Be ambitious. Be pioneering. Be Boulder.
What We Require
A Ph.D. in a relevant discipline.
What You Will Need
Experience with synchrotron based X-ray scattering techniques such as small-angle scattering, X-ray reflectivity and diffraction. Strong knowledge of scientific cell design with good skills in CAD; experience with constructing multiple cells for X-ray scattering research.
What We Would Like You To Have
A strong background in various synchrotron based X-ray scattering and modeling techniques, such as small-angle scattering, total scattering and x-ray reflectivity is required. Additionally, a background in electrochemical analysis at interfaces, i.e. electric impedance spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry is vital for the role. To construct the cells needed to conduct the research, strong design capabilities using CAD software are desired.
