Our group uses photon-based (both x-ray and optical) techniques to study the atomic and electronic structure of several classes of materials, including single crystals, thin films, and heterointerfaces. We perform synthesis and optical measurements in our lab and at external facilities (in particular, light sources) around the world. For any current openings in our group, please see project descriptions below.

X-ray imaging — We are offering a (2+1)-year postdoctoral position for a project focusing on resonant soft X-ray coherent diffractive imaging of complex solids. We are looking for individuals with expertise and prior experience in at least one of the following areas: (1) X-ray lensless imaging experiments and phase retrieval algorithms; (2) resonant soft X-ray scattering or imaging; and (3) the study of nanoscale textures in electronic and magnetic materials, such as phase coexistence and domain physics. The position is affiliated with MIT, but the work will be based at the Advanced Light Source in LBNL and conducted under the guidance of Sujoy Roy.
