Leadership of the future Photon Science Department consists of the three laboratories for synchrotron radiation dedicated to research on macromolecules and bioimaging (LSB), condensed matter and materials (LSC) and catalysis and sustainable chemistry (LSK). These laboratories operate 18 beamlines at the Swiss Light Source (SLS). They support and accompany research carried out by external users as well as they perform their own “in-house” research. The research focus of the laboratory for micro- and nanotechnology (LMN) is on nanoscience and basic research on properties of correlated nanostructures on surfaces. The LMN develops new experimental methods and turns the knowledge into nanofabrication processes. After the commissioning of the SwissFEL facility foreseen in 2016, the SwissFEL photon science facilities will be integrated into the new photon science department.Through your scientific leadership and organizational skills you will promote and provide visions toward a world-class experimental program aiming at supporting both internal researchers and thousands of external users. As the Head of the Photon Science Department you will be member of the PSI board of directors. A joint professor appointment at one of the two ETH-schools can be envisaged. You are an internationally renowned scientist in a field related to materials science, energy and environment or biology. You have extensive experience in the use of synchrotron and/or FEL radiation for cutting-edge research, along with proven leadership, management and administrative skills.
