Check out the career fair this October if interested!
The Experimental Systems Group (ESG) at the Advanced Light Source (ALS), Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory offers an immediate opportunity for a synchrotron radiation experimental scientist to work in the area of High Pressure X-ray Diffraction on Beamline 12.2.2.
The position will involve supporting a program in the application of High Pressure X-ray Diffraction to diverse problems in materials and geological sciences. The ALS has a state of the art beamline that generates a micro x-ray beam directed at samples loaded in diamond anvil cells. Sample heating by laser and resistive heating is available. X-ray absorption spectroscopy and radiograph measurements are also carried out. This position allows ample opportunities to develop a personal research program.
A non-tenure-track Research Assistant Professor position is available in the Department of Physics (http://physics.wvu.edu) at West Virginia University. The position is part of a strategic plan by the WVU condensed matter group to strengthen collaborative research and establish a “Center for Energy-Efficient Electronics at West Virginia University and Marshall University.” The center is funded by a $1.35 M West Virginia Research Challenge Grant. Currently, the center consists of four experimental (D. Lederman, A. Bristow, and M. Holcomb at WVU and T. Wilson at Marshall) and one theoretical (T. Stanescu at WVU) faculty members. This effort is complemented by an additional four new tenure-track faculty hires in condensed matter physics at WVU.
A tenure track lectureship is available in “Physics at the Life Science Interface” at the Interface of Plasmas with Biological and Medical Material (Queen's University, Belfast). This general title is designed to include those who are interested in working at the interface of plasmas with biological and medical material.
