[Neutron] Vacancy for a Research Scientist at ILL
recruitment at ill.fr
Thu Mar 1 16:46:10 CST 2007
The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), situated in Grenoble, France, is
Europe's leading research facility for fundamental research using
neutrons. The ILL operates the brightest neutron source in the world,
reliably delivering intense neutron beams to 40 unique scientific
instruments. The Institute welcomes 1700 visiting scientists per year to
carry out world-class research in solid-state physics, crystallography,
soft matter, biology, chemistry and fundamental physics. Funded
primarily by its three founder members: France, Germany and the United
Kingdom, the ILL has also signed scientific collaboration agreements
with 10 other European countries. The Science Division currently has a
vacancy for a:
*RESEARCH SCIENTIST **(neutron small angle scattering) (m/f)*
Working within the *Large Scale Structures (LSS) Group* in the field of
*Neutron Small Angle Scattering* you will be involved in the day-to-day
running, as well as the longer term development, of the D11 and D22
small-angle scattering instruments. You will be expected to carry out
your own research programme, as well as assisting ILL users in
conducting their experiments.
The LSS group comprises a range of instruments designed to carry out
studies on the structure of matter on a scale of one to hundreds of
nanometers. These include instruments for small-angle scattering,
reflectometry, diffraction from single crystals or one or
two-dimensionally ordered materials. The range of science covered is
very broad, from polymer and colloid science through structural
molecular biology to materials science and magnetic phenomena.*
Qualifications and experience:*
Ph.D. in physics, biophysics, chemistry or the life sciences.
We are particularly interested in highly motivated candidates with a
background in soft condensed matter or structural biology. You should
have experience in the field of neutron or X-ray small angle scattering
as well as a practical knowledge of scientific computing and an interest
in instrumentation. The post represents an excellent opportunity for a
young postdoctoral scientist to develop expertise, broaden 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.
As an international research centre, we are particularly keen to ensure
that we also attract applicants from outside France. You must have a
sound knowledge of English and be willing to learn French (a language
course will be paid for by the ILL). Knowledge of German would be an
Fixed-term contract : 60 months.
Further information can be obtained by contacting the head of the Large
Scale Structures Group: Dr. P. Timmins, tel. : +33(0)18.104.22.168.63,

*Generous company benefits (adaptation and expatriation allowance),
relocation assistance and language courses may be offered.
