No.1 Zhongziyuan Road, Dalang, Dongguan, Guangdong Province, China
A Postdoctoral Research Associate position in inelastic neutron scatterings and time-of-flight neutron spectrometer
The China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS) is the first spallation neutron source facility construcuted in developing countries. As one of the largest science and technology infrastructure projects in China, CSNS is expected to have positive effects in promoting science, high-tech development and national security. CSNS is located in Dongguan City, roughly 100km north of Hong Kong. It provides a powerful research platform for fundamental research and high-tech development in many fields, such as materials science and technology, physics, life sciences, chemistry, resources and environment, new energy, etc. CSNS completed its CD4 in August 2018 and has entered its operation phase. Currently CSNS operates 3 neutron instruments including a powder diffractometer, a SANS and a polarized neutron reflectometer, with another 17 instruments in planning.
The polarized neutron group at CSNS is collaborating with the inelastic neutron scattering group at ANSTO, with focus on the time-of-flight cold neutron spectrometer PELICAN. The collaboration has an immediate opening for a Post-doctoral Research Associate position. The successful candidate will spend half of his/her time at CSNS and the other half at Sydney. The candidate will contribute to both CSNS and PELICAN instrumentation development, and is expected to carry out his own scientific studies with inelastic and/or quasi-elastic neutron scattering techniques. Candidates with one or more of the following experiences are highly desired:
1. Inelastic and/or quasi-elastic neutron scatterings,
2. Instrumentation, in particular, on Time-of-flight neutron spectrometer,
3. Polarized neutron techniques,
The successful candidate will receive compensation of roughly ?250k Chinese Yuan per year (pretax), with insurance, provided housing and other benefits. Upon completion of 2-year postdoc, the successful candidate can compete for a permanent staff position within the Institute of High Energy Physics (CSNS). The successful candidate will also have the chance to work or lead newly planned neutron instruments.
The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. degree in Physics or other Material Sciences, Engineering or related fields. Priority will be given to candidates with good English communication and writing skills and strong hands-on ability.Experiences in using a varity of scientific softwares,like Matlab, Python, Labview,etc. will be desirable.
