Research Associate/Assistant Professor positions in bio-imaging beamline endstation at Shanghai-XFEL Beamline Project
Shanghai soft X-ray free electron laser (Shanghai-XFEL) beamline project is one of major national scientific and technological infrastructure projects, which is funded by National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC). The objective of the project is to provide high-performance research platform with XFEL for scientists in various fields such as physics, chemistry, biology and materials. The Bio-imaging endstation, as the first batch of endstations at Shanghai-XFEL, will provide coherent diffraction imaging (CDI) as well as other analytical methods such as holography, pump -probe microscopy and mass spectroscopy.  
Now 2 research associate or assistant professor positions are available to develop intelligent software and hardware for bio-imaging endstation at Shanghai-XFEL. These positions will include the development of data processing and analysis, beamline control, and data collection software as part of a multi-institutional team. We invite highly motivated individuals with a Ph.D. degree to work with us in these exciting research areas.
