Job Description:  Post-doctoral student for Neutron Scattering Data Analysis

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral appointment in computer science
in the Intense Pulsed Neutron Source Division of Argonne National
Laboratory.  Argonne is one of the preeminent multidisciplinary research
facilities in the country and is operated by the University of Chicago for
the Department of Energy.  IPNS operates a national user facility for the
neutron scattering community and is also playing a critical role in
instrument design and construction for the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS).
For a description of Divisional programs, please visit the IPNS Home Page on
the Internet: 

The successful candidate will help in the development of software for
accessing, viewing and analyzing neutron scattering data. Training and/or
experience in Java, C, C++, and object-oriented programming techniques are
needed.  Some knowledge of FORTRAN would also be desirable to aid in
interpreting older codes.  Knowledge of physics or chemistry, particularly
in the area of neutron or X-ray scattering techniques, is highly desirable.
This job will require interaction with Instrument Scientists for the IPNS
neutron scattering instruments (

The successful candidate will become part of a team that has already made
considerable progress in designing visualization and analysis software that
is portable and easy to use (  Most
programming has been done in the Java language, but some has been done in C
in order to interface with older computing systems or programming languages.
This individual will also help write software used in collection of data and
software that enables remote access to this data.

Interested candidates should submit curriculum vitae, list of references and
a short statement of their qualifications to: Thomas Worlton, IPNS-360,
Argonne National Laboratory, 9700 South Cass Avenue, Argonne, IL 60439.
Applications may also be made by Fax to 630-252-4163, or by e-mail to
