Announcement of a Postdoc position at the Laboratory for Neutron Scattering
(Paul Scherrer Institute and ETH Zurich):


Further information:


The Paul Scherrer Institute is a multi-disciplinary institute for research
in the natural and engineering sciences with emphasis in the areas of
condensed matter physics, material science, elementary particle physics,
astrophysics and life sciences as well as in energy and the environment. The
Laboratory for Neutron Scattering has an open postdoc position for the

*****    Development of a Phase Space Transformer    *******

Your tasks: 

Realisation of a prototype of a Phase Space Transformer (PST) which shifts
the high phase space density of ultra cold neutrons (UCN) into the cold or
thermal regime. Extensive calculations and simulations have already been
performed. The aim is to design and construct a working device including
the interface to the UCN-source.

Performance of research in the field of solid state physics or material
science, mainly by neutron scattering techniques (the use of X-ray
scattering techniques at the Swiss Light Source SLS is encouraged as well).

Co-operation with guest scientists in their experiments at SINQ.

Your profile:

You are a graduated research scientist with a PhD in physics, preferentially
with some years of research experience in the field of neutron and/or X-ray
scattering. You have some practical knowledge of computing. You are willing
to work in a team and to communicate (establishing a professional
relationship with both staff and guest scientists) as well as to work
flexible hours.
