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.
Arthur Holly Compton Professor
& Chair of the Physics Department
St. Louis, MO 63130 "
*Open Position Announcement*
*Postdoctoral Research Associate*
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*
*One Brookings Drive***
*St. Louis**, MO 63130***
