As a key player in research and innovation in Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), with its employees, is active in the domains of materials, the environment and IT.
As an RTO (Research and Technology Organisation) and with its interdisciplinary impact-driven approach, LIST contributes to the development of Luxembourg’s economy and society.
The Materials Research and Technology Department (MRT) translates cutting-edge materials research into applicable technology, with about 150 collaborators.
For this, the department cultivates close relationships and joint projects with both academic and industrial partners, and contributes to Luxembourg's and Europe's innovation agenda in Materials Research and Technology.
The Advanced Instrumentation for Ion Nano-Analytics (AINA) group of the MRT department at the LIST is renowned for developing innovative nano-
analytical techniques for materials characterization and life science applications. During the past few years we have been developing in particular a Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) add-
on system for the Helium Ion Microscope (HIM) and for a Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) as well as an Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) system that we integrated in our NanoSIMS, allowing the advantages of high spatial resolution with high sensitivity chemical information to be combined.
The research activities of the AINA group cover fundamentals, instrument development and applications.
In the framework of these R&D activities, LIST is coordinating the large scale H2020 project npSCOPE (www.npscope.eu) aiming at developing an innovative ion microscope allowing high-
resolution high-sensitivity analysis of nanoparticles. In this context, LIST is looking for an engineer who will participate in this collaborative project grouping 9 international partners including renowned instrument manufacturers, top level European research institutes and leading Universities.
The engineer will be in charge of developing dedicated software for processing and visualising data provided by the npSCOPE instrument (including mass spectrometry data, secondary electron images and transmitted ion microscopy data) as well as software for controlling the npSCOPE instrument with focus on the design of the graphical user interface.
