Ultrafast X-ray Science Theory Postdoc Position at Argonne National Laboratory, Illinois, USA

An opening for a theoretical postdoc is available in the Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (AMOP) Group at Argonne National Laboratory. The successful candidate will develop theoretical models and high-performance computing codes for studying x-ray induced ultrafast electron, nuclear and relaxation dynamics in gas and condensed phase systems or advanced structural/dynamics imaging concepts using first- and higher-order x-ray coherence and collective phenomena. These theory projects are closely connected with the experimental efforts of the AMOP group, as well other research groups, using synchrotron and free-electron laser facilities around the world. Argonne National Laboratory has an Advanced Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) and will be the home to POLARIS (a petascale computer) and AURORA (an exascale computer). The successful candidate will work closely with the scientists at ALCF to develop highly parallelized codes that make use of POLARIS and AURORA.
