The Paul Scherrer Institute PSI is the largest research institute for natural and engineering sciences within Switzerland. We perform cutting-edge research in the fields of matter and materials, energy and environment and human health. 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 Structure and Mechanics of Advanced Materials Group is a newly formed group within the Photon Science Division performing research on structural and mechanical properties of diverse soft matter systems, including samples of biological origin, as well as of metals and alloys. We are actively developing and applying various X-ray and neutron scattering, diffraction and imaging methods working closely together with various beamlines at SLS and SINQ. For this group, we are looking for a
