Postdoctoral Position In Coherent Soft X-ray Scattering Studies of Complex Magnetic Materials University of Oregon and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
The University of Oregon and the Advanced Light Source seek a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join a small, world-class team pursuing coherent soft x-ray diffractive imaging and correlation spectroscopy measurements of complex oxide and magnetic materials. The successful candidate will be stationed at the ALS at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, working closely with a team lead by Prof. Steve Kevan from the University of Oregon and ALS Staff Scientist Sujoy Roy. A PhD in physics or closely related field within the last couple of years is required. Familiarity with magnetic scattering or other synchrotron radiation research is advantageous. Ability to formulate and use advanced analysis techniques using computational methods is desired. Key responsibilities include developing experimental and computational methods for coherent x-ray science that include but are not limited to coherent x-ray scattering and imaging, and communicating results via conference presentations and publications in refereed journals. Demonstrated commitment to working effectively with faculty, staff and students from diverse backgrounds is expected.
This is a full-time position, with support shared by the University of Oregon and the ALS. The initial term is for one year starting in summer or fall of 2012 with renewal for 1-2 years possible thereafter. Candidates should submit an application letter and a curriculum vitae to academicjobsonline.com, and should arrange to have three letters of recommendation submitted to the same site. Review of applications will begin on August 1, 2012 but applications will be accepted until the position is filled. The University of Oregon is an equal opportunity, affirmative action institution committed to cultural diversity and compliance with the ADA.
