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.
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:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, or the IN20 instrument scientist Dr. Mechthild Enderle email@example.com.
