Thu Aug 4 15:37:01 CEST 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:

*RESEARCH ENGINEER* *in high pressure crystallography* *(m/f)*

Under the direct supervision of the Laue instrument responsible, you 
will work closely with the members of the Diffraction and Sample 
Environment groups. In the framework of a French consortium involving 
ILL, ICMCB (Bordeaux) and University of Rennes 1, you will interact with 
teams involved in the development of new single molecule magnets, in 
particular in the field of high-pressure photomagnetism. Your duty will 
be focussed on the development of a new high pressure sample environment 
for neutron scattering studies at low temperature under light irradiation.

**/Qualifications and experience:/
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a keen interest in 
developing high pressure studies in medium pressure range for neutron 
scattering. You should have experience in material sciences, with a 
master's degree or higher. An experience in laser optics or cryogenics 
would also be greatly appreciated. Preference will be given to 
candidates with experience in neutron diffraction.

This is a fixed-term contract of 10 months (ending on 30/09/2012 at the
