[20121125] Beamline Scientist at Diamond Light Source, UK

Beamline Scientist/Senior Beamline Scientist–Beamline I15 DIA0787/TH


Diamond Light Source is the UK’s national synchrotron science facility. Located at Harwell Science &
Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire, we enable world-leading research across a wide range of scientific disciplines and industrial applications.

Full time/permanent Circa £33k or Circa £42k for appointment at the senior level
We require a Beamline Scientist for I15, the Extreme Condition Beamline. I15 is based on a wiggler insertion
device which delivers x-rays in the energy range from 20 to 80 keV. Two experimental stations are available
to accommodate single-crystal and powder diffraction experiments with diamond-anvil cells at ambient
temperature or in various temperature chambers, as well as other ambient pressure related sample environments.
Laser heating is under development and large-volume press experiments are planned for the future. A wide
range of on- and off-line laser facilities are available to complement the diffraction techniques at high pressure. Candidates will have the appropriate qualifications and relevant synchrotron research experience. Knowledge of diffraction techniques under extreme pressure conditions and beamline instrumentation are essential for this role.
Preference will be given to candidates with laser heating or large-volume press experience.
