The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) is Europe’s leading research facility for fundamental research using neutrons. We operate the brightest neutron source in the world and are situated on an international science hub: the European Photon & Neutron (EPN) Science Campus, in Grenoble, France. Funded primarily by France, Germany and the United Kingdom, we have scientific collaboration agreements with 12 other countries. Together with the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), we have set-up a Partnership for Soft Condensed Matter (PSCM) that provides a platform for promoting the complementary aspects of neutron and synchrotron techniques in the soft matter field.
As part of the ILL Soft Matter Science & Support Group, you work in close collaboration with its head and the other members. You will:
Personal skills expected
Qualifications and experience
You hold a PhD in physics or physical chemistry. Postdoctoral experience in cutting-edge soft matter research is considered an advantage.
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.
