Washington State University The Dynamic Compression Sector

Available Positions

Join the Frontier of Dynamic Compression Science at Sector 35

Research Positions

Laser Physicist/Engineer
We are looking to hire a Laser Physicist/Engineer who enjoys hands-on work and problem solving in a fast-paced, research environment. The DCS research activities involve state-of-the-art, dynamic compression experiments that utilize x-ray and optical measurements to understand the response of materials on nanosecond time-scales at high dynamic stresses. The location for this WSU position is the Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), Argonne, IL. As such, DCS staff are considered to be “resident users” and must adhere to ANL policies and procedures, including the completion of required training courses.

X-Ray Scientist
We are looking to hire an X-ray Scientist, with a strong background in Condensed Matter Physics, who enjoys hands-on work and problem solving in a fast-paced, research environment. The location for this WSU position is the Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, IL. The DCS research activities involve state-of-the-art, dynamic compression experiments that utilize x-ray and optical measurements on nanosecond time-scales to understand the response of materials at high dynamic stresses.
