[Neutron] 3 Postdoc positions in the Bragg Institute, Sydney, Australia

ROBINSON, Robert rro at ansto.gov.au
Mon Sep 1 20:27:36 CDT 2003

3 Post Doctoral Fellowships - see http://www.ansto.gov.au/info/vac/vac2003/postdoc/postdoc.html
We have 3 opportunities for recent Ph. D graduates with a strong innovation focus, good communication skills and a proven publication record. We are seeking researchers who work well within small multidisciplinary teams and collaborate strongly with other
research groups to undertake research using neutron and X-ray scattering.

Neutron Reflectometry and Biosensors - see http://www.ansto.gov.au/info/vac/vac2003/postdoc/refbio.pdf
We have established a joint postdoctoral fellowship between ANSTO's Characterisation of Biomolecules project and the UNSECO Centre for Membrane Science and Technology at the University of New South Wales. The aims of the position are to produce biosensor
substrates from ultra-thin organic mono- and multilayers bonded to silicon. These biosensors will then be characterised by a range of biochemical and physical techniques such as X-ray and neutron reflectometry and AC impedance spectroscopy.
For further information contact Dr Michael James: mja at ansto.gov.au

Materials Chemist (Nanocomposites) - see http://www.ansto.gov.au/info/vac/vac2003/postdoc/nano.pdf
The fellow will work in the Nanostructure of Complex Systems project, which applies a multidisciplinary approach to a range of problems focussed on industry. The fellow must have experience in the synthesis of metal oxide/organic nanoparticles, thin films
and/or mesoporous inorganic materials using surfactant templating, sol-gel and related materials chemistry techniques. In addition, the fellow will contribute to the development of new conducting polymer/transition metal oxide nanocomposites. Novel methods
of preparation and investigation of the nanostructure of these systems using small angle X-ray and neutron scattering techniques would be expected.

Fellow in Powder Diffraction - see http://www.ansto.gov.au/info/vac/vac2003/postdoc/powder.pdf
As part of the Neutron Scattering Science project, we are seeking a postdoctoral fellow skilled in crystal structure determination using neutron or X-ray powder diffraction and Rietveld data analysis techniques. Systems of interest include rare earth
manganates, cobaltates and ferrates as well as ionic conductors and strongly correlated electron systems. Experience in powder synthesis techniques and/or characterisation of magnetic materials by powder diffraction would be seen as beneficial.
