Please see the job posting for an immediate Postdoctoral Position at SSRL for 
in-situ Catalysis X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy

Postdoctoral Position at SSRL for in-situ Catalysis X-ray Absorption 
Spectroscopy The Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL), a 
Directorate of the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Stanford University, 
and a national research facility, seeks a Ph.D. Postdoctoral Scholar. This 2-3 
year postdoctoral position will involve using in-situ/in-operando 
synchrotron-based methods, primarily x-ray absorption spectroscopy, to study 
all aspects of catalysis. The candidate will join a new group at SSRL, under 
the guidance of Simon Bare, whose mission is to develop a world-class 
synchrotron catalyst characterization facility. The candidate will work on 
beamline setup and data collection at SSRL, perform in-situ XAS experiments, 
and analyze the XAFS data. The candidate will also give instruction on data 
analysis to graduate students. The candidate will interact with visiting and 
staff scientists from SUNCAT and other leading research groups, postdoctoral 
fellows, and students on all aspects of the synchrotron-mediated research; 
provide guidance to and foster the development of graduate and undergraduate 
students; publish experimental results in scientific journals and present 
results at scientific meetings; and maintain a safe working environment in the 
laboratory. Qualifications: * Ph.D. in physics, chemistry, materials sciences 
or related fields. * Experience with all aspects of synchrotron X-ray 
absorption spectroscopy is a must, including demonstrated ability in data 
analysis and modeling of XAFS data using Athena/Artemis. * Experience with 
synthesis, testing or characterization of catalysts, desired. * A solid 
background in materials/catalyst characterization and experience with in-situ 
cell design and development strongly preferred. * Willingness to learn and 
bridge knowledge/experience gaps. * Ability to work independently and in a team 
environment. * Ability to work and communicate effectively with a diverse 
population; good interpersonal skills are essential. * Effective written and 
verbal communication skills.
