X-ray Science Division of Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) is offering a Postdoctoral position to conduct research on x-ray cavities of cavity-based x-ray free-electron lasers (CB-XFELs). CB-XFELs are future fully coherent hard x-ray sources of extreme spectral brightness. Your work will be focused on computer simulations of x-ray cavities; development and tests of x-ray-cavity optical components, x-ray monitors, cavity alignment procedures, and eventually on cavity tests. The R&D will be performed in a framework of a joint ANL-SLAC (SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory) project.
Knowledge, Skills and Experience:
Knowledge of Linux operating system, LaTeX document preparation system, GLE or other advanced graphical tools, Python or other programming languages is desired.
