Postdoctoral position at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)

News del 12/06/2013

It is now available a postdoctoral position, one year renewable to up to three years, at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), in collaboration with the Paul-Scherrer-Institute (PSI) and other partners. The position is linked to a newly launched project for the applications of advanced x-ray imaging – with and without synchrotron sources – to the analysis of ancient documents.

The ideal candidate should have a background in synchrotron radiation research, preferably in imaging techniques. He/she should also have a genuine interest in the efforts to preserve the cultural and historical patrimony with innovative techniques, perhaps leading to new industrial activities.

Tests will be conducted at different places in the world; therefore the candidate must be ready to travel extensively. Since the collaboration involves Italian institutions, a working knowledge of Italian is desirable but not required. Salary and fringe benefits are internationally competitive. Women candidates are particularly welcome.
