GRADUATE STUDENTS NEEDED for
GOAL: To develop improved methods of X-ray microscopy
and to apply them to a variety of problems of
NATURE of STUDIES: You will make X-ray microscopy measurements at
the Canadian Light Source (Saskatoon, SK) or the Advanced Light Source
(Berkeley, California) assisted by others of the McMaster
X-ray microscopy team. Depending on your interests and skills,
you will be focused on a specific scientific problem, or you might
assist with the development of a new instrument (programming the control
and user interface software for example). At McMaster you will analyze
data, prepare samples, and help develop analytical software.
SKILLS ACQUIRED: Working in a group environment; knowledge of core excitation spectroscopy (NEXAFS); polymer microstructure; analytical microscopy; synchrotron radiation; programming (C++, LabView, IDL)
SPECIAL BENEFITS: travel (financially supported); close collaboration with industrial scientists (AFCC, Ballard, etc). Expertise with synchrotron radiation instrumentation.
