The staff scientist with experience in inorganic crystallography should have an active interest in the analysis and correlation of structural material properties with functional properties.
Determine the crystal structure of new crystalline compounds or known compounds in forms where the crystal structure differs from bulk structures due to, e.g., strain, anisotropy, stacking faults, etc. Samples may either be powder, single crystals, or the phase evolution of crystallites during, e.g., electrochemical or thermal processes (intercalation, growth, alloying, segregation, etc).
Analyze the atomic arrangement of solids to correlate material properties by using data from X-ray, electron or neutron diffraction, together with other analytical techniques and computer modeling.

Your profile
PhD in physics, chemistry or material science. Post-graduate experience in a demanding and high-level research environment
Deep understanding of crystal structures
Expertise in crystal structure determination, orientation/texture, and refinement
Expertise in 3D atomic modeling and in electron backscattering diffraction data analysis
Expertise small angle x-ray scattering and in synchrotron facilities
