Dear Colleagues,

KENS will offer one or two postdoctoral positions for young scientists.

KENS facility is a pulsed neutron source in Japan.  The facility has been
operated since 1980.  The accelerator power is very small, however, unique
instruments create unique scientific outputs.  You can access to the home
page of KENS to see details,

We will offer one or two postdoctoral positions for Center Of Excellence
program (COE).

There are several restrictions and conditions for this position,
1) age should be younger than 35 years old on 31-March 1999,

8) but no travel support from/to abroad.
9) no restriction on nationality.

We want to have persons who will work on one of the following activities
with KENS staffs.
Research activity:
        (1)Studies on material structure and dynamics by means of pulsed
neutron scattering.
                There are several activities in KENS.
                        Amorphous materials, low dimensional magnetism,
high-Tc superconductors,
                        hydrogenous materials.

        (2)Design work of pulsed neutron instrument, Monte Carlo
simulation, data analysis and instrumentation.
                We are working on conceptual design of instruments for
future neutron sources.
                R&D for instrument, neutron detectors, neutron optics.
