VACANCY  RESEARCH SCIENTIST (Neutron Small Angle Scattering)  (m/f)

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 : 

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
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 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 advantage.

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@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.
