Position for a Research Scientist at the ILL (Grenoble, France) 

The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) is an international fundamental research
institute funded by France, Germany and the United Kingdom. Agreements on
scientific collaboration have also been signed with Austria, the Czech
Republic, Italy, Russia, Spain and Switzerland. The Institute operates the
most powerful source of neutrons in the world, a 58 MW reactor, which was
completely refurbished in 1995. The reactor forms the basis for a programme
of research covering a wide variety of fields, supplying neutrons to a broad
range of instruments which are available to scientists from the member

ILL currently has an opening for a Research Scientist in its Diffraction
Group. The post represents an excellent opportunity for a young postdoctoral
scientist to develop his/her expertise, broaden his/her experience and
interact with leading scientists from around the world. More experienced
scientists on detachment will also be considered. 

We are looking for a second instrument responsible on the polarised neutron
diffractometer D3 (http://www.ill.fr/YellowBook/D3). The successful
candidate must be a highly motivated scientist with a PhD in physics. In
addition to carrying out a personal research programme, he/she will be
expected to participate in the operation and development of the instrument.
The scientist chosen will join a dynamic team who are in the forefront of
the development of new polarised neutron techniques, which are opening up
new scientific areas. Some experience with polarised neutrons would be an

The successful candidate will be offered a fixed-term contract, the duration
of which will under no circumstances exceed five (5) years. In addition to a
competitive salary, certain benefits (reimbursement of removal expenses,
adaptation allowance, etc.) may be offered.
