Postdoctoral fellow at Risø
The Materials Research Department at Risø National Laboratory,
Denmark, is seeking candidates for a post doc. position in the field
of Monte Carlo simulation of neutron scattering instruments
You will be member of the McStas team ( http://www.mcstas.org ),
developing a World leading package for neutron scattering
simulations. Your main task will be to develop tools for performing
virtual experiments in connection with the construction of 7 new
instruments at the ISIS neutron facility, Oxfordshire, England.
The task of virtual experiments involves converting a detailed
physical knowledge of the experimental technique into reliable and
fast computer code with a user-friendly interface.
An important task in this respect is the use and validation of
simulations of polarized neutrons. The work involves activity at Risø
and ISIS, as well as meetings elsewhere in Europe. The work will also
contain training and supervision of users and students.
* A PhD degree in physics, engineering or equivalent.
* Experience within computer simulation or software development
* Good abilities for communicating in English.
