DESY is one of the world’s leading research centres for photon science, particle and astroparticle physics as well as accelerator physics. More than 2400 employees work at our two locations Hamburg and Zeuthen in science, technology and administration.
As part of DESY's strategy for its large scale facilities, the PETRA III storage ring, which is currently the world's brightest synchrotron radiation facility in the hard X-ray range, is planned to be upgraded to PETRA IV. This new accelerator complex will provide diffraction-limited X-ray beams with more than two orders of magnitude increase in brightness and coherence. To execute this large scale project, which is of central importance to the long term future of DESY, we are opening the position of a machine project leader.
Reporting to the Director of the M-Division the machine project leader will be responsible for:
The successful delivery of the technical design report for the project
The recruitment and build-up of the project team for machine design, construction and commissioning
The implementation and management of an extensive and complex research program to minimize risk for the project execution phase and to prepare the overall PETRA IV project
The management and coordination of the PETRA IV project upon launch of the construction phase for successful on-time and within budget delivery of the project
A Ph.D. degree in physics or engineering or equivalent experience is required
A nationally and internationally recognized expert in storage ring physics and general accelerator science with a proven record of successful project management experience
Demonstrated leadership and communication skills to manage and motivate large teams
Ability to make difficult decisions and handle complex situations involving many stakeholders
