The ILL operates the brightest neutron source in the world and hosts over 2000 visits by scientists per year, who come to carry out world-class research in a wide variety of scientific fields. We currently have a vacancy for a Post-Doctoral Research Assistant M/F – Ionic Liquids

Job description

Duties

Working within the Spectroscopy group and funded by the European grant FILL2030, you will be in charge of boosting the development of methods for studying the dynamics and structural properties of ionic liquids (ILs) using (in particular) neutrons, and of fostering links with external groups working in fields such as diffraction and small-angle neutron scattering.

‘Ionic liquid’ is the collective name for a huge variety of different compositions; in fact, several subgroups have already been defined, for example magnetic ionic liquids (MIL). If the organic ligands have long aliphatic tails, these compounds can repel water and form microemulsion-like structures. At present, the work using neutrons represents only a small portion of the publications on ILs. The large incoherent scattering of the hydrogen atoms of the organic molecules makes them suitable for neutron scattering, Different parts of the molecules can be highlighted by full (or partial) deuteration to enhance the visibility of structure or dynamics. The large number of H atoms allows dynamical studies with a large dynamic range from methyl rotation to centre-of-mass diffusion. The magnetic properties of MIL are also a stronghold of neutrons.

The Spectroscopy group operates a range of instruments designed to carry out studies covering a broad spectrum of energy ranges, from hundreds of meV (Lagrange, thermal Time of Flight) to neV (Neutron Spin Echo).
This post represents an excellent opportunity for a young scientist to develop expertise, broaden his/her experience and interact with leading scientists from around the world.

Notes

Post-Doctoral contract of 18 months, renewable for a further 6 to 18-month period.
Only candidates holding a PhD obtained less than 2 years ago are eligible for Post-doctoral positions.

Introduction

The aim of this research project is to facilitate the interpretation and understanding of inelastic and quasielastic neutron scattering data by developing a new computer modelling method to model the dynamic structure factor, S(q,omega).

The project is a collaboration between Chalmers University, the European Spallation Source, ISIS Facility and the Niels Bohr Institute. The work will mostly be performed at the ISIS facility, where the position will be based.

In this project S(q,omega) will be calculated using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations while the interatomic potentials will be changed until a quantitative agreement is obtained between the modelled and measured scattering function. The method can be seen as a dynamical correspondence to the Empirical Potential Structure Refinement (EPSR) method used to produce structural models of materials in quantitative agreement with neutron and x-ray diffraction data. It is foreseen that our approach will have similar impact on understanding dynamics as EPSR has on structure. Thus, ESS, ISIS and the user community will benefit enormously from the development of the proposed method.

Further, it will be possible to obtain a considerably deeper understanding of how molecular motions affect the macroscopic properties of a material. Thereby, it will be possible to gain invaluable insight in improving new materials in the areas of chemistry, biology, life science and medicine. Moreover, not only the users of neutron spectroscopy will take advantage of the method, but also the computer simulation community will get a unique possibility to refine model potentials by using this approach.

Description of Institution

ISIS is a world leading facility for condensed matter research using neutron scattering and muon spectroscopy, with a strong scientific user program and extensive international links. ISIS currently operates 30 instruments and, following an additional £21m investment, is currently in the process of building 4 new instruments.

ISIS has a strong record of delivering successful neutron scattering software and this is an opportunity to join an international project with significant scope to lead areas of work.

Job description

You will initially focus on developing a new modelling tool; where the you will be working with experienced software professionals. Soon after the first version of the software package is completed, you will participate in neutron scattering experiments to validate the model against measured data. This step will allow further refinement of the software package. You will also be responsible for documenting the software and writing scientific articles about the developed modelling tool.

You will be part of the team developing and supporting scientific software. Therefore, as part of your work you will interact frequently with the ISIS scientists and will also be supported by the partners at Chalmers University, the European Spallation Source the Niels Bohr Institute. The post will reside within the Scientific Computing section of the ISIS Computing Group.

Introduction

The Emergent Phenomena Group of the Center for Correlated Electron System (CCES), Institute for Basic Science (IBS), invites applications for postdoctoral research fellow. The Institute of Basic Science (http://www.ibs.re.kr/) is an ambitious new program by the South Korean government to foster the basic sciences in Korea. Prof. Je-Geun Park leads the Emergent Phenomena Group of IBS CCES (http://magnetism.snu.ac.kr). We at Prof Park’s group aim to pursue groundbreaking and fundamental researches in strongly correlated electron physics by taking advantage of state-of-the-art instruments and theoretical support.

Description of Institution

The Emergent Phenomena Group led by Prof. Je-Geun Park is the 2nd group established within the IBS Center for Correlated Electron Systems. We focus on strongly correlated electron systems such as transition metal oxides and related materials, mostly in bulk form. Having these three teams working together allows our group to paint a complete picture of novel materials, studying their crystal and magnetic structure, physical properties and spin dynamics. Our ability to rapidly characterize and investigate the properties of new materials offers crucial feedback to improve the sample preparation, while having a dedicated Materials team ensures a steady supply of new and interesting systems for investigation. To do this, we are equipped with state-of-the-art instruments covering all areas of our research topics. Please see the relevant sections of our homepage for more information.

Job description

You will be part of research projects led by Professor Je-Geun Park and belong to Scattering Team. The projects at Prof. Park’s group aim to understand novel phases of strongly correlated electron systems. The Scattering Team uses inelastic neutron and X-ray scattering techniques to tackle several interesting problems such as magnon-phonon coupling, magnon breakdown, to name only a few. We also have extensive collaborations with two other teams: Materials Team and Van der Waals Team, at the group. Although each of three teams has their own specific goals but also collaborate on larger projects. Successful candidates are expected to have experience in at least one of the following areas: materials synthesis, bulk characterization, or neutron or x-ray scattering. Each postdoctoral position is a 2 year position and may be extended for an additional year
