Post Doctoral Research Associate, I18

Diamond Light Source - Physical Science

3 year fixed-term contract.

I18 is a microfocus spectroscopy beamline, producing a micron scale X-ray beam over the energy range 2.05 to 20.6 keV. It performs 2 and 3 D imaging using X-ray fluorescence, X-ray absorption spectroscopy, and X-ray diffraction techniques. It has recently developed novel set-ups for operando catalysis studies e.g. DOI:10.1126/sciadv.1602838.

The role will  primarily involve developing a new set-up for the micro-X-ray study of the kinetics of particle formation and reactions using microfluidics, maintaining and developing the current 3D catalysis set-ups, and using these set-up to conduct a research programme at the beamline.

To lead in the development of new sample environments for using microfluidics to look at particle formation kinetics and reactions; maintaining and improving existing sample environments for operando catalysis; assisting in the operation of the beamline; keeping abreast of new experimental trends; conduct own research related to particle formation and catalysis.
