Wed Mar 23 10:23:56 CET 2011

The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), situated in Grenoble, France, is 
Europe's leading research facility for fundamental research using 
neutrons. The ILL operates the brightest neutron source in the world, 
reliably delivering intense neutron beams to 40 unique scientific 
instruments. The Institute welcomes more than 2000 visiting scientists 
per year to carry out world-class research in solid-state physics, 
crystallography, soft matter, biology, chemistry and fundamental 
physics. Funded primarily by its three founder members: France, Germany 
and the United Kingdom, the ILL has also signed scientific collaboration 
agreements with 12 other countries. The Science Division currently has a 
vacancy for a:


**The ILL's Diffraction Group is currently seeking a scientist to lead 
the group's activities in single crystal neutron diffraction and 
polarised neutrons.
You will develop a scientific programme, in collaboration with external 
users, in at least one of the following fields: strongly correlated 
electron systems (heavy fermions, superconductivity, giant 
magneto-resistance, metal insulator transitions, etc), multiferroics, 
spin densities, magnetic frustrated systems. You will be expected to 
contribute to ongoing technical and instrumental work as well as to the 
development and preparation of proposals for new initiatives. You will 
be expected to assume responsibility for user support on specific ILL 
instruments (in particular D3 and D10).You should be able to participate 
in software development for single crystal data treatment and contribute 
actively to a dynamic, multidisciplinary research group.

/Qualifications and experience:
**/You hold a PhD in condensed matter physics or an equivalent field and 
have at least ten years of postdoctoral research experience in neutron 
You are able to show:

    * strong experience in magnetism, crystallography and neutron
    * a record of technical excellence and achievement in neutron
      scattering studies of magnetic materials, as reflected in
      peer-reviewed publications and presentations at internationally
      recognised conferences
    * familiarity with a range of neutron scattering techniques and
      experience with the execution of neutron experiments at low
      temperatures, high magnetic fields and high pressures
    * familiarity with theory in the field and appropriate data analysis
    * excellence in communication (written and verbal) and interpersonal
    * reliability and an ability to work efficiently, conscientiously,
      and professionally in a team environment
    * proven collaborative research experience, and an ability to
      establish effective and productive partnerships.

*This post is permanent.
Generous company benefits (adaptation and expatriation allowance), 
relocation assistance and language courses may be offered.
