The mission of the Scientific Computing (SC) Group is to deliver and support the critical data treatment software that enables visiting scientists to exploit their scattering data effectively during experiments. This covers everything from ab initio simulations to data reduction and data analysis.
The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), situated in Grenoble, France, is Europe’s leading research facility for scientific research using neutrons. Every year we host over 2000 visits by scientists, who come to carry out world-class research.
Working with 8 other team members, your duties will include:
Implementing data reduction workflows in the Mantid code
Participating in the development of, and providing user support for, the most widely used data analysis software (e.g. SasView, BornAgain, QENS, FullProf, …)
Supporting existing simulation codes (both classical molecular dynamics and DFT) with a view to optimising the experimental strategy through a virtual experiment
Validating results against existing software and developing ‘user friendly’graphical interfaces
Coordinating your actions with scientists and software developers to ensure that the software is delivered in a timely and effective manner.
Medical fitness for work under ionising radiation is required.
You must have a service-oriented attitude, with a committed approach to your work and strong team player skills to be able to work efficiently with the other members of the SC group, as well as with scientists and European partners.
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.
