  *Instrument Scientists - Neutron Imaging
  3 Positions*


*Neutron R&D Division
Research Centre for Neutron Science and Technology

*Reference: Research 13-3
Application Deadline: 21 February 2014*

    The positions

You are invited to become part of a dynamic new team working at the
Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) of J-PARC - one
of the world's leading spallation neutron sources and one of Japan's
premier research facilities.
In its role as the "Registered Institution for Facility Utilization
Promotion", CROSS-Tokai is responsible for managing and supporting the
user program on the beamlines that are part of the Public Neutron Beam
Facility of J-PARC. The Neutron R&D Division of CROSS-Tokai currently
has over 30 research scientists, engineers and technicians dedicated to
supporting user operations on the six Public Beamlines at the MLF.
On 1 April 2014, BL22 - a newly-constructed energy-resolved neutron
imaging beamline - will become the seventh Public Beamline at the MLF
and CROSS-Tokai will assume responsibility for the user program there.
With this exciting new addition, CROSS-Tokai is looking to appoint three
(3) talented and motivated scientists to participate in the development
and operation of this state-of-the-art instrument and to provide support
to external users of the beamline.
In addition to beamline duties, the successful candidates will be
expected to conduct a high-quality research program, in collaboration
with Japanese universities, industry and overseas scientists in a field
related to or making use of advanced neutron imaging techniques...

    The Science

As the world's first dedicated pulsed-neutron imaging beamline, BL22 has
been designed and constructed to give leading-edge performance in a
variety of imaging modalities.
Using the characteristic properties of pulsed neutrons, the beamline is
optimised for high-efficiency and high-precision 3D visualization of
materials using energy-resolved techniques such as Bragg-edge, resonance
absorption and polarized neutron imaging. These techniques have broad
application in a wide range of research fields including materials and
engineering science where they have been shown to be useful for
measurements such as:

  * Crystallographic stress/strain and texture mapping;
  * Element/isotope specific imaging;
  * Thermal gradient mapping; and,
  * Magnetic field imaging.

Similarly, BL22 is capable of non-destructive 2D and 3D imaging of
materials using large area, high spatial resolution neutron radiography
and tomography.

    The applicants

Successful candidates will have (or expect to receive by the end of July
2014) a PhD in condensed-matter physics, chemistry, materials science or
a related area, have excellent interpersonal and communication skills,
and a demonstrated ability to work both independently and in teams.
Experience at large-scale research facilities such as neutron or
synchrotron sources would be an advantage.

    Level of Appointment and Salary

We are looking to appoint one (1) suitably qualified candidate at the
level of Senior or Associate Scientist to work in the role of Beamline
Group Leader.
Two (2) early-career positions are available at the level of Research
Salary and conditions will be commensurate with qualifications and

    Position Starting Date

*1 April 2014* (or as soon as possible thereafter by arrangement)

    Term of Appointment

All positions are continuing for as long as CROSS-Tokai remains the
Registered Institution for the Public Neutron Beam Facility at J-PARC.
