Research Scientist Position at the ILL (Grenoble, France)

The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) is an international research institute 
funded by France, Germany and the United Kingdom. Agreements on scientific 
collaboration have also been signed with Austria, Italy, Spain, 
Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Russia. The Institute operates the most 
powerful source of neutrons in the world, a 58MW 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 countries.

The ILL has an opening in its Nuclear and Particle Physics Group for 
a  Research Scientist. The post, which is offered on a fixed-term basis, 
represents an excellent opportunity for a young postdoctoral scientist to 
develop his expertise, broaden his experience and interact with leading 
scientists from around the world. More experienced scientists on detachment 
will also be considered.

The ultra cold (and very cold) neutron beam facility PF2 for fundamental 
physics features the most intense UCN beam currently available for 
scientific research of fundamental properties of the neutron.
The successful candidate will be a highly motivated scientist having a PhD, 
and experience in particle physics and/or fundamental physics with 
neutrons. He/she will share responsibility for the facility PF2. 
Additionally he/she will be expected to carry out his/her own research 
programme, assist ILL users in conducting their experiments and participate 
in the operation and development of the PF2 instrument.

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.
Further information can be obtained by contacting the head of the Nuclear 
and Particle Physics group (Dr. H. Börner Tel: +33 (0)4 76 20 73 94; 
e-mail: borner at ill.fr) or via the World Wide Web (http://www.ill.fr/nfp/).

An application with curriculum vitae, a list of publications and the names 
of two academic referees should be sent, quoting reference 03/04, no later 
than 21.03.2003 to:

Dr. H. Börner, Head of NPP Group - INSTITUT LAUE-LANGEVIN
