|#321422||Structural Science (SRS) Group, Assistant Chemist-Term
Designs, develops and conducts research programs related to structural studies of materials using powder diffraction, and/or related methods such as pair-distribution-function (PDF) analysis. Performs collaborative research with beamline users and internal and external research scientists. Supports user experiments in the area of powder diffraction, principally at 17-BM and 11-BM, but also at other beamlines in the Structural Sciences group as needed. Recruits new external research groups to utilize the beamlines in the Structural Sciences group.
|#321096||Surface Scattering & Microdiffraction (SSM) Group, Physicist
Leads research program and beamline instrumentation development for liquid surface scattering (LSS) experiments at the Advanced Photon Source (APS). Develops the fixed-energy LSS beamline at 28-ID as part of the APS Upgrade Project in addition to an instrument to be located at a tunable-energy x-ray beamline. Development includes methodologies for data collection and advanced instrumentation in collaboration with other APS staff. Grows the user community in LSS and, subsequent to development, supports, with the assistance of a second beamline scientist, LSS research activities at 28-ID.
|#321491||Time Resolved Research (TRR) Group|
Advisor - Suresh Narayanan
This Postdoctoral Appointee will work with members of the Time Resolved Research group at the Advanced Photon Source (APS) and the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) to perform innovative research on probing nanoscale dynamics in shear thickening complex fluids using small angle coherent x-ray scattering. The scope of the research project includes the synthesis of novel nanoparticle dispersion in complex fluids and carrying out bulk rheological measurements using the facilities at the CNM and use the x-ray photon correlation spectroscopy beamline at the APS to study and correlate the dynamic properties with the rheological characteristics. The candidate is responsible for conceiving, planning and implementing the scientific research, and for reporting relevant results in an appropriate form.
