Research Scientist position at the ILL

The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) is an international fundamental research 
institute funded by France, Germany and the United Kingdom. Agreements on 
scientific collaboration have also been signed with Austria, the Czech 
Republic, Italy, Russia, Spain and Switzerland. 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 Diffraction 
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. 
Applications from more experienced scientists on secondment will also be 

The successful candidate must be a highly motivated scientist with a PhD. 
In addition to carrying out a personal research programme, he/she will be 
expected to participate in the operation and development of a 
single-crystal diffractometer. In particular, we are looking for candidates 
with experience in single-crystal determination of small to medium 
structures, and data reduction with large 2D area detectors. Neutron 
diffraction experience is not essential, but an expert knowledge of 
crystallography and scientific computing is.

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.
Potential candidates should first read about the ILL's Diffraction Group on 
http://www.ill.fr/dif/ and then, if there are remaining questions they may 
email Dr A.W. Hewat: hewat at ill.fr.

An application with curriculum vitae, a list of publications and the names 
of two academic referees should be submitted by 17.04.2004, quoting 
reference 04/08, preferably in electronic form to: guillermet at ill.fr or
