Tue Jun 17 18:08:07 CEST 2008

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 9 other European countries. The Science Division currently has a 
vacancy for a:

*RESEARCH SCIENTIST - cristallography (m/f)*

****/Duties :/
Working within the Diffraction Group at ILL you will be involved in 
day-to-day running of a high flux neutron powder diffractometer. The 
range of science covered in the Diffraction Group is very broad going 
from structural aspects of hard condensed matter physics (structural 
phase transitions, magnetism, high pressure, etc.) to chemical 
crystallography (small and medium molecules, hydrogen bonding, etc). We 
are looking in particular for a second instrument responsible for the 
D20 diffractometer. In addition to carrying out a personal research 
programme, you will also participate in the development and operation of 
the instrument and assist ILL's visiting scientists with their 
experiments on diffraction instruments at ILL.

/Qualifications and experience:/**
Ph.D. in physics or chemistry.
We are particularly interested in highly motivated candidates with 
experience in crystallography and powder diffraction. A good knowledge 
and practise of experimental neutron scattering techniques and their 
corresponding sample environments, as well as computer programming 
skills, are highly desirable.
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.

* /Notes:
/Fixed-term contract: 5 years./
/*Generous company benefits (adaptation and expatriation allowance), 
relocation assistance and language courses may be offered.
Further information can be obtained by contacting the head of the 
Diffraction Group: Dr. J. Rodriguez-Carvajal, email: jrc at ill.fr or via 

Please submit your application on line, with a list of publications, no 
later than *14.07.2008*, via our website: http://www.ill.fr/careers 
 (Vacancy reference: *08/18*).
