Introduction

The Neutron Physics Laboratory (NPL) at the Nuclear Physics Institute, ?ež near Prague, Czech Republic, invites applications for an instrument scientist position in the field of neutron diffraction with a strong emphasis on materials investigations by characterization of microstrains and deformation mechanism.

Description of Institution

The Nuclear Physics Institute, CAS, public research institution, is a member of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. With about 250 employees, it hosts the user infrastructure CANAM, which includes also Neutron Physics Laboratory (NPL). The NPL research team combines expertise in the field of materials science with the power of neutron physics. The user facilities of NPL are open to both national and international guest scientists – at least 40% of the instrument beam time is reserved for external research proposals.

Job description

The successful candidate will participate in the research and development work associated with neutron scattering instrumentation at the neutron diffractometer TKSN-400 dedicated to characterization of microstrains and deformation mechanism in technologically important materials. Responsibilities will include the cooperation with visiting researchers in conducting experiments and data reduction in the subjects like microstrain characterization of materials within the open access user program of CANAM. She/he will also participate in the instrumental equipment and software upgrade projects at the diffractometer. The instrument scientist is also expected to develop her/his own research program using the diffractometer and/or other facilities at NPL, preferably in the field of characterization of microstrains and deformation mechanism in alloys and related topics.

Timescale of the appointment:
The appointment will initially be for three years with the possibility of extension.

For more information, please contact Dr. Pavel Strunz (+420 266173553, ).

Requested Profile
  • PhD in physics, chemistry, material science and engineering or related areas.
  • Proven record of experience with experimental research in materials science.
  • Background in neutron or X-ray diffraction methods.
  • Good technical and communication skills.
