*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 Facilities, 
European Molecular Biology Laboratory and their partnerships).

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

The postdoctoral fellowship will start as soon as possible and it will 
be running for one year.

*Requirements:*If the candidate is not an EU citizen or from a country 
with a free EU circulation agreement, he/she will need to obtain a 
French work permit.

Qualified candidates must have obtained a PhD degree in one of the 
following disciplines: Physics and/or Chemistry, Material Science, 
Material Engineering, Chemical 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 a candidate who is very motivated in the development of 
instrumentation with skills like team-working and autonomy.

Taking into account the international character of the project and the 
necessity to work with people from groups in different European 
countries, a good knowledge of English (both written and oral) is required.

If you are interested, please send as soon as possible but no later than 
middle of June 2016, an email with your CV and cover letter to both:
