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.

ILL currently has an opening for a Research Scientist in its 
"Time-of-Flight and High Resolution" 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.

The successful candidate will become co-responsible of the IN11 Neutron 
Spin Echo spectrometer. This is the highest energy-resolution 
neutron-scattering technique available, especially well suited for 
quasielastic scattering studies in soft condensed matter and magnetic 

The successful candidate must be a highly motivated scientist with a PhD 
in  chemistry or physics. He/she will be expected to carry out a personal 
research programme, assist ILL users in conducting experiments, and 
participate in the operation and development of the IN11 instrument, as 
well as promoting partnerships in his/her field.

Knowledge of Neutron Scattering would be appreciated. Given the relative 
complexity of this technique, an interest in instrumentation, computing and 
development is essential, although  applications from non-specialists in 
this field are explicitly encouraged.

The successful candidate will be offered a fixed-term contract, the 
duration of which will not 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 "Time of 
Flight and High Resolution" Group, Dr.H. Schober, tel. (33) 4 76 20 72 06, 
e-mail: schober at ill.fr, or via the World Wide Web (http://www.ill.fr/tof/).

An application with curriculum vitae, a list of publications and the names 
of two academic referees should be sent, quoting reference 03/18, no later 
than 19.05.2003 to:

Dr. H.Schober, Head of the Time-of-Flight and High-Resolution Group,
INSTITUT LAUE-LANGEVIN - B.P. 156 - 38042 Grenoble Cedex 9 - France
