Immediate openings for researchers with radiography background

The Extreme Light Laboratory is currently accepting applications for research associate and post-doctoral positions. We are seeking 1-2 individuals to provide leadership and assist on a federal research contract involving radiography. For this project, radiography experience is a must, but it could be from a range of academic settings.

Essential duties for any open positions include the conception, design, and execution of research to address defined problems, collaboration with other scientists and technical personnel, and communication of research progress through publications, presentations, and reports. The successful candidate will be responsible for enhancing their research credentials through publications and must be able to work independently as well as in multi-disciplinary teams. Additional responsibilities will include participation in collaborative grant proposal writing. Requirements include a Ph.D. in Physics or a related field, and a demonstrated publication track-record.

Please send your CV and research statement to Neelee Glasco . In your email, indicate when you would be available to start and provide a brief summary of your previous roles within a research team.  

Graduate Students

The Extreme Light Laboratory is well-supported with federal and other research grants and contracts which assure that our graduate students have the use of state-of-the-art research equipment and access to good computational services. As a result, our students receive full or partial support in the form of research assistantships and are supported in their travel to national and international meetings.
