Calls for Ambitious Talents in Light Source Facilities

The Institute of Advanced Science Facilities, Shenzhen (IASF) is a research institute which is responsible for the whole life cycle planning, construction, operation and maintenance of the integrated particle facilities.

IASF is a multi-disciplinary research center based on the integrated particle facilities in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China. At the primary phase, two active infrastructure projects recently have been being funded and under design and construction, a diffraction limited synchrotron light source and a  Shenzhen superconducting soft-X-ray free electron laser (S3FEL).

The Shenzhen synchrotron light source has a fourth-generation diffraction-limited storage ring with the electron energy of 3 GeV at a low emittance of 50-150 pm·rad. It provides photons with a broad range of energies from 4 MeV to 160 keV and a brightness of 1021 phs/sec/mm2/mrad2/0.1%BW.

S3FEL consists of a 2.5 GeV CW superconducting linear accelerator and four initial undulator lines, aims at generating X-rays between 40 eV and 1 keV at rates up to 1MHz. With these two facilities, IASF will become a world-class light source science center.

IASF is hiring motivated and inspired people to plan, design and construct the multiple extremely bright sources. We are looking for ambitious, talented ones who are excited about playing a vital part in the future of science.

Position requirements

Interested candidates in physics, photonic and optical engineering, vacuum engineering, electronic and electrical engineering, automatic control, computer science and engineering, mechatronics engineering, mechanical engineering.

Applicants for senior scientists and engineers should have an established research program with rich engineering experience and big science facility construction background.

Applicants whom expert with the undulator, beam diagnostic, radiation safety, mechanical engineering, vacuum technology, magnet technology, installation, and collimation, etc. are encouraged to apply for system group head.

Benefits and salary

We offer competitive salary with high standard social insurance and housing fund, paid annual leave and assistance in application for children's school, talent program, and resident permit, etc.
