312365 BIO – Assistant Physicist

The Molecular Environmental Science Group in the Biosciences Division  
at Argonne National Laboratory has an immediate opening for an  
Assistant Physicist.  This position is responsible for conducting  
research in environmental science by using synchrotron-based X-ray  
techniques. Work includes construction and operation of the MRCAT/ 
EnviroCAT bending magnet and insertion device beam lines at sector 10  
at the Advanced Photon Source (APS), X-ray absorption studies, X-ray  
scattering, and X-ray microprobe techniques to gain a microscopic  
understanding of the fundamental chemical and physical processes that  
govern the outcome of macroscopic processes in the environment.  
Assists Molecular Environmental Science general users of the APS  
during the experiments at the APS. Also assists Molecular  
Environmental Science Group Leader to develop a national users` group  
for applying synchrotron-based techniques to problems in  
environmental science.

Considerable knowledge of experimental X-ray absorption spectroscopy,  
including extended X-ray absorption fine-structure spectroscopy  
(EXAFS), X-ray near-edge spectroscopy (XANES) is required.  
Considerable skill in the operation of experimental equipment  
necessary for these and analysis and interpretation of these  
experiments is required. Good knowledge of X-ray diffraction and  
imaging techniques and the associated instrumentation. Good knowledge  
of potential applications of X-ray techniques to the outstanding  
problems in environmental science. These levels of knowledge and  
skills are typically achieved by attainment of a Ph.D. in Physics or  
a related discipline and 2-4 years of Postdoctoral experience  
applying synchrotron-based X-ray techniques to problems in  
environmental science. Ph.D. and 0-1 year experience/equivalent  
Master's Degree and 2-3 years of experience/equivalent Bachelor's  
Degree and 6-8 years experience/equivalent.

Although a staff level research scientist position is available,  
outstanding applicants at the postdoctoral level will also be  

Interested candidates should send a detailed CV, along with a list of  
publications, and the names and addresses of three references through  
the Argonne web site at http://www.anl.gov/jobs for requisition  
number 312365 BIO.  Argonne is a U.S. Department of Energy laboratory  
managed by UChicago Argonne, LLC.

Argonne is an equal opportunity employer, and we value diversity in  
our workforce.
