The NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) is a multidisciplinary research
 facility that provides modern neutron instrumentation for investigations
in a wide range of topics in physics, chemistry, materials science,
biology, and engineering.  The instrumentation is available through a
formal user program, through collaborative research programs with NIST
staff, and via cooperative research agreements and programs with University
scientists.  Currently we are seeking qualified candidates for two
potential openings:  An Instrument Scientist in small angle neutron
scattering, and a postdoctoral-type position for a person with experience
in triple axis spectrometry, in the general area of Magnetism and
	Some additional information about the positions follows.  For more
information about the facility please visit our webpage at

Small-Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS) Instrument Scientist.  
A recent Ph.D. in experimental Condensed Matter or Materials Physics,
Materials Science, or Chemical Physics with experience in microstructure
characterization using x-ray or neutron diffraction techniques is sought to
share the responsibilities associated with the operation of two, 30 meter
SANS instruments.  These responsibilities include assisting visiting
researchers in conducting experiments and reducing data, instrument testing
and calibration, and participating in instrument and equipment development
projects, including software development.  These duties are intended to
occupy no more than two-thirds of the instrument scientist's time to enable
him/her to conduct independent or collaborative research using the SANS
instruments and other facilities at the NCNR.  Appointment will initially
be for two years with the possibility of extension for up to an additional
two years.  Salary is in the range from $40,000 to $50,000 depending on
qualifications and experience.

Letters expressing interest in this position along with a resume should be
sent to:

Dr. Charles J. Glinka
Building 235, E-151
National Institute of Standards and Technology
Gaithersburg, Maryland 20899
(301) 975-6242
or electronically at CGlinka at

Magnetism and Superconductivity
A recent Ph.D in experimental condensed matter physics is sought, with
experience in the general area of dynamics of magnetic materials and/or
superconductors.  Familiarity with triple-axis spectrometry is desired, but
not essential.  No formal instrumental responsibilities are required, with
the majority of the scientist's time devoted to collaborative or
independent research in the team.  Positions are typically two to three
years, with a salary in the range $40,000-$45,000 depending on
qualifications and experience.
