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

SESAME is the first synchrotron light source in the Middle East. It is located in Allan (Jordan). The facility consists of a 20 MeV Microtron, an 800 MeV Booster synchrotron and a 2.5 GeV electron storage ring.

Two beamlines, the XAFX/XRF (X-ray absorption fine structure/X-ray fluorescence) spectroscopy and IR (infrared) spectromicroscopy beamlines, are in operation and started to host users in 2018. A third beamline, the MS (Materials Science) beamline, is expected to come on stream in a few months, and a fourth, the MX (Macromolecular Crystallography) beamline, is under construction.

Meanwhile, plans are underway for construction of the BEATS (BEAmline for Tomography at SESAME) beamline and HESEB (HElmholtz-SEsame) beamline for soft X-rays. SESAME will therefore permit world-class research in virtually all fields of science.

The Centre offers a vibrating and stimulating international environment with great possibility for scientific and technical growth. It is seeking to recruit a motivated Control Engineer to support the activities in the Personal Safety Systems (PSS) and Control Engineering Group. SESAME uses state-of-the-art instrumentation, codes and tools to ensure the reliable operation of the three accelerators.

Submission deadline: June 1, 2019
