Position: Beamline Data Scientist
Institution: Paul Scherrer Institut
Location: Villigen, Aargau, Switzerland
Duties: You will be a part of the MX group and participate in development and user operation of the three MX beamlines at the SLS. Your main tasks in collaboration with PSI detector and IT groups are: Develop high performance data acquisition system for the next generation high frame-rate X-Ray detectors such as JUNGFRAU; Develop innovative and sustainable hardware/software solutions for high data-rate MX applications in SLS and SLS 2.0; Optimization of data compression, real-time analysis, and storage; Explore new computing technologies like machine learning for self-driving beamline operation and self-learning MX experiment and data analysis; Integrate network-based ancillary beamline hardware (IoT) in the operation work-flow; Support high data-rate user operation of MX beamlines at SLS/SLS 2.0 and SwissFEL; Opportunities to develop your own research including pursuing 3rd party funding; Supervision of assigned personnel, mentoring of PhD students and Postdocs
Requirements: You hold a PhD degree in natural science or related field, and have substantial experience in high data-rate synchrotron experiments, e. g. MX. A track record of applying modern computing environments to enable scientific research is required. As a teamplayer you will work in a stimulating international environment, giving you excellent opportunities for new initiatives. Very good command of English is mandatory, and knowledge of German is an advantage

We perform cutting-edge research in the fields of matter and materials, energy and environment and human health. By performing fundamental and applied research, we work on sustainable solutions for major challenges facing society, science and economy. PSI is committed to the training of future generations. Therefore, about one quarter of our staff are Postdocs, post-graduates or apprentices. Altogether, PSI employs 2100 people. The Swiss Light Source SLS is one of the most advanced synchrotron radiation sources worldwide and its upgrade project SLS 2.0 toward diffraction limited storage ring is planned for 2023/24. The SLS Macromolecular Crystallography MX group operates two high performance undulator beamlines as well as a state-of-the-art superbending magnet beamline for MX. The group focuses on methods development in MX including advanced beamline instrumentation, novel X-Ray detectors, emerging data collection methods for experimental phasing, in situ serial crystallography, and time-resolved crystallography. Currently, we are designing the upgrades of three MX beamlines for SLS 2.0. To fully exploit the brightness enhancement of SLS 2.0, we envision a paradigm shift from the current data-exploration approaches to the future data-driven approaches at the next generation MX beamlines. In this context, we are looking for a Beamline Data Scientist Macromolecular Crystallography Your tasks You will be a part of the MX group and participate in development and user operation of the three MX beamlines at the SLS.
