Wed Jun 6 16:55:44 CDT 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

*RESEARCH SCIENTIST (m/f) - Nuclear physics -*
Working within the *Nuclear and Particle Physics (NPP) Group, *you will
be responsible for the nuclear physics instrument PN3 (GAMS) for
ultra-high resolution gamma-ray spectroscopy, where ppm resolution
experiments are conducted with applications in nuclear structure
research and fundamental physics. In addition to carrying out your own
research programme, you will be responsible for assisting ILL's visiting
scientists helping them to carry out and further develop their experiments.
*Qualifications and experience:*
Ph.D. in physics.
We are particularly interested in highly motivated candidates with a
solid knowledge in gamma-ray spectroscopy and nuclear structure
research. Interest in development of instrumentation is also essential.
The post represents an excellent opportunity for young postdoctoral
scientists 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
