Position for a Condensed-Matter Scientist at Chalk River, Canada 
Located at Chalk River, Canada's neutron beam laboratory provides an
excellent environment for building a research career in condensed-matter
science.  The Neutron Program for Materials Research (NPMR) is solidly
funded by the National Research Council (the primary Canadian agency for
strategic R&D), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (which
supports university-based R&D) and by industry clients.  A 120 MW research
reactor is our medium-flux source of thermal neutrons, and is expected to
operate until a new neutron beam facility (Canadian Neutron Facility) is
available.  The conceptual design of the CNF includes a cold neutron source,
guide hall and a suite of 11 instruments in the initial project.  While we
press for a positive decision to fund the CNF, new instruments and methods
are being developed within the current program, to strengthen the neutron
scattering research community and extend the applications of neutron
scattering to new and exciting frontiers.  

We are inviting young scientists in the field of condensed matter science to
apply for a newly-created continuing position with our program.  There is a
preference for candidates who will be capable of assuming leadership of our
program in magnetism, which involves an extensive network of international
collaborations in quantum magnetism, superconductivity, frustrated
antiferromagnetism, phase transitions and more.   The deadline for
applications is January 18, 2002.
