*_Vacancy: Leader for the Nuclear and Particle Physics Group 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 1700 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 Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Russia, Spain, 
Switzerland and Sweden.

The ILL invites applications for the position of Leader for the Nuclear 
and Particle Physics Group in its Science Division. The post represents 
an excellent opportunity for an outstanding scientist to develop his/her 
scientific stature and interact with leading scientists from around the 

Nuclear and Particle Physics instruments at ILL provide neutrons to an 
extremely broad community of users in nuclear and particle physics and 
their applications. The Nuclear and Particle Physics Group operates four 
facilities exploiting the full spectrum of thermal, cold and ultra-cold 
neutrons available at ILL. Two of its instruments are dedicated to 
nuclear physics studies while the two others are dedicated to low energy 
particle physics with neutrons. The Nuclear and Particle Physics Group 
has a long history of world leader in   instrumentation.

The highly motivated group leader will:

    *  Manage the scientific and technical staff in the Nuclear and
      Particle Physics Group;
    * Anticipate and propose  instrumentation developments;
    * Encourage in-house research within the Nuclear and Particle
      Physics Group;
    * Have an active personal research programme;
    * Liaise with other instrument groups at ILL and at other neutron

 The successful candidate will:

    *  Have a distinguished research record in low energy particle physics;
    * Have a broad background and high interest in nuclear structure
    * Be experienced in neutron experimental techniques;
    * Be experienced in scientific, personnel and budget management;
    * Possess a full command of written and spoken English (and, if
      possible, a basic command of French; German would be an asset).

The successful candidate will be offered a permanent contract. In 
addition to a competitive salary, certain benefits (reimbursement of 
removal expenses, adaptation allowance, etc.) may be offered.
