Within the Science Division, the Time-of-Flight & High Resolution (TOF-HR) group uses a powerful technique to investigate the dynamical properties of matter. Neutron Spin Echo (NSE) is the highest resolution neutron spectroscopic method to investigate the dynamical properties of matter. IN15 has the highest resolution and highest flux among the NSE instruments worldwide.
It is particularly well suited for quasi-elastic neutron scattering studies in the low Q range (0.02 –0.5 Å-1) and small energy exchange E ~ neV – µeV regime. Mostly used for studying dynamics in soft matter, but also in biology, in magnetic systems and slow molecular dynamics.
The instrument is just being upgraded and we are expecting even better unmatched performance. It has a wide user base and is one of the most demanded ILL instruments.
You will be in charge of:
You will also be encouraged to extend your activity to another NSE instrument (WASP) under construction, having smaller resolution but very high angular coverage.
Fixed-term contract: 5 years.
Generous company benefits (expatriation allowance), relocation assistance and language courses may be offered for you and your spouse (for more information, please consult our employment conditions).
Qualifications and experience:
The post represents an excellent opportunity for a postdoctoral scientist to develop expertise, broaden his/her experience and interact with leading scientists from around the world.
Applications from more experienced scientists who are able to obtain a secondment period from their home institute are also encouraged.
As an international research centre, we are particularly keen to ensure that we also attract applicants from outside France. You must have a sound knowledge of English and be willing to learn French (a language course will be paid for by the ILL). Knowledge of German would be an advantage.
