ISIS Facility, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Oxfordshire


Three enthusiastic and motivated scientists are required for positions in
the Excitations Group at the ISIS Facility.  ISIS is the world's most
intense source of pulsed neutrons and muons, providing unique research
facilities for condensed matter science.  The Excitations Group operates
four spectrometers: HET; MARI; MAPS and PRISMA.  The scientific programme is
broad, encompassing fields such as magnetism, superconductivity, amorphous
materials, chemical spectroscopy and quantum fluids.
In addition to supporting the experimental programme on the four
spectrometers, the successful candidates will be expected to take an active
role in instrument development and to pursue a scientific research programme
making use of Excitations Group spectrometers and other instruments in the
ISIS suite. 

A PhD in the physical sciences (physics, chemistry, materials or earth
sciences) is essential, and experience of postdoctoral research and/or
inelastic neutron scattering is desirable.  A flexible approach to working
hours will be required.

The salary range is between £18,620 and £26,600 depending on qualifications
and experience (pay award pending).  A non-contributory pension scheme and a
generous leave allowance are also offered.
