HPCAT: Employment opportunitites
HPCAT Postdoctoral Associate Position in Time-resolved X-ray Probes
The combination of intense synchrotron radiation and next generation of fast (un)loading high pressure techniques has recently permitted various time resolved studies such as materials metastability, phase transition kinetics, and thermodynamic properties at various strain rates. We are seeking an exceptional postdoctoral candidate to pursue a fundamental science program that can exploit this new capability. In addition to scientific output, the successful candidate would take a lead role in extending the strain rate range together with implementing x-ray techniques and advanced detectors.
This position will be based at HPCAT at the Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory. In addition to time-resolved synchrotron probes, other static and dynamic techniques at Geophysical Laboratory will be highly encouraged.
Minimum qualifications: A PhD in physics, chemistry, earth science or a related field is required at the time of appointment.
Desired qualifications: A strong background in materials science and structural science is desirable (in particular, crystallography), and experience of both high pressure and synchrotron facilities would be considered a strong advantage.
The position is available for one year from December 1, 2013, and may be renewable for the second year. This call for applications will remain open until the position is filled.
