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 Three-Axis 
Spectrometer (TAS) 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 who are able to obtain 
a secondment period from their home institute will also be considered.

The successful candidate will be a highly motivated scientist with a PhD in 
solid-state physics or chemistry and an interest in instrumentation and 
computing. Some experience of neutron scattering, preferably in the field 
of the study of collective excitations in crystals, would be appreciated. 
In addition to carrying out his/her own research programme, he/she will 
take charge, in collaboration with the first instrument responsible, of the 
operation and development of the three-axis spectrometer IN14, which is 
installed on a cold neutron beam. His/her duties will also include 
promoting scientific partnerships in his/her field of research and acting 
on a regular basis as "local contact" for outside users carrying out 
experiments at the ILL, in particular on the various instruments in the TAS 

The successful candidate will be offered a fixed-term contract, the 
duration of which will under no circumstances exceed five (5) years. In 
addition to a competitive salary, certain benefits (reimbursement of 
removal expenses, adaptation allowance, etc.) may be offered.
