Post-Doc Fellowship: Ray tracing for USANS option on SANS instruments
A postdoctoral position is available at the European Photon & Neutron (EPN) Science Campus in Grenoble (France). The EPN Science Campus is a site of excellence for cutting-edge science in several fields and it is a very exciting place to work on science, grouping in the same area three major institutes of research in Europe (Institut Laue - Langevin, European Synchrotron Radiation Facilitiy, European Molecular Biology Laboratory and their partnerships). To learn more about EPN Science Campus go to: http://www.epn-campus.eu/about-us.
The main focus of the project is to perform ray-tracing calculations, using McStas code, in order to design a tailored Ultra Small Angle Neuron Scattering (USANS) option for SANS instruments. The construction of a prototype is also planned and the candidate would be involved in the design, engineering and experimental tests.
The postdoctoral fellowship will start in the beginning of 2015 and it will be running for one year with the possibility of extension for another year.
Requirements: the candidate should be either a EU citizen or a national from a country with free circulation EU agreements. Other nationals should posses a working permit for the European Union.
Qualified candidates must have obtained a PhD degree in one of the following disciplines: Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, Materials Engineering, Chemistry Engineering, Nuclear Engineering. Knowledge in ray tracing and instrumentation design will be strongly considered. Experience in SANS and USANS measurements and publications related to them will be valuable.
We are searching for a candidate with high motivation in the development of instrumentation, having both the skills to work in a team and in an independent way.
Taking into account the international character of the project, a good knowledge of English (both written and oral) is required.
