Opportunity for Beamline Scientist

BACK

The JATOBÁ beamline is dedicated to the study of a wide range of materials using the X-ray diffraction technique known as PDF, or Pair Distribution Function


The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory, part of the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), is commissioning a new Synchrotron Light Source, Sirius, one of the brightest in the world in its energy range. The beamlines under construction for the Sirius/LNLS are based on advanced technologies in various engineering fields and synchrotron light techniques. The JATOBÁ beamline is being built to produce a high-energy x-ray beam, focused on micrometric dimensions, dedicated to the study of a wide range of materials using the X-ray diffraction technique known as PDF, or Pair Distribution Function.

The candidate for this position will:

  • Develop the PDF technique using synchrotron radiation.
  • Implement specific techniques and instruments for conducting PDF experiments on the beamline, exploring the micrometric focus and the high energy of the X-ray beam.
  • Develop sample preparation procedures for X-ray diffraction, making them compatible with other related diffraction and spectroscopy techniques.
  • Develop strategies for collecting and processing PDF data.
  • Conduct scientific research within one of the strategic areas of LNLS/CNPEM.
  • Support the Sirius/LNLS user program.
