> Neutron Instrument Scientist Positions 
> at the new LENS Neutron Source at Indiana University
> LENS is a long-pulsed cold neutron source that will be devoted to 
> neutron scattering research, education, and instrument development. 
> This source is now under construction at the Indiana University 
> Cyclotron Facility (IUCF).  IUCF is seeking two instrument scientists 
> who will each have overall responsibility for one of the proposed scattering 
> instruments.  The three instruments are (1) a SANS spectrometer similar 
> to the SAND instrument at IPNS, (2) a flexible, wide dynamic range zero 
> field spin-echo instrument for SANS/reflectometry/diffraction, and (3) a 
> radiography instrument that exploits phase contrast techniques, neutron 
> TOF, and fast, high spatial-resolution neutron detector technology to 
> extend radiography into qualitatively new domains. Responsibilities will 
> include cooperating with visiting scientists in conducting experiments and 
> analyzing data, maintaining the instrument and its associated analysis 
> software, participating in instrumentation design and development projects, 
> and conducting an independent research program.  Applicants can find a 
> detailed description of LENS and its proposed instrumentation at 
> http://www.iucf.indiana.edu/materialscience.shtml. 
> QUALIFICATIONS:  Ph.D. degree in Physics, Chemistry, Materials 
> Science or other suitable field.  Experience with either the characterization 
> of condensed matter systems using scattering techniques or the creative 
> manipulation of neutron or neutral atomic beams is essential.  Experience 
> with x-ray and neutron techniques (particularly SANS, radiography, and/or 
> zero-field neutron spin echo techniques) is highly desirable.  Preference will 
> be given to individuals with experience in either neutron instrumentation 
> design and data analysis or equivalent experience with neutral atomic beams.  
> Good communication skills (both written and oral), diverse scientific interests, 
> and a desire to educate new users in neutron scattering techniques are also 
> essential.  Applicants who can demonstrate an understanding of the implications 
> of the long (~msec) pulse for LENS instrument design and suggest creative 
> means to make use of the capabilities of the LENS beams will distinguish 
> themselves.
> This is a full-time position in the IU Research Scientist Ranks that provides 
> excellent benefits and opportunities for professional growth.  The IUCF is an 
> accelerator-based research facility engaged in research and development in 
> nuclear/particle/accelerator physics, neutron scattering, and materials research.  
> For further information on IUCF and the LENS facilities, please visit our web 
> page at http://www.iucf.indiana.edu.  For information regarding the excellent 
> cultural, academic, and recreational activities in Bloomington and its environs, 
> refer to http://www.bloomington.in.us and http://www.indiana.edu/iub. 
> Send résumé, bibliography, statement of research and instrumentation 
> development goals for one of the LENS instruments, and contact information 
> for three references no later than 9/30/03 to:
> Dr. John M. Cameron, Director
> Indiana University Cyclotron Facility

> IU is strongly committed to achieving excellence through cultural diversity.  
> The university actively encourages applications and nominations of women, 
> persons of color, applicants with disabilities, and members of other 
> underrepresented groups.  
> Indiana University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Employment institution.
