*Post-Doc Fellowship: Ray tracing for USANS option on SANS instruments*

A postdoctoral position is available at the European Photon & Neutron 
(EPN) Science Campus in Grenoble (France). The EPN Science Campus is a 
site of excellence for cutting-edge science in several fields and it is 
a very exciting place to work on science, grouping in the same area 
three major institutes of research in Europe (Institut Laue -- Langevin, 
European Synchrotron Radiation Facilitiy, European Molecular Biology 
Laboratory and their partnerships). TolearnmoreaboutEPN Science Campus 
goto: http://www.epn-campus.eu/about-us.

The main focus of the project is to perform ray-tracing calculations, 
using McStas code, in order to design a tailored Ultra Small Angle 
Neuron Scattering (USANS) option for SANS instruments. The construction 
of a prototype is also planned and the candidate would be involved in 
the design, engineering and experimental tests.

The postdoctoral fellowship will start in the beginning of 2015 and it 
will be running for one year with the possibility of extension for 
another year.

*Requirements:*the candidate should be either a EU citizen or a national 
from a country with free circulation EU agreements. Other nationals 
should posses a working permit for the European Union.

Qualified candidates must have obtained a PhD degree in one of the 
following disciplines: Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, Materials 
Engineering, Chemistry Engineering, Nuclear Engineering. Knowledge in 
ray tracing and instrumentation design will be strongly considered. 
Experience in SANS and USANS measurements and publications related to 
them will be valuable.

We are searching for a candidate with high motivation in the development 
of instrumentation, having both the skills to work in a team and in an 
independent way.

Taking into account the international character of the project, a good 
knowledge of English (both written and oral) is required.
