Lund University, MAX IV, Controls & IT
Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.
The MAX IV Controls and IT team (KITS) deliver solutions to the whole MAX IV organisation in the areas of control system hardware, controls software applications, infrastructure and networking, information management and scientific software. This is a dynamic and highly challenging environment and requires close collaboration with the staff in order to understand the needs and be effective in forming solutions. We are around 50 people in total who work in 5 domains in a well organised and agile way. We hold values of lean management, knowledge spread, user autonomy, continuous improvement and flexibility as guiding principles for our work.
As a member of a forming team you will participate in developing and supporting scientific software projects for data analysis from a new generation light sources. You will challenge high data rates and large data volumes coming from them. Beside other team members you will work closely together with beamline scientists, MAX IV users, industry, HPC experts and with MAX IV partners from the Nordic academia and other large scale facilities.
In supporting data analysis from a wide range of scattering techniques you will learn new methods and master applications of the scientific software. You may also strengthen your competence in project management when coordinating software projects. As a member of the large KITS team you will develop your agile and team work skills and as a part of MAX IV you will cultivate the MAX IV scientific World.
You are not obliged to develop your own research program but you are strongly encouraged to keep and develop your project, collaborations and participate in experiments in MAX IV or other facilities in order to connect software experts and scientists.
