In the framework of the new SBO project “MoCCHa-CT” we have a vacant position for a post-doctoral researcher within the Pore-scale Processes in Geomaterials Research group (PProGRess-UGent), member of the UGent expertise Centre for X-ray Tomography (www.ugct.ugent.be).
In the scope of this project, one of the existing high-resolution CT scanners of UGCT will be upgraded by a modular X-ray grating interferometer to allow for X-ray phase contrast and dark-field imaging. As a post-doctoral researcher, you will be responsible for the design, installation and commissioning of this system. For the installation, you will receive support of the mechanical workshop available at the campus.
Furthermore, you will be responsible for the acquisition of initial data with this system and training of the PhD students and the UGCT operator. For comparative tests, measurements at ETH Zürich are foreseen.
