Hasselt University seeks a highly qualified materials scientist with proven international expertise in photoelectron spectroscopy to join the faculty of science and the capacity group of physics of Hasselt University. As new academic member you will build your independent group and will be engaged in research focusing strongly on (buried) layers and interfaces in advanced materials-based multilayer structures as present in, e.g., state-of-the-art optoelectronic, nano-electronic, or energy storage-related systems. The research program is in line with the research objectives of Hasselt University and in particular those of the institute IMO-IMOMEC, where you will become a staff member. As a member of the capacity group physics, you will contribute to education in Bachelor and Master years.
You will make a significant contribution to the educational activities within the Bachelor of Physics program, as well as in the recently established two-year Master in Materiomics. In the latter, you are expected to coordinate courses and develop lecture material in the energy and health pillars of the curriculum. You will further supervise internships and thesis projects and you will mentor students. Innovation in education is expected, aligned with the current educational concepts of the Faculty of Sciences and Hasselt University. You will train PhD researchers and launch project proposals to establish their funding.
You will initiate and carry out innovative research, widening current activities of the capacity group in the characterization of new materials for photonics, energy, healthcare and quantum applications . You are an expert in electron spectroscopy, in particular using hard X-rays to excite photoelectrons (HAXPES) in which profound expertise is essential. In this field, you are expected to maintain and extend the current HAXPES setup and launch national and international projects, while building strong links to both, international but also local research groups.
- You promote the social relevance of research and education within the framework of the civic mission of Hasselt University.
- You show organizational commitment and contribute to the objectives of the department, the institute and the faculty.
You can only apply online up to and including 13 June 2023.
The selection procedure consists of a preselection based on application file, an introductory interview, a in-depth interview (with assignment) and an assessment center. If required, a selection exam can be held after preselection.
During the selection interview, a short trial lesson (20 min) is requested, as well as your scientific accomplishments (5 min) and research vision (15 min).
