Development of the Neutron Transmission Method for Engineering & Materials

Research Fellowship
A fellowship in the Fracture Research Group, funded by the EPSRC, is
available for a post-doctoral candidate with a background in Physics,
Materials Science, or a related subject.  The post will run until July 14,
2001. The successful candidate will join a research team led by Dr Lyndon
Edwards concerned with neutron strain scanning of Advanced Materials and
Structures.  The project is to develop a transmission instrument and
associated software capable of measuring lattice spacings of samples in
transmission with an accuracy better than 100x10-6.

The instrument is being developed at ISIS, the world’s brightest pulsed
neutron source which is based at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near
Oxford and the work is being undertaken in collaboration with Prof. Phil
Withers and co-workers at The University of Manchester.  Familiarity with
diffraction-based crystallography and/or Reitveld methods would be
desirable.  Informal enquiries may be made through Dr Edwards on + 44 1908

An appointment of Research Fellow will be made on the 1A scale, within the
range, £16,775 to £25,213 according to age, qualifications and experience.
