The Materials Science & Engineering Department at the University of 
Illinois at Urbana Champaign  (UIUC) invites applications for a 
postdoctoral research associate to conduct x-ray microbeam diffraction 
experiments at the Advanced Photon Source (APS), Argonne National 
Laboratory.  Candidates must have an earned Ph.D. degree in science or 
engineering, and must be within five year from the degree date. This is 
an opportunity for a motivated individual to contribute to the 
development of an important emerging area of materials research with 
access to unique experimental instrumentation.  Knowledge of x-ray 
materials characterization and synchrotron radiation techniques is 
desirable.  Expertise with computer programming, electronic interfacing 
and a willingness to develop new, interactive data collection and 
analysis approaches is essential.  The candidate will work closely with a 
team of scientists from UIUC and from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory 
(ORNL) to investigate the structure and evolution of materials on 
mesoscopic length scales using x-ray microbeam diffraction and 
fluorescence.  The candidate will coordinate experiments with faculty at 
UIUC and will collaborate closely with scientists at UIUC, APS and ORNL.  
The initial appointment will be for one year with the possibility of 
renewal.  The opening is immediate with application deadline on April 1, 
2000, or until the position is filled. A resume and three letters of 
recommendation should be sent to Mr. Jay Menacher, Department of 
Materials Science and Engineering, University of Illinois, 1304 West 
Green Street, Urbana Il 61801.
