Job Description
  Basic Purpose
  To perform theoretical research on X-ray spectroscopy on systems under extreme conditions and materials away from equilibrium. Special emphasis will lie on the interpretation of spectroscopy on transition-metal compounds, such as resonant (inelastic) x-ray scattering, x-ray absorption, and photoemission often in a pump-probe configuration where the pump can be in the optical or terahertz regime. This work will be done in collaboration with experimentalists working at the APS and will involve a combination of analytical and numerical work.
  Knowledge, Skills and Experience
Knowledge and skill of numerical simulation techniques related to materials science. Coding and analytical skills to develop new methodologies to understand x-ray scattering and spectroscopy on a wide variety of materials.
Knowledge of x-ray scattering and spectroscopic techniques. Ability to publish in technical journals.
  Minimum Education/Experience Requirements
Years Since Ph.D. -- 0-1, 1-2, 2-3
