Post-Doctoral Position in Powder Diffraction at IPNS

Argonne National Laboratory, one of the nation's premier scientific research
and development organizations, located 20 miles southwest of Chicago, is now
looking to fill a post-doctoral position in the Intense Pulsed Neutron
Source (IPNS) Division, a facility dedicated to materials science research
using neutron scattering techniques.

The successful applicant will join the General Purpose Powder Diffractometer
(GPPD) instrument team at IPNS, participate in user-initiated as well as
independent scientific programs, and join in commissioning the upgraded GPPD
(to be completed in 2003).  Ongoing scientific activities include: (1)
crystal chemistry and structure-property relationships in catalytic
materials; (2) crystallographic and dynamics studies of occluded zeolites -
particularly directed at guest-framework interactions; and (3) residual
strain/crystallographic texture measurements in alloys and composites,
including strain and orientation distribution function determinations.  A
PhD degree awarded within the last three years in a discipline such as
chemistry, materials science or physics is required.  Highly desirable is a
motivated scientist with a strong background in diffraction and
crystallography, including familiarity with x-ray and neutron scattering,
powder diffraction and structure/property relationships.

We welcome applications from candidates who can contribute to our
EEO/Affirmative Action goals.  Interested candidates should submit a
curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, and a statement of
research interests.
