                      Postdoctoral Fellowship
                        McMaster University

A postdoctoral fellowship in neutron and x-ray scattering studies of
topical problems in materials physics is offered at McMaster University
under the supervision of Prof. B.D. Gaulin.  Facilities at McMaster
include a modern x-ray scattering laboratory, based on an 18 kW rotating
anode generator, as well as an extensive array of sample preparation
facilities including a new floating zone image furnace laboratory for
large single crystal growth. The research group makes extensive use of
neutron scattering facilities at Chalk River, NIST, Oak Ridge, and

Areas of current interest include exotic magnetic ground state materials,
high temperature superconductivity, and phases and phase transitions in
model biological membrane materials.  Experience in neutron or x-ray
scattering techniques is an asset, but is not required.  This position is
available immediately, but later starting dates can be accomodated.  
Interested parties should arrange to send their cv, along with the names
and contact information of at least two persons familiar with their work,
