Dear colleagues,

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).

*Job description*
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

*Requested Profile*
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
