Instrument Scientist - Small Angle Neutron Scattering


The Science Directorate at the European Spallation Source (ESS) in Lund,
Sweden, invites applications for an Instrument Scientist, specialising
in Small Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS) Instrumentation.


Description of position

The instrument suite at ESS will be developed in close collaboration
with the user community and the successful candidate is expected to
consult with this community while preparing the design and scientific
case of the SANS instruments. The successful candidate will be expected
to prioritize, initiate and lead relevant projects in order to satisfy
these objectives. Instrument scientists at ESS have the opportunity to
imagine new ideas for instruments that will bring the largest gains in
instrumentation performance in order to address cutting edge science.


Up to half the time of the selected candidate will be devoted to pursue
their own research at operating neutron research centres. Synergies with
the neighbouring MAX-IV synchrotron as well as strong links with
universities will be encouraged. For especially well-qualified
candidates joint appointment at a university in an ESS partner country
may be possible.



Minimum qualifications are a Ph.D. or equivalent advanced degree in
physics, chemistry or biology, experience with neutron instrumentation
and neutron science. Preference will be given to those candidates with a
recognised international profile in research and direct hands on
experience in developing and constructing neutron scattering
instrumentation and especially SANS instruments.


The successful candidate will be part of the ESS team and lead
collaborations on a European level, you therefore must possess excellent
communication and written skills in English in order to liaise with
different parties relevant for the success of ESS. Knowledge of other
European languages is an advantage.


Description of department

The ESS project has Final Preparatory Phase for design before
construction. Neutron instruments are critical components of ESS. New
instrument designs should be developed to take full advantage of the
time structure of neutron pulses at ESS. The primary aim of the
Instruments Division is to develop new SANS instrumentation concepts for
the long neutron pulses that will be generated at the ESS, as well as
contribute to the specifications and design of laboratories that will
support the scientific program of these instruments.



Terms of contract will be based on qualifications and relevant


Start date

To be discussed, but a desirable start date would be June 1, 2011.


Application & Contact

Please provide your curriculum vitae and covering letter in English by
entering http://www.ess-scandinavia.eu/open-positions. It is a
requirement of our application process that the names and contacts
details (e-mail address and phone number) of three references be
provided. The deadline for applications is 18th February 2011. We intend
to carry out the first stage interviews on the 4th of April 2011, so
please note this in your calendar.
