_Vacancy for a Research Scientist_

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 9 other European countries.
The Science Division currently has a vacancy for a:*

*- Structural biology -*

**There is currently an opening in the *Large Scale Structures group* of 
the ILL for a scientist interested in the structure of biological 
macromolecules to work in the field of *neutron protein crystallography* 
using the image plate diffractometer 
LADI(http://www.ill.fr/YellowBookCDrom/data/6_5_5.pdf). A new improved, 
version of the diffractometer, LADI3, has recently been delivered and 
will be commissioned in the coming months.

The post, which is offered on a fixed-term basis, represents an 
excellent opportunity for a young postdoctoral scientist to develop his 
expertise, broaden his experience and interact with leading scientists 
from around the world. More experienced scientists on detachment will 
also be considered.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD and have experience in 
biological crystallography and an interest in both instrumental and 
software development in this field. He/she will be jointly responsible 
for the development and operation of the instrument in collaboration 
with personnel from the EMBL. The ILL is an active partner with EMBL, 
ESRF and IBS in the Partnership for Structural Biology (PSB) a dynamic 
on-site collaboration between several Grenoble-based institutes. The 
presence within this partnership of a new facility for /in vivo/ 
Deuteration will give the successful candidate the opportunity of 
carrying out his/her own research in the best-equipped environment for 
biological neutron diffraction in the world.

The successful candidate will be offered a fixed-term contract, the 
duration of which will under no circumstances exceed five (5) years. In 
addition to a competitive salary, certain benefits (reimbursement of 
removal expenses, adaptation allowance, etc.) may be offered.
