The European Synchrotron, the ESRF, is an international research centre based in Grenoble, France.

Through its innovative engineering, pioneering scientific vision and a strong commitment from its 700 staff members, the ESRF is recognised as one of the top research facilities worldwide. Its particle accelerator produces intense X-ray beams that are used by thousands of scientists each year for experiments in diverse fields such as biology, medicine, environmental sciences, cultural heritage, materials science, and physics.

Supported by 21 countries, the ESRF is an equal opportunity employer and encourages diversity.

Subject: Elastic and plastic properties of iron alloys at extreme conditions

You will join the team of the Nuclear Resonance Scattering (ID14) beamline composed of 7 people and perform the research within the ERC-funded project LECOR (Light Elements in the Core). The project is aimed to refine compositional models of the Earth's inner core, particularly the nature of its light elements. The candidate will conduct experiments to determine the elastic and plastic properties of various iron-bearing alloys and compounds at conditions of the deep Earth's interior. Experiments at high-pressure-temperature conditions will be performed at ID14 and also at other beamlines specializing in the experiments under extreme conditions.
