_Vacancy for a Research Scientist at ILL_

The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), situated in Grenoble, France, is 
Europe's leading research facility for fundamental research using 
neutrons. The ILL operates the brightest neutron source in the world, 
reliably delivering intense neutron beams to 40 unique scientific 
instruments. The Institute welcomes 1500 visiting scientists per year to 
carry out world class research in solid state physics, crystallography, 
soft matter, biology, chemistry and fundamental physics. Funded 
primarily by its three founder members: France, Germany and the United 
Kingdom, the ILL has also signed scientific collaboration agreements 
with 8 other European countries. The Science Division currently has an 
opening in its Diffraction Group for a: RESEARCH SCIENTIST (M/F).******

The post represents an excellent opportunity for a young post-doctoral 
scientist to develop his/her expertise, broaden his/her experience and 
interact with leading scientists from around the world. Applications 
from more experienced scientists on detachment would also be welcome.

The successful candidate will be co-responsible for the polarised 
neutron diffractometer D3 (http://www.ill.fr/YellowBook/D3). He/she 
should have a wider interest in magnetic structures, spin densities and 
the use of polarised neutrons. In addition to carrying out a personal 
research programme and establishing scientific collaborations, he/she 
will assist ILL’s visiting scientists with their experiments on D3 and 
other ILL instruments. He/she will also participate in the operation and 
development of D3.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in physics, chemistry or 
similar field, a good knowledge of crystallography and experience of 
single crystal diffraction methods.

The successful candidate will be offered a fixed-term contract, the 
duration of which will not exceed five (5) years. In addition to a 
competitive salary, certain benefits (reimbursement of removal expenses, 
adaptation allowance, etc.) may be offered.
Further information on the ILL Diffraction group can be obtained from 
the World Wide Web (http://www.ill.fr/dif/) or by contacting: Dr. Anne 
Stunault (stunault at ill.fr <mailto:stunault at ill.fr>) or Dr. Juan 
Rodríguez-Carvajal, (jrc at ill.fr) <mailto:jrc at ill.fr>

An application with curriculum vitae, a list of publications and the 
names of two academic referees should be sent no later than 
*31.05.2006*, quoting reference 06/23, preferably in electronic form to: 
guillermet at ill.fr <mailto:guillermet at ill.fr> or posted to:

Dr. Juan Rodríguez-Carvajal, Head of the Diffraction Group
B.P. 156 - 38042 GRENOBLE CEDEX 9 – France
