Position: Doctoral candidate or a scientist, preferably with a doctorate specializing in physics/chemistry in the field of spectroscopy
Institution: Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt
Location: Braunschweig, Niedersachsen, Germany
Duties: The scientific implementation of a third-party-funded EMPIR project on the quantitative gas analysis of mixtures containing nitrogen oxide and other impurities by means of FT spectroscopy and other analytical techniques; The metrological evaluation and use of spectrometer components such as multipass cells, pressure and temperature measurements, as well as the further development and application of FT spectrometric measuring routines for measuring nitrogen oxides (NO 2, NO, HNO3, etc.) and other gas components; Adapting or automating analysis procedures based on various software environments (Opus, Phyton, Fortran, Labview, etc.); Analytical and preparative metrology for the traceability of spectroscopic measurands, e.g. from FT spectroscopy on nitrogen oxides; Determining and tracing molecular spectroscopic parameters (e.g. line width, pressure broadening, pressure shift and the temperature dependence of these parameters); The development, investigation, improvement and application of FT spectroscopic gas analysis procedures for quantifying other gas species; Carrying out comparison measurements in cooperation with project partners; Managing technical work packages in projects financed by third parties; Coordination work with international project partners; Participating in quality management and laboratory safety
Requirements: You have completed your university studies in physics or chemistry (Masters/German "Diplom" ) with a "very good" degree; a doctorate would be of advantage; You have experience of experiments in the field of molecule spectroscopy in the MIR/NIR range and high-resolution gas spectroscopy, preferably with Fourier-Transform spectrometers (Bruker IFS125HR, Opus) and in quantitative spectroscopy; You have knowledge in the field of gas analysis, handling of gases and vacuum technology, especially for nitrogen oxides and other reactive gases; You have programming skills (OPUS/Python/LabView/Fortran); You have prior knowledge of: o quantitative gas analysis, gas metrology; o the metrological aspects of spectroscopy; o other high-resolution spectroscopy techniques; o the determination of spectral parameters; o measurement uncertainty analysis (according to GUM); Experience of the following would be of advantage: o working on scientific tasks within projects (e.g. EMPIR); o cooperating and coordinating tasks in international projects; o project management, ideally in EMPIR projects; o raising funds for new projects and reporting on ongoing projects; You have excellent communication skills and are a team player; You have a very good command of spoken and written English; You are willing to go on frequent business trips within Germany and abroad, for longer time periods, if necessary
   
Text: doctoral candidate or a scientist, preferably with a doctorate specializing in physics / chemistry in the field of spectroscopy (20-206-3) Wednesday, 5. February 2020 The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) is the National Metrology Institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with scientific and technical service tasks. It furthers progress and reliability in metrology for society, the economy and science. Department 3.4 "Analytical Chemistry of the Gas Phase" of Division 3 is looking for a doctoral candidate or a scientist, preferably with a doctorate specializing in physics / chemistry in the field of spectroscopy to join us as soon as possible.
