Neutron Scattering Instrument Scientists (see )
A Little to the South of Sydney, There's a New World of Neutron Beam Research
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 design, development, procurement, commissioning and research use
of a range of neutron beam instruments.
In 2001, construction of ANSTO's Replacement Research Reactor will commence. This will be a modern
purpose-built facility designed to place Australia at the forefront of research in condensed-matter
physics, chemistry, materials science, polymers, engineering, biophysics and geophysics. The new
facility will come on line in 2005. In order to exploit this opportunity fully, ANSTO is seeking to
fill a number of instrument-development positions.
Ideal candidates will have a Ph.D. in a relevant area, at least several years postdoctoral
experience at, or using, major neutron-scattering or x-ray synchrotron facilities, excellent
interpersonal and communication skills and demonstrated ability to work both independently and in
teams. Experience with instrument development will be an asset.
Each successful candidate will be expected to lead the instrument-development effort for one of the
new state-of-the-art instruments, including conceptual design, implementation and commissioning, for
completion in 2005. They will also be expected to interact strongly with in-house ANSTO research
programs, with industry and the academic community, and to build up their own scientific program of
Selection criteria for the positions are below Information on present and future neutron scattering
activities at ANSTO can be found on the Web at
Your application must address the selection criteria for the position, provide the names of three
professional referees and should be forwarded to us by e-mail to neutrons at or by mailing
to Recruitment Officer, Neutron Scattering, Physics Division, ANSTO, PMB 1, Menai, NSW, 2234,
Australia by 15 May 2001.
Fixed term appointments will be offered for these positions. The selection criteria cover Research
Scientist and Senior Research Scientist levels. However we would encourage all persons with relevant
qualifications and expertise designing and commissioning neutron scattering instruments to apply.
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 please send your details, we look forward to hearing
from you
