The NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR), in cooperation with the 
Department of Physics at the University of Maryland, is currently seeking 
qualified candidates for two openings:  An Instrument Scientist for the 
cold triple axis instrument (SPINS), and a postdoctoral position through 
the Materials Science and Engineering Center for a person with experience 
in the general area of Colossal Magnetoresistive Oxides.  Candidates with a 
Ph.D in experimental condensed matter physics, and experience in triple 
axis spectrometry, are preferred.  Salaries are in the range of 
$40,000-$60,000 depending on qualifications and experience.

The NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) is a multi-disciplinary 
research  facility that provides modern neutron instrumentation for 
investigations in a wide range of topics in physics, chemistry, materials 
science, biology, and engineering.  The instrumentation is available 
through a formal user program, through collaborative research programs with 
NIST staff, and via cooperative research agreements and programs with 
University scientists.   For additional information on the NCNR facilities

SPINS Instrument Responsible:
An experimental condensed matter scientist is sought for the cold 
triple-axis neutron instrument. In addition to conducting independent or 
collaborative research in condensed matter science, the incumbent would 
share the responsibilities of assisting visiting researchers in carrying 
out experiments on the NCNR's Spin Polarized Inelastic Neutron Scattering 
(SPINS) spectrometer. The incumbent would be an associate of the University 
of Maryland, College Park, but would be stationed at NIST, Gaithersburg, 
Maryland. This is a two year, minimum, position with the University's full 
benefits package.

Research Associate in Colossal Magnetoresisitive Oxides
A recent Ph.D in experimental condensed matter physics is sought, with 
experience in the general area of CMR materials.  Familiarity with 
triple-axis neutron spectrometry is desired, but not essential.  No formal 
instrumental responsibilities are required, with the majority of the 
scientist's time devoted to collaborative or independent research in the 
team.  Positions are typically two to three years.
