Post Doctoral Fellowship

Post Doctoral Fellowship 
Magnetic phase transitions as a tool for early stage detection of
radiation damages in materials

2 year term (with possible 1 year extension)
Salary range: A$72,358 (plus 15.4% superannuation)
* 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.
The Bragg Institute and the Institute for Materials Engineering at ANSTO
are currently seeking a Post Doctoral Fellow to undertake research in a
joint project. This project proposes to analyze paramagnetic and
ferromagnetic defects created by irradiation in otherwise
diamagnetic/paramagnetic crystals and to relate the changes in the
magnetic properties to the measured crystal properties in order to
evaluate the production of point defects, clusters and in certain cases
the crystalline to amorphous fraction. 
The key point of the proposed study will be to understand the evolution
of the magnetic properties induced by irradiation defect formation at an
early stage in a range of nuclear and technologically relevant
materials. A major outcome will be to provide fundamental understanding
of the type, number of defects, and formation dynamics by means of a
combination of experiments, with neutron scattering, synchrotron and
laboratory based techniques, and numerical simulations. 
The successful candidate will have recently been awarded a Ph.D
(Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or related fields) with no more
than three years relevant Post-Doctoral experience, and ideally have
experience with neutron scattering techniques and/or with synchrotron
radiation and/or magnetism. Candidates must have an established
publication track record in peer reviewed scientific journals.

To be eligible for appointment, applicants will require a security and
medical assessment.
More information on the Research Proposal is available below, as is the
Position Information Package.
Applications must be submitted online, should include details of three
(3) references and a complete list of refereed publications, invited
talks, and research grants held.

For more information on how to apply, please contact Joanne Olma on +61
2 9717 9402. For further technical information on the research project,
please contact Dr Paolo Imperia by e-mail (paolo.imperia at ansto.gov.au)
or by phone on +61 2 9717 3330.
Applications close: 14 November 2010
