO beamline team as part of the European project RIANA. This 24-month position focuses on studying the electronic properties of 2D nanomaterials using photoemission spectroscopy.

Post-Doctoral Position in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

Designation: Post-Doctoral Researcher

Research Area: Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

Location: Synchrotron SOLEIL, Paris-Saclay cluster, France


  • PhD in Physics, Material Science, Physical Chemistry, or a related field.
  • Research experience in X-ray and/or electron spectroscopy.
  • Expertise in photoemission spectroscopy (XPS), angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES), and absorption spectroscopy (XAS) is highly desirable.
  • Strong background in solid state physics.
  • Knowledge of ultrahigh vacuum techniques.
  • Excellent teamwork skills.
