SESAME is the first synchrotron light source in the Middle East. It is located in Allan (Jordan). The facility consists of a 20 MeV Microtron, an 800 MeV Booster synchrotron and a 2.5 GeV electron storage ring.
Two beamlines, the XAFX/XRF (X-ray absorption fine structure/X-ray fluorescence) spectroscopy and IR (infrared) spectromicroscopy beamlines, are in operation and started to host users in 2018. A third beamline, the MS (Materials Science) beamline, is expected to come on stream in a few months, and a fourth, the MX (Macromolecular Crystallography) beamline, is under construction.
Meanwhile, plans are underway for construction of the BEATS (BEAmline for Tomography at SESAME) beamline and HESEB (HElmholtz-SEsame) beamline for soft X-rays. SESAME will therefore permit world-class research in virtually all fields of science.
The Centre offers a vibrating and stimulating international environment with great possibility for scientific and technical growth. It is seeking to recruit a motivated computer system engineer to develop and maintain the Centre’s IT services to meet the needs of the facility, staff and users.
