Beamline Technician

Website SESAME_Jordan Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science & Applications in the Middle East (SESAME)

SESAME is the first synchrotron light source in the Middle East and neighbouring countries. It is located in Allan (Jordan). The facility was officially inaugurated in May 2017. It consists of a 20 MeV Microtron, an 800 MeV Booster synchrotron and a 2.5 GeV electron storage ring. Three beamlines are in operation and hosting users. They are the XAFS/XRF (X-ray Absorption Fine Structure/X-ray Fluorescence) spectroscopy beamline, the IR (Infrared) spectromicroscopy beamline and the MS (Materials Science) beamline. Two further beamlines (for X-ray tomography and soft X-ray spectroscopy) are being constructed and are expected to come into operation in 2022. This suite of five beamlines, from the seven planned for Phase I, will allow world-class research in virtually all fields of science.

SESAME is seeking a Beamline Technician with three to ten years of professional experience in precision mechanics and scientific instrumentation. The successful candidate will work under the direct supervision of the scientific director.

Submission deadline: February 16, 2021 or until a suitable candidate is found.
