Dear Colleages,

KENS facility is a pulsed neutron source in Japan.   The facility has bee st
arted since 1980.  The accelerator power is very small, however, unique inst
rumants create unique scientific outputs.  You can access to the home page o
f KENS to see details,

We have special arrangement for US young scientists to be a postdoctral fell
ow in Japan supported by Japan Society of Science Promotion (JSSP).  Hence,
this year also, we are offering posisions for postdoctral fellow in KENS pul
sed neutron facility.

There are two categories for this offer.
1) long term position.  ( loger than 12months , shorter than 24months.)
2) short term position. ( longer than 3months, shorter than 12months.)
Sarary:  270,000yen/month+ cost for appartment( up to 100,000yen/month) + ro
und trip expence to Japan + domestic travel costs in Japan (up to ~58,500yen
/year)  + research budget (1,500,00yen/year).

We want to have a person who will work on one of the following activities wi
th KENS staffs.
Reserch activity:
        (1)Studies on material structure and dynamics by neans of pulsed neu
tron scattering.
                There are several activityies in KENS.
                        Amorphous materials, low dimensional magnetism, high
-Tc superconductors,

and instrumentation.
                We are working on conceptual design of instruments for futur
e neutron sources.
                R&D for instrumentation, neutron detectors, neutron optics.

Restriction for application:
