The Indiana University Center for the Exploration of Energy and Materials (CEEM), together with the Indiana University Physics Department, is seeking a post-doctoral fellow to develop neutron scattering techniques applied to quantum information and quantum materials.
CEEM houses a small accelerator based neutron source called the Low Energy Neutron Source (LENS) that focuses on the development of instrumentation such as neutron spin-echo techniques and neutron polarization filters as well as on the application of neutron scattering to a variety of scientific problems. LENS has strong partnerships with national and international neutron facilities (e.g. NCNR and SNS/HFIR in the U.S. and ISIS in the UK) and an international reputation for neutron scattering investigations and for building novel instrumentation.
Applications received by May 31st, 2019 will be given full consideration but the search will remain open until a suitable applicant is found.
Indiana University is an equal employment and affirmative action employer and a provider of ADA services. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, ethnicity, color, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or identity, national origin, disability status or protected veteran status.
Questions regarding the position or application process can be directed to Prof. Roger Pynn (firstname.lastname@example.org)
PhD or equivalent qualification in a field such as Physics, Chemistry or Engineering. Experience with neutron or synchrotron x-ray experiments and/or the development of associated instrumentation is an advantage but not a necessity. Experience in designing, building and using novel instrumentation for science experiments will be an advantage.
