Jens S. Kienitz I am pleased to welcome you to my website and would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.

Soon I will complete my PhD thesis and I am looking for new challenges for the subsequent time. With analytical thinking and just a short training period, I will be an asset to any team. I have experience in the field of nano- and structural and molecular physics. During my diploma thesis I worked with semiconductors, and due to my PhD thesis, I have a deep knowledge in high voltage, ultra-high vacuum and laser technology. Programming languages such as Matlab, Root (C ++) and Python are part of the laboratory day. Even more, in 2012 I was certified in NI LabVIEW.

I was born and raised on the north coast in the beautiful state Schleswig-Holstein. The proximity to water has influenced me a lot, which is why I am still an enthusiastic swimmer. During my abitur, I got the opportunity to write an annual work on the positioning of meteors. Eventually, this became my first scientific work.

Physics has got me in its spell and after my high school and my military service I enrolled at the University of Hamburg in physics. The big city fascinated me both then and now still.

After my pre-diploma, the wanderlust became too great and I studied for a year in Brighton on the Channel coast of England near London. The beautiful national park, where the campus of the university is located, aroused in me the running fever and invited me to do the exercise outdoors. The friendships I have made there are unforgettable.

Shortly after I returned to Hamburg, I wrote my diploma thesis in the field of nano- and structural physics: "Control of the charge carrier density in low-dimensional InAs electron systems".

Afterwards, I decided to promote a highly respected institution and became a PhD student at the Center for Free Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in the international research group Controlled Molecule Imaging (CMI) on the DESY Campus in Hamburg. Furthermore, I became a member of the Excellence Cluster The Hamburg Center for Ultrafast Imaging (CUI). In my work, I focused on the orientation of state selected molecules in mixed strong DC and laser fields. I submitted my PhD thesis in September 2016 and defended it successfully two months later.

At the moment I am going to publish my work and I look forward to challenges that await me.
