OFFER DESCRIPTION

The project aims to automate a new XRD in-situ installation to be built at the NCD-SWEET beamline of ALBA light source (Cerdanyola del Valles, Barcelona) and develop routines for image data query/retrieve/storage/analysis. The installation will monitor ultrafast (~100 ms/frame) crystallization processes during fast heating ramps with a fast 2D XRD image detector. The system will be also equipped with a residual gas analysis mass spectrometer and an in-situ conductivity measurement. The samples to be analysed are high temperature superconducting films for the energy transition, though the installation should be open to other materials. The project will also explore the in-situ growth of combinatorial samples with compositional gradients for their evaluation using machine learning algorithms. Therefore, large amounts of data will have to be managed.

The project is a collaboration between the Superconducting Materials Groups at the Materials Science Institute of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) and the NCD-SWEET beamline at ALBA synchrotron light source. The research work will be developed at the ALBA premises and the successful candidate will become a beamline support engineer. He/she will collaborate with the control group of the ALBA Computing Division in the activities related to control, software development and automation of beamline instrumentation and procedures specially related to this project. Salary will be negotiated according to the experience of the candidate.

The project aims to engage a talented engineer with experience in software development and image data management, with high skills in python programing and equipment automation. Interest in machine learning algorithms is welcome. He/she will be the Image Data and Automation Manager.
