The National Synchrotron Light Source-II (NSLS-II) at Brookhaven National Laboratory is seeking exceptional candidates for the lead beamline scientist position for the Inner-Shell Spectroscopy (ISS) beamline. As part of the Hard X-ray Spectroscopy Program at NSLS-II, the ISS beamline is a high-flux, fast-scanning damping wiggler spectroscopy beamline, with in situ and operando instrumentation integrated in the beamline architecture and data acquisition system. The beamline is optimized for electrocatalytic and heterogeneous catalytic experiments; while an in situ Atomic Layer Deposition reactor and a 1000°C high-temperature reactor expands the program into the area of materials growth.
The ISS beamline offers world-class capabilities for studying the complex science of energy conversion and energy storage. Its high-flux, fast-scanning capability, and associated gas-handling infrastructure will open new possibilities for probing a wide range of materials of both fundamental and technological importance.
The selected candidate will supervise a group of scientific and technical staff. Responsibilities include: lead the safe operation of the state-of-the-art ISS beamline and associated laboratories; propose and manage the ISS operating budget; continue to develop new operando, in-situ, and data analysis capabilities; provide user support for the high-throughput user science program; develop an independent science program and work as member of a team to conduct experimental programs at NSLS-II with a focus on hard X-ray spectroscopy, and collaborate with NSLS-II and BNL scientists and General Users for effective and innovative use of the ISS beamline.
Required Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:
D. in physics, chemistry, or related field
At least 5 years of experience applying X-ray spectroscopy to high-impact science
Strong publication record in using the X-ray spectroscopy technique
Excellent written and oral communications skills
The ability to interact effectively in a team environment with a diverse group of scientists, engineers, technical staff, and users.
Preferred Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
Prior experience in the design, installation, commissioning and/or operation of a synchrotron radiation beamline
At least 5 years prior experience in spectroscopy data acquisition and analysis.
Demonstrated success supervising or leading scientific or technical groups or projects.
The selected candidate will be placed at the appropriate scientific level dependent upon depth and breadth of relevant knowledge and skills that he or she brings to the position, as well as the amount of relevant experience.
At Brookhaven National Laboratory we believe that a comprehensive employee benefits program is an important and meaningful part of the compensation employees receive. Our benefits program includes but is not limited to:
Swimming Pool, Weight room Tennis Courts, and many other employee perks and benefits.
Employer will assist with relocation costs.
