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 e-Instrumentation Group develops diagnostics and devices for the setup, monitoring, and ease of use of the electron facilities. One such device, developed through an effort with other scientists is a spectrometer for tender X-Rays. We are looking to develop this device further.

It could also include a simplified calibration procedure and will ideally involve working with the spectrometer itself, if beam time will become available.

  • Interest in developing new instruments and measurement methods
  • You are open-minded, communicative and enjoy working in an international team
