X-ray Science Division of Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) is offering a Postdoctoral position to conduct research on x-ray cavities of cavity-based x-ray free-electron lasers (CB-XFELs). CB-XFELs are future fully coherent hard x-ray sources of extreme spectral brightness. Your work will be focused on computer simulations of x-ray cavities; development and tests of x-ray-cavity optical components, x-ray monitors, cavity alignment procedures, and eventually on cavity tests. The R&D will be performed in a framework of a joint ANL-SLAC (SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory) project.
Knowledge, Skills and Experience:
Ph.D. in physics with solid knowledge in optics (including x-ray optics).
Considerable skills in experimental physics and experience of working with complex optical systems are required.
Competence in using complex software and ability to develop new software tools is essential.
Experience of working at synchrotron radiation or XFEL facilities.
Understanding of abstract physical concepts and the ability to synthesize experimental results into a proper theoretical framework.
Good written and oral communication skills for writing scientific papers and presenting research results at scientific meetings are important.
Knowledge of Linux operating system, LaTeX document preparation system, GLE or other advanced graphical tools, Python or other programming languages is desired.
