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

ultra-high resolution gamma-ray spectroscopy, where ppm resolution 
experiments are conducted with applications in nuclear structure 
research and fundamental physics. In addition to carrying out your own 
research programme, you will be responsible for assisting ILL's visiting 
scientists helping them to carry out and further develop their experiments.

*Qualifications and experience:*
Ph.D. in physics.
We are particularly interested in highly motivated candidates with a 
solid knowledge in gamma-ray spectroscopy and nuclear structure 
research. Interest in development of instrumentation is also essential.
The post represents an excellent opportunity for young postdoctoral 
scientists 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
