Research Scientist at the High Pressure Synergetic Consortium (HPSynC) at the Advanced Photon Source

The High Pressure Synergetic Consortium (HPSynC) invites applications for one research scientist position at the Advanced Photon Source (APS), Argonne National Laboratory, USA. The HPSynC mission is to develop high-challenge, high return, novel high pressure synchrotron radiation science and technology. Responsibilities of the HPSynC research scientist include, but are not limited to, designing world leading high pressure scientific goals, developing and integrating novel high-pressure synchrotron techniques, working closely with staff scientists of APS dedicated beamlines, designing, testing, and implementing instrumentations, managing support laboratories, assisting users, and conducting original research.

Minimum qualifications:
· Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in physics, chemistry, materials science, earth science, engineering, or a related field.
· This position requires a minimum of two-year work experience after Ph.D. at synchrotron beamlines and/or high-pressure laboratories and outstanding R & D record.

Desired qualifications:
· Expertise in high-pressure apparatus, crystallography, nanotechnology, xray diffraction, x-ray spectroscopy, x-ray imaging, x-ray optics, instrument design, electronics, and/or software development for data acquisition and analysis is desirable.
