Job ref: N/A

The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), situated in Grenoble, France, is Europe's leading research facility for scientific research using neutrons. We welcome over 2000 visits of scientists per year to carry out world-class research.
Are you interested in joining our international institute? We currently have a vacancy in the Science Division for a :
Research Scientist in Condensed Matter (F/M)

Within the Spectroscopy Group, IN20 is the thermal three-axis instrument with the highest polarized neutron flux world-wide. Equipped with various polarization analysis options, it is ideally suited to study magnetic excitations in the 2-90 meV range as well as their interplay with the lattice of the single crystal. The instrument is very much appreciated for its ability to detect small magnetic signals. We are constantly aiming to push its efficiency and to exploit its unique potential further.

Working on IN20, your main missions will be to:
- Co-manage the instrument,
- Provide the instrument users with support for performing their experiments and help them to collect the relevant data for their scientific problem under optimal conditions,
- Initiate development and maintenance,
- Develop your own scientific work and establish strong collaborations,
- Promote neutron science, with particular emphasis to ILL, within the scientific community and the general public.

Qualifications and experience:
- Ph.D. in condensed matter physics, or equivalent qualification.
- Experience in neutron scattering, knowledge in magnetism and crystallography, and an interest in the collective dynamics of magnetic materials.
- Practical skills in instrumentation and software development.
- Some experience with polarized neutrons is desirable.

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.

Language skills:
As an international research centre, we are particularly keen to ensure that we also 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.

Additional informations:

This post is a Fixed-term contract of 5 years
Further information can be obtained by contacting the head of the Spectroscopy Group:
Dr. Bela FARAGO, e-mail: farago@ill.fr or via this link
