I am looking to fill a post-doctoral position to start the construction of a novel facility that will be located at the
SNS.  The add is attached to this email.  If interested, please send me your CV and description of relevant experience.


Ken Kelton

Arthur Holly Compton Professor
& Chair of the Physics Department
Washington University
St. Louis, MO  63130 "


  *Open Position Announcement*


  *Postdoctoral Research Associate* 

*Job Description*
A postdoctoral research associate position is available in the Physics 
Department at Washington University for immediate occupation.  Primarily 
responsibilities are the design, construction and implementation of a 
novel electrostatic levitation facility that will be used for neutron 
studies of supercooled liquids (Neutron Electrostatic Levitation, or 
NESL, facility). When completed, NESL will allow unprecedented studies 
of the structure and dynamics of metallic liquids. 
The successful candidate for this position will work with Professor Ken 
Kelton and two graduate students in his research group to construct the 
NESL.  The facility will be constructed in the Physics Department at 
Washington University. The postdoctoral research associate will 
coordinate with members of Professor Alan Goldman's research group at 
Iowa State University, to integrate key subunits (for which they are 
responsible) into the NESL facility.  When completed, the NESL facility 
will be installed at the Spallation Neutron Source for operation.  
During installation and testing the postdoctoral research associate will 
work with Dr. Xun-Li Wang (Leader of the Powder Diffraction Group at the 
SNS) and with members of Professor Takeshi Egami's research group 
(University of Tennessee). 
A PhD in experimental physics, materials science, or a related area is 
required.  Preference will be given to candidates with prior experience 
in instrument design and construction.  An ability to work as a member 
of a team is essential.
This is a full-time position with paid vacation and fringe benefits.  
The salary will be *$*40,000 to $60,000 commensurate with education and 
Screening of applications will begin immediately.  Interested persons 
should send a letter of application, current vita, description of 
experimental skills, and two letters of recommendation to:
*Prof. Ken Kelton*
*Department of Physics, Campus Box 1105*
