PHOTON SCIENCE FACULTY POSITION (Associate or Full Professor)
The Photon Science Department at SLAC and Stanford University invites applications for a tenured position at the Associate or Full Professor level. The successful applicant will provide technical and intellectual leadership to the Stanford faculty with a focus on research at the frontiers of X-ray ultrafast science. This will involve engaging with Department colleagues and mentoring graduate students and postdoctoral.
The successful applicant will also direct the Science, Research and Development (SRD) Division at the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS). Reporting to the Associate Laboratory Director (ALD) for LCLS, the SRD Division Director will be expected to develop and execute world-leading research programs at LCLS and function as a critical member of the LCLS Leadership team. The successful applicant will:
Direct and develop a research team of scientific and technical staff, both individually and collectively
Drive the continual development of in-house scientific excellence, innovation, and adventure in our scientific and technical staff. Oversee all aspects of hiring, performance management, and staff development
Lead the design, planning, and execution of the LCLS research programs. Work with the wider LCLS team and user community to: 1) Identify prioritized research directions for LCLS that will deliver internationally leading results at a scale commensurate with the investment and ambition of our laboratory and sponsors 2) Plan, commission, and exploit the identified developments
Foster a highly collaborative, positive, respectful, and inclusive culture in all aspects of our work
The Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) is an internationally pre-eminent X-ray science facility, operated by Stanford University at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory on behalf of the Department of Energy, Office of Science. This facility provides world-leading scientific capabilities to a global user community, covering a very broad research portfolio.
This is a pivotal time for LCLS, and a rare opportunity to shape the scientific nature and direction of the facility. We are nearing completion of LCLS-II, representing more than a billion dollars of investment in a new accelerator complex that will increase the X-ray repetition rate and average power by almost 4 orders of magnitude. LCLS-II will transform our ability to observe electronic and molecular dynamics, with a new suite of end stations being designed to make optimum use of the new sources. A subsequent upgrade to enable the delivery of high energy X-rays (LCLS-II-HE) is also underway, opening up the study of rare events, transient phases, and heterogeneous systems with atomic resolution and femtosecond precision.
The successful applicant will have a Ph.D. in a scientific field strongly related to LCLS science, with at least 10 years of post-Ph.D. professional experience including:
Extensive body of research, development, or applied work that is internationally acknowledged to have defined major advancements in research
Extensive experience leading and managing scientific and technical research groups and proven ability to mentor junior staff and peers, with a strong focus on career development
Substantial experience in delivering complex, multi-year technical projects
Work and communicate effectively with a diverse population

Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains dedicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 9000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.
