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.
Beamline Scientist/Senior Beamline Scientist (DIA0749/TH)
Salary: Circa £33k and Circa £42k for appointment at the senior level
Term: Full time/permanent
The imaging and coherence beamline I13 has been operational since October 2011. The scientific applications for the two independently operating beamline branches relate to imaging in real (X-ray microscopy; absorption, phase contrast and ultrafast tomography) and reciprocal space (coherent X-ray diffraction imaging). The current post will be centred on the Diamond-Manchester imaging branchline, applying it to study micro – and nano-structured materials from different scientific fields such as biology, materials and earth science in the energy range of 6-30keV.
We require a Scientist/Senior Scientist with experience in synchrotron based imaging and tomography. Candidates with experience in neighbouring fields such as electron microscopy, neutron imaging or similar are welcome.
The successful candidate will be involved in promoting the beamline’s scientific profile. You will be highly motivated, able to work independently with experience of managing staff.
Manchester University are co-funders of the beamline and this appointment. Manchester have co-located academics and PDRA’s both at Diamond and at their co-located X-ray Facility (MXIF) to stimulate interaction, providing a unique opportunity to undertake long term collaborative work to jointly develop applications, techniques and undertake research projects with academia.
