we would like to announce an open position for a research scientist in
the field of structure analysis using neutron powder diffraction.
A post-doctoral position is open at the Nuclear Physics Institute in
Řež, Czech Republic, for an instrument scientist who will be responsible
for the operation and further development of the neutron powder
diffractometer MEREDIT and conducting research using neutron diffraction
in the field of condensed matter physics and material research in
collaboration with external users.
*About **Nuclear Physics Institute CAS*
Nuclear Physics Institute CAS (NPI), public research institution,
conducts research in a broad field of nuclear physics, experimental as
well as theoretical. The Department of Neutron Physics at NPI operates
several neutron scattering instruments including the neutron powder
diffractometer MEREDIT (http://neutron.ujf.cas.cz/meredit). In the frame
of CANAM infrastructure, this diffractometer serves both internal and
external users to study crystal structures in-situ under various sample
conditions (high and low temperatures, mechanical loading).
The successful candidate will be responsible for the research program at
the powder diffractometer MEREDIT, developing its capability and related
experimental methods, including in-situ techniques and data analysis
methods. This position involves collaboration with external users of the
diffractometer by providing expertise and support during experiments,
participation on data analysis and publication of results. The candidate
is also expected to develop his/her own research program in the area
related to the scientific scope of the diffractometer MEREDIT.
The duration of the fixed-term contract is up to three years (renewable
for a further period subject to performance), starting at the earliest
convenience of the successful candidate. We offer the work in a group of
motivated researchers, professional growth, and a competitive salary
(depending on experience and potential in research).
Please address specific questions to this position to: Dr. Jan Saroun,
saroun at ujf.cas.cz
Applicants are expected to have, or be working towards, a doctoral
degree (PhD) in a relevant scientific field such as material physics,
chemistry, crystallography, materials engineering or a related field.
Ability of autonomous scientific work evidenced by a publication record
in peer reviewed scientific journals, flexibility and teamwork, fluent
communication in English are all requirements. Experience with
diffraction methods and programs for Rietveld analysis is most welcome.
*How to Apply*
Please send your application including motivation letter, curriculum
vitae with a publication record, copy of diploma and/or PhD certificate
and references, by e-mail to
