Postdoctoral Associate at CHESS

The Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) at Cornell University is completing a major upgrade of its facilities and is seeking a Postdoctoral Associate interested in using x-ray spectroscopy to study biology, chemistry, materials science, and catalysis. A PhD in physics, chemistry, biophysics, or comparable fields is required, and experience using x-ray absorption / emission spectroscopy and advanced instrumentation at synchrotron lightsource facilities is strongly preferred. Successful candidates will be expected to work both collaboratively and independently toward developing beamline capabilities—including methods for sample delivery and data processing / analysis. This position is sponsored by the NSF-PREM Center for Interfacial Electrochemistry of Energy Materials (CiE2M), a collaboration between CHESS and University of Puerto Rico Río Piedras, Universidad Metropolitana, and Universidad del Turabo; post-doctoral duties will include assisting PREM users in designing and conducting x-ray experiments.

Employer Info:

Located on an Ivy League university campus in picturesque upstate New York, CHESS serves a world-wide community of materials researchers, biologists, chemists, physicists, and engineers. It is a National Science Foundation-supported research center dedicated to novel studies in the materials, biological, and engineering sciences and to developing novel x-ray technology and has a strong service and team-oriented environment.

Application Guidelines:

The initial appointment will be for one year, with the expectation of renewal on a yearly basis with satisfactory performance and funding availability for an additional two years. Applications should be submitted at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/12970 and should include a cover letter, a CV, a list of publications, a detailed summary of research experience and interests. Applicants must arrange to have at least three letters of recommendation uploaded, as per instructions on the academicjobsonline website. For information about the position, contact Dr. Chris Pollock at cjp227@cornell.edu.

Postdoctoral Associate Experimental Particle Physics

The Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based Sciences and Education (CLASSE) at Cornell University has an opening for a Postdoctoral Associate to work on the CMS experiment at the LHC. The Cornell CMS group has a broad involvement in many aspects of the experiment, from data analysis to detector operations and HL-LHC detector upgrades. The successful candidate is expected to engage actively in analysis of CMS data and will have considerable freedom in developing this program. We are also particularly interested in strengthening the group working the CMS Track Trigger for the HL-LHC upgrades. Candidates should have a strong record of accomplishment in data analysis and experience or interest in trigger electronics. This position could be based either at CERN or in Ithaca, though regular presence at CERN will be required for the trigger development.

A PhD in experimental high energy physics is required. Appointments are nominally for one year with the possibility of renewal up to five years total, subject to mutual satisfaction and the availability of funds under our NSF grant.

Application Guidelines:

Applications should be submitted at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/13066 and should include a CV, a list of publications, a statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation. Complete applications will be considered immediately. For information about the position, contact Prof. Anders Ryd at Anders.Ryd@cornell.edu.
