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
ILL currently has an opening for a Research Scientist in its Diffraction
