The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Michigan State University is
looking to fill a postdoctoral research associate position in the
local-structure-property relationship of complex oxides.  The successful
candidate will be located predominantly at the ISIS pulsed neutron
facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the UK.  The research
involves using neutron diffraction, including Pair Distribution Function
analysis, and scattering to study the relationsip of structure and local
structure to the properties of such materials as colossal
magnetoresistant manganites and high-temperature superconductors. 
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or
related subject.  Experience in neutron scattering or diffraction and
computer analysis/programming is preferred.  Deadline for applications
is April 16th, 2001 or until the position is filled.  Please send
applications, including a vita, statement of research, and at least two
letters of recommendation, to Prof. Simon J.L. Billinge, Department of
Physics and Astronomy, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI 
48824-1116 USA ( Further information
can also be obtained from Dr. Paolo Radaelli (p.g.radaelli at
Michigan State University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity
institution.  Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
