INSTRUMENT SCIENTIST - Time-of-Flight Neutron Spectroscopy
* Competitive salary package
* Leading edge Research

ANSTO is one of Australia's foremost scientific research and development
organisations, focused on delivering the benefits of nuclear science to
the Australian community. Based in Sydney, we have recently commenced
operation of the new 20 MW OPAL Reactor along with its initial suite of
9 instruments, and have built up our team of scientists at the Bragg
Institute to the point that we are the leading group of neutron
scatterers in the Southern Hemisphere.

We are seeking an instrument scientist to join our team commissioning
and operating the new cold-neutron time-of-flight spectrometer, PELICAN.
This state-of-the-art chopper instrument has a large 2-dimensional
position-sensitive detector array, mounted in a fully automated moveable
vacuum chamber. It is designed for studies of a wide range of scientific
problems, mainly involving jump or diffusive motions in systems
containing hydrogen (or light atoms), vibrational densities of states,
and the dynamics of magnetic materials.

Successful candidates will be expected to conduct a high-quality
research program, in collaboration with Australian universities,
industry, other ANSTO divisions and overseas scientists.  Possible areas
can include physics, chemistry, materials science and biology. 

Successful candidates will have a Ph.D. in condensed-matter physics,
chemistry, materials science, biology or a related area, excellent
interpersonal and communication skills, and demonstrated ability to work
both independently and in teams.  Experience at, or using, major
neutron-scattering or x-ray synchrotron facilities will be a strong
