The National Science Foundation (NSF) has recently provided funding to
develop conceptual and engineering designs for a new generation of
neutron-spin manipulation equipment for materials science investigations
using neutron scattering. It is expected that such equipment will enhance
the scientific impact of several spectrometers at major national user
facilities such as the Spallation Neutron Source, the NIST Center for
Neutron Research and the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center. There is an
opportunity for a postdoc to join this project, which will be centered at
the Center for the Exploration of Energy and Matter (CEEM) at Indiana
University and involve extensive interactions with the national neutron
facilities. CEEM is a multipurpose laboratory which conducts and supports
basic research in nuclear physics, nuclear chemistry, accelerator physics,
condensed matter and the life sciences. It is the site of a small,
long-pulsed neutron source (The Low Energy Neutron Source - LENS) used for
research, instrument development and education. Information about the IU
Physics Department and CEEM can be found at http://www.physics.indiana.edu
<http://www.physics.indiana.edu/> , and http://ceem.indiana.edu. The
position is available immediately and is expected to last for two years,
subject to satisfactory performance. Major duties associated with the
position will include the design, prototyping and testing of equipment for
neutron spin manipulation. There will be opportunities for the postdoc to
pursue their own research interests using polarized neutrons both at LENS
and at National Facilities. A completed Ph.D. degree is required prior to
assuming the position. Interested individuals are encouraged to contact
Professor Roger Pynn at rpynn at indiana.edu or 505-670-9708 for further
information. Candidates should submit a letter of application, a curriculum
vitae, a description of research interests and accomplishments, and a list
of publications, and they should arrange for submission of at least three
letters of reference by email to Professor Roger Pynn at rpynn at indiana.edu
<mailto:pynn at mrl.ucsb.edu>  or by mail to Professor Roger Pynn, CEEM, 2401
Milo B. Sampson Lane, Bloomington, IN 47408. Applications received before
December 1, 2010 may receive preference. Indiana University is an
Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer committed to excellence
through diversity. The University actively encourages applications from
women, minorities, and persons with disabilities.
