Research Scientist 
Single-Crystal Neutron Diffraction
Instrument Scientist
Salary to $50,500 - $73,900 plus super
You're invited to be part of one of Australia's foremost scientific research and development
organisations, focused on delivering the benefits of nuclear science to the Australian community.
Based in southern Sydney, and close to the Pacific Ocean, at Lucas Heights, our neutron scattering
scientists are responsible for the operation, research use, design, and development of a range of
neutron beam instruments.
We are seeking a crystallographer to operate the existing 2tanA four-circle neutron diffractometer
at the HIFAR research reactor at ANSTO, and to conduct a high-quality research program, in
collaboration with Australian universities, industry, other ANSTO divisions and overseas scientists.
Possible areas can include chemical crystallography, crystallographic texture, diffuse scattering,
and in the future possibly scattering from biological molecules. 
Successful candidates will have a Ph.D. in crystallography, chemistry, materials science,
condensed-matter physics or a related area, excellent interpersonal and communication skills, and
demonstrated ability to work both independently and in teams. Experience at, or using, major
neutron-scattering or x-ray synchrotron facilities will be an asset.
This role is for an initial period of 3 years with possibility of renewal.
For further information about the job, or to obtain a copy of the selection criteria (below), please
contact Ms Leanore Hoddy on (02) 9717 9973 or by e-mail lkh at <mailto:lkh at> 
Written applications addressing the selection criteria, should be forwarded to The Recruitment
Officer, Physics Division, ANSTO, PMB 1, Menai NSW 2234.
More information on present and future neutron scattering activities at ANSTO can be found on the
Web at <>
If you want both career challenge and the best of the Australian lifestyle in the Olympic City of
Sydney and feel you are right for ANSTO, then send your details to neutrons at
<mailto:neutrons at> - we look forward to hearing from you.
Applications close on 22 December 2000.
