Postdoc position in the field of high-pressure neutron scattering

The Paul Scherrer Institute is a centre for multi-disciplinary  
research and
one of the world’s leading user laboratories. With its 1200 employees it
belongs as an autonomous institution to the Swiss ETH domain and
concentrates its activities on solid-state research and material  
elementary particle and astrophysics, energy and environmental  
research as
well as on biology and medicine. The Paul Scherrer Institute operates  
Swiss neutron spallation source, SINQ, which is used to investigate
structural, electronic and magnetic correlations in a wide range of

We are currently looking for a postdoctoral fellow in the field of
high-pressure neutron scattering. The candidate is expected to actively
participate in the development and commissioning of high-pressure cells
(Paris-Edinburgh press and piston-cylinder cells) towards their  
at low-temperatures (< 10 K in the 10 GPa range). The scientific  
will partly focus on powder and single-crystal neutron diffraction  
of advanced materials that show a strong coupling between magnetism and

Experience in neutron scattering is desired but not essential. The ideal
candidate has experience in the field of strongly-correlated matter  
and in a
range of measurements techniques. Experience with high pressure  
would be advantageous. The position is limited to 2 years.
