Associate Scientist / Scientist Position in Polarized Neutrons



China Spallation Neutron Source, the Institute of High Energy Physics with Chinese Academy of Sciences


Description of Institution

The China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS) is the first spallation neutron source facility in developing countries. As one of the largest science and technology infrastructure projects in China, CSNS is expected to have positive effects in promoting science, high-tech development and national security. CSNS is located in Dongguan City, roughly 100km north of Hong Kong. It provides a powerful research platform for fundamental research and high-tech development in many fields, such as materials science and technology, physics, life sciences, chemistry, resources and environment, new energy, etc. CSNS completed its CD4 in August 2018 and has entered its operation phase. Currently CSNS operates 3 neutron instruments including a powder diffractometer, a SANS and a polarized neutron reflectometer, with another 17 instruments in planning.
