About the position

This is an exciting opportunity to join a diverse team of scientists and add your experience, skills, and creativity to the Spectroscopy Group and the X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) beamline at the Australian Synchrotron.

The Spectroscopy Group comprises three beamlines: XAS, Soft X-ray Spectroscopy and Terahertz/Far-IR Spectroscopy. The position is focussed on XAS with strong opportunities to engage with the other beamlines and actively contribute to the whole team as well as the wider facility.

The XAS Beamline provides collaborators and clients from science, research and industry rare opportunities to innovate through cutting-edge scientific technology. The beamline serves clients and groups across a wide range of disciplines such as human health, environment, advanced materials, catalysis, minerals, energy, and agriculture.

Our team is centred on providing expert advice, service and safe working practices to user groups and clients, and building and fostering communities and productive and impactful relationships. We seek out and realise opportunities to continually improve our systems and technical solutions to ensure safe, robust, smooth, and efficient operation of the experimental end station and beamline. Effectively working together with others is important to us, as is reaching out into the community to promote our science and research achievements, and translating them into stories that show how the work improves society and people’s lives.
