Beamline Scientist Quick x-ray Absorption and Scattering (QAS) beamline

Tenure Track

The Hard X-ray Scattering & Spectroscopy (HXSS) program at Brookhaven Laboratory’s National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) offers world-class capabilities for studying complex and heterogeneous materials under in-situ and operando conditions. The program provides specialized spectroscopy, diffraction, and imaging x-ray tools, supported by computational resources for high-throughput analysis and modeling.  One of the HXSS beamlines is 7-BM (Quick x-ray Absorption and Scattering, QAS) designed to enable in-situ studies of chemical and physical transformations by using separate and combined spectroscopy (XAS) and diffraction (XRD) techniques and by coupling XAS and IR spectroscopy (DRIFTS).

Essential duties:

  • support the high-volume user research programs at the QAS beamline.
  • engage in internal and external scientific collaborations that leverage the unique capabilities of the NSLS-II.
  • be involved in developing instrumentation with an emphasis on fast, in-situ and operando X-ray spectroscopy and diffraction.
  • development of sample handling automation, design of complex operando experiments, and development of data analysis and processing protocols.
