Reference: Research Scientist 00/31


The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) is an international research 
institute funded by France, Germany and the United Kingdom. 
Agreements on scientific collaboration have also been signed with 
Austria, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Russia. 
The Institute operates the most powerful source of neutrons in the 
world, a 58 MW reactor, which was completely refurbished in 1995. The 
reactor forms the basis for a programme of research covering a wide 
variety of fields, supplying neutrons to a broad range of instruments 
which are available to scientists from the member countries.

The ILL has an opening for :

A Scientist in the Three Axis Spectrometer (TAS) Group

The successful candidate will be a highly motivated scientist having 
a PhD in solid state physics or chemistry, an interest in 
instrumentation and some previous experience with neutron scattering, 
preferably in the fields of magnetism and polarised neutrons.

He/she will be expected to carry out his/her own research programme 
and participate in the operation and development of the relevant 
instrument. He/she will assist the first instrument responsible on 
the polarised beam three-axis spectrometer IN20, which is presently 
being rebuilt with the aim to achieve a significant increase in 
luminosity. His/her specific assignments will concern the spherical 
polarimetry (CRYOPAD) and/or spin-echo (TASSE) options on the 
instrument. In addition, he/she will be expected to carry out -on a 
regular basis- "local contact" duties on the other instruments in the 
TAS Group.

The successful candidate will be offered a fixed-term contract, the 
duration of which will under no circumstances exceed five (5) years. 
In addition to a competitive salary, certain benefits (reimbursement 
of removal expenses, adaptation allowance, etc.) may be offered.
