[Neutron] Postdoc position in Sydney, Australia for Materials scientist/Mat erials physicist - closing date 19 March 2006

ROBINSON, Robert rro at ansto.gov.au
Sat Feb 4 07:00:51 CST 2006


Neutron and X-ray diffraction methods for the study of thermo-mechanical deformation processes in materials 

*	Attractive Salary Package 

*	2 Year Term

ANSTO is 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, we operate the HIFAR Research Reactor and are approaching
the completion of the new 20-MW OPAL Reactor, which will come on line in mid-2006. At the end of the year, the facility will host 8 state-of-the-art neutron instruments constructed and operated by the Bragg Institute.

We have opportunities for recent Ph. D graduates with a strong innovation focus, good communication skills and a proven publication record. We are seeking researchers who work well within small cross-disciplinary teams and can collaborate strongly with
other research groups. The fellow will work in a major new initiative applying a multidisciplinary approach to selected fundamental and industrial problems in materials research related to thermo-mechanical deformation processes. 

Thermo-mechanical processes are widely applied in industrial production chains of metals, alloys, and ceramics, and in resultant manufactured components. They also occur naturally in the crust of the earth and other geological formations. Quantities like
the crystallographic texture, residual stress, grain size, phase composition, precipitates will be measured by diffraction methods and related to the physics of the deformation process/history. 

The fellow will create and interact closely with existing research collaborators in materials physics, engineering or geology. The fellow should have experience in the application of neutron or X-ray scattering methods to investigate structures and/or
textures. The knowledge of in-situ experiments under complicated sample environment is an asset. He/she will be involved in the development of related user programs at the new facilities.

Selection criteria for the role can be found at the ANSTO Homepage <http://www.ansto.gov.au/> . Your application should address the selection criteria and include a C.V. and at least three professional referees. Alternatively contact Ms Cherylie Thorn on
+61 2 9717 9039. Please send your details to Bragg Recruitment <mailto:bragg-recruit at ansto.gov.au>
