Argonne National Laboratory is a Department of Energy national laboratory with over 1,500 scientists and engineers performing world-class research aimed at solving the nation's energy, environmental and security challenges. Argonne is located 25 miles southwest of Chicago on a beautiful 1,500-acre campus.
The Synchrotron Radiation Studies group is advancing the frontier of materials science through creative use of the Nation's x-ray facilities, including the premier hard x-ray synchrotron, the Advanced Photon Source (APS), and the first hard x-ray free-electron laser, the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS). Our approach is to develop novel x-ray experimental techniques that take advantage of the unique capabilities of these x-ray sources, and to apply those techniques to obtain fundamental understanding of key topics essential for the efficient, scientific development of new materials.
In this exciting opportunity, we are seeking an assistant physicist to conduct research using synchrotron x-ray techniques to enable the creation and characterization of materials that impact future energy-related applications.
In this position, you will:
Leverage prior experience in advanced imaging techniques using coherent x-rays such as Bragg coherent diffraction imaging and ptychography to further the Division’s research interests
Interprete and model large data sets
Think and work independently and conduct research in a highly interdisciplinary environment of materials scientists, physicists, and chemists
To be considered you must have:
A Ph.D. in Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry or a related discipline with 1+ years of post-doctoral experience
Demonstrated expertise in the application of synchrotron radiation to materials science problems, particularly using coherent x-ray imaging
Extensive skill in designing and implementing high-quality experiments
Strong understanding of abstract concepts and the ability to synthesize results within the current experimental and theoretical framework
We offer a competitive salary and an excellent benefits package. For consideration, please apply via our website at: http://bit.ly/2gMu6VP.
