An Indiana University postdoctoral position is available in the
Indiana/NIST program for the development and application of polarized 
3He-based neutron spin filters to materials science and fundamental 
physics. In the development area, we are pursuing  both metastability-exchange 
optical pumping (Indiana and NIST) and spin-exchange (NIST) to produce 
the polarized 3He gas.  Current applications in materials science include 
small angle neutron scattering at NIST and polarized neutron reflectomtery 
at the Intense Pulsed Neutron Source at Argonne National Lab. 3He-based 
spin filters can also be used in experiments involving the weak interaction 
of neutrons, and experiments in various stages of preparation intend to 
use this technology. 

The candidate will be based at the Indiana University Cyclotron Facility in
Bloomington, Indiana, with trips to the NIST Center for Neutron Research in
Gaithersburg, Maryland and/or the Argonne Intense Pulsed Neutron Source near Chicago. 
This work is quite interdiscliplinary, so applicants from the fields of AMO 
physics, nuclear physics, or neutron scattering will be considered.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in physics. The position is available
immediately, but any starting date before Dec. 2000 can be accomodated. 
Send resumes to: Mike Snow, Indiana University Cyclotron Facility, 2401 
Milo B. Sampson Ln., Bloomington, IN 47408, snow at 
Indiana University is an Equal Opportunity employer.
