TheIndiana University Center for the Exploration of Energy and Matter (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, including a CV, a list of publications, a statement of research, and three references, should be submitted through the application portal located at http://indiana.peopleadmin.com/postings/6062.Questions regarding the position or application process can be directed to Prof. Roger Pynn (email@example.com). For more information about the group research, see http://www.indiana.edu/~lens/research.html
Required: 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.
The position is available immediately. The initial Postdoctoral Associate appointment will be for 1 year, with the expectation for renewal for an additional 2 years, contingent on funding.
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.
Applications for postdoctoral positions are accepted on a continuing basis, and starting dates can be adjusted to suit the candidates.
About The Center for Exploration of Energy and Matter
The Center for Exploration of Energy and Matter (CEEM) is a multi-disciplinary laboratory performing research (experimental and theoretical) and development in the areas of accelerator physics, nuclear physics and chemistry, and materials research. Research experiences are available to high school through post-doctoral students. The facility is supported by Indiana University, state and federal grants, and user fees and contracts. The laboratory is staffed by highly trained scientific, technical, and administrative staff members and serves approximately 80 on-site graduate students, postdoctoral research fellows and physics faculty members. In addition, research and development activities are carried out by scientists and students from around the world.
A common element throughout the CEEM programs is the use of particle accelerators. The nuclear physics and chemistry programs are now carried out using accelerators at a number of national and international laboratories; however the local facility continues to operate several accelerators used in the other aspects of the program. The laboratory accelerator facilities are available for use by academic or commercial institutions.
