Non Crystalline Diffraction Group

Diamond Light Source, Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Oxfordshire

Diamond Light Source is a new synchrotron and a leading scientific facility of its type in the world. Located on the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in South Oxfordshire, we will host facilities supporting cutting edge research in all fields of science.

We are looking to recruit a Post Doctoral Research Associate; the position will be based on the Non Crystalline Diffraction beamline, I22, which began user operations in 2007.

You should have a strong interest in the use of SAXS and/or GISAXS for studies of contemporary topics in Materials Science and will work closely with the principle beamline scientist on several projects, mainly based on beamline I22, including the application of GISAXS developments to a range of materials problems. The position will also involve development of the facility in areas that are relevant to the in-house research themes, requiring skills in instrumentation, mathematics and computing.

Beamline I22 (Non Crystalline Diffraction) is a high-flux SAXS/WAXS facility that is optimised for both biological and materials science, in the 3.7-20 keV energy range. It is equipped with a highly flexible end station and sample platform, capable of carrying the wide variety of science applications seen on I22. The beamline performs SAXS, SAXS/WAXS, ASAXS, GISAXS and microfocus applications supported by a wide range of x-ray detector systems.

Working with the I22 beamline team in the following areas:

*	Carrying out experiments, analysing data and publication of results;
*	Keeping up with latest results and research directions internationally;
*	Developing experimental and data analysis techniques and implementing them on the beamline;
*	Jython scripting for data acquisition;
*	Occasional support of the research projects of the users, who will come from a diverse scientific background.
