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 an IR Beamline Scientist with an advanced university degree at doctorate level in physics or chemistry who has experience in IR microspectroscopy technique. The successful candidate will work under the direct supervision of the scientific director.
Submission deadline: March 16, 2021 or until a suitable candidate is found.
