Grenoble, France

Description of Institution

The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), situated in Grenoble, France, is Europe’s leading research facility for fundamental research using neutrons. The ILL operates the brightest neutron source in the world, and welcomes over 2000 visits of scientists per year to carry out world-class research in a wide variety of scientific fields. Funded primarily by its three founder members: France, Germany and the United Kingdom, the ILL has also signed scientific collaboration agreements with 10 other countries.

Job description

Research Scientist in Condensed Matter (M/F):

Within the Spectroscopy Group, IN20 is the thermal three-axis instrument with the highest polarized neutron flux world-wide. Equipped with various polarization analysis options, it is ideally suited to study magnetic excitations in the 2-90 meV range as well as their interplay with the lattice on single crystals. The instrument is very much appreciated for its ability to detect small magnetic signals. We are constantly aiming to push its efficiency and to exploit its unique potential further.

Working on IN20, your main missions will be to:

  • Co-manage the instrument
  • Provide the instrument users with support for performing their experiments and collecting the data relevant to their scientific problem under optimal conditions
  • Initiate development and maintenance
  • Develop your own scientific work and establish strong collaborations
  • Promote neutron science, with particular emphasis to ILL, within the scientific community and the general public.

The post represents an excellent opportunity for a young postdoctoral scientist to develop expertise, broaden experience and interact with leading scientists from around the world.

Fixed-term contract of 5 years.

Further information can be obtained by contacting the head of the Spectroscopy Group, Dr. Bela FARAGO , or the IN20 instrument scientist Dr. Mechthild Enderle .
Please do not send your application to these addresses

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).

Requested Profile

Qualifications and experience:
You have:

  • A Ph.D. in condensed matter physics, or equivalent qualification.
  • Experience in neutron scattering, knowledge in magnetism and crystallography, and an interest in the collective dynamics of magnetic materials.
  • Practical skills in instrumentation and software development.

Some experience with polarized neutrons is desirable.

Language skills:
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.

How to Apply

Please submit your application with a list of publications and the name of 3 references (including one from your present work place) on-line, no later than 19/02/2017, via the link below. The interviews will take place between March 20th and March 24th.

The application should be submitted in English.
