[Neutron] Vacancy for a Research Scientist at ILL

ILL Recruitment recruitment at ill.fr
Thu Mar 1 16:46:10 CST 2007

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

*RESEARCH SCIENTIST **(neutron small angle scattering)  (m/f)*

Working within the *Large Scale Structures (LSS) Group* in the field of 
*Neutron Small Angle Scattering* you will be involved in the day-to-day 
running, as well as the longer term development, of the D11 and D22 
small-angle scattering instruments. You will be expected to carry out 
your own research programme, as well as assisting ILL users in 
conducting their experiments.
The LSS group comprises a range of instruments designed to carry out 
studies on the structure of matter on a scale of one to hundreds of 
nanometers. These include instruments for small-angle scattering, 
reflectometry, diffraction from single crystals or one or 
two-dimensionally ordered materials. The range of science covered is 
very broad, from polymer and colloid science through structural 
molecular biology to materials science and magnetic phenomena.*
Qualifications and experience:*
Ph.D. in physics, biophysics, chemistry or the life sciences.
We are particularly interested in highly motivated candidates with a 
background in soft condensed matter or structural biology. You should 
have experience in the field of neutron or X-ray small angle scattering 
as well as a practical knowledge of scientific computing and an interest 
in instrumentation. The post represents an excellent opportunity for a 
young postdoctoral scientist to develop expertise, broaden experience 
and interact with leading scientists from around the world. Applications 
from more experienced scientists who are able to obtain a secondment 
period from their home institute will also be considered.

*Language skills:*
As an international research centre, we are particularly keen to ensure 
that we also attract applicants from outside France. You must have a 
sound knowledge of English and be willing to learn French (a language 
course will be paid for by the ILL). Knowledge of German would be an 
Fixed-term contract : 60 months.
Further information can be obtained by contacting the head of the Large 
Scale Structures Group: Dr. P. Timmins, tel. : +33(0), 
e-mail: timmins at ill.fr or via http://www.ill.fr/lss.
*Generous company benefits (adaptation and expatriation allowance), 
relocation assistance and language courses may be offered.

//*How to apply:*
Please submit your application on-line, with a list of publications, no 
later than *10.04.2007*, via our website: 
http://www.ill.fr/vacancies.html  (vacancy reference* 07/09)*.

/ //In line with our policy of Equal Opportunities, we encourage both 
men and women with relevant qualifications to apply./
