MAX IV is a Swedish national large-scale research laboratory hosted by Lund University. It provides scientists from Sweden as well as internationally, with state-of-the-art instrumentation for research in areas such as engineering, physics, structural biology, chemistry and nanotechnology. Fully developed it will receive more than 2 000 scientists annually, conducting ground-breaking experiments in materials and life sciences using the brilliant X-ray light. As a national laboratory, MAX IV is operated in agreement with governmental regulations, and in compliance with major funders such as the Swedish Research Council (VR) and the Wallenberg Foundation. 250 people are currently employed at MAX IV Laboratory, and 16 beamlines are funded. The facility is in a ramp-up phase with 3 beamlines now receiving users and 13 more scheduled to be commissioned and built to receive users within the next few years. The facility is dimensioned for 25-28 beamlines.

Tasks
The candidate will be part of the team responsible for commissioning and operation of the soft X-ray beamline (MAXPEEM) which houses state-of-the art aberration corrected low energy electron microscope.The candidate will be responsible for coordinating and conducting practical work related to the operation of the beamline. As part of his/her tasks the candidate is also expected to help users to perform their experiments at the experimental end-station (SPELEEM microscope). 

Qualifications
The successful candidate has a PhD or equivalent in Physics or a similar field of relevance for the MAXPEEM beamline. The candidate must have demonstrated experience with as many as possible of the following areas:
