Please let me draw your attention on the following job opportunities

Jülich Center for Neutron Science (JCNS) is looking for
3 Physicists
For planning and design work on neutron scattering instruments for the
upcoming European Spallation Source (ESS) we are searching 3 scientists
with a strong background in physics.
The work is part of the German contribution to the “Design-update phase”
of the ESS and will be executed in Jülich. The tasks comprise the
conceptual layout and design of neutron diffractometers and
spectrometers that may be build at the ESS and their optimisation to the
parameters of the long pulse spallation neutron source ESS. After an
initial layout phase using analytical considerations further assessment
of concepts and designs shall be conducted using computer simulation
codes (e.g. McStas and VITESS). For the verification of certain results
experiments at existing instruments and test beam lines in Garching
(FRMII), Berlin (HZB) and Oak Ridge (SNS) can be performed. The project
requires close collaboration and information exchange with the ESS-AB
organization in Lund (Sweden).
Introduction into the field and support by experienced scientists and
engineers in Jülich will be given throughout.
Qualifications and skills required:
A university degree plus a PhD in physics; ability to work in an
interdisciplinary and international team; ability to work on your own
initiative; ability to collaborate with research groups from FZJ and
external users; knowledge on the field of scattering experiments or
optics; computer skills, in particular knowledge of C/C++; willingness
to travel to other institutions and facilities for information exchange
and experiments.
