CENTER FOR THE EXPLORATION OF ENERGY AND MATTER                                                                                                                            


The National Science Foundation (NSF) has recently provided funding to develop conceptual and engineering designs for a new generation of neutron-spin manipulation equipment for materials science investigations using neutron scattering. It is expected that such equipment will enhance the scientific impact of several spectrometers at major national user facilities such as the Spallation Neutron Source, the NIST Center for Neutron Research and the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center. There is an opportunity for a postdoc to join this project, which will be centered at the Center for the Exploration of Energy and Matter (CEEM) at Indiana University and involve extensive interactions with the national neutron facilities. CEEM is a multipurpose laboratory which conducts and supports basic research in nuclear physics, nuclear chemistry, accelerator physics, condensed matter and the life sciences. It is the site of a small, long-pulsed neutron source (The Low Energy Neutron Source – LENS) used for research, instrument development and education. Information about the IU Physics Department and CEEM can be found at, and The position is available immediately and is expected to last for two years, subject to satisfactory performance. Major duties associated with the position will include the design, prototyping and testing of equipment for neutron spin manipulation. There will be opportunities for the postdoc to pursue their own research interests using polarized neutrons both at LENS and at National Facilities. A completed Ph.D. degree is required prior to assuming the position. Interested individuals are encouraged to contact Professor Roger Pynn at or 505-670-9708 for further information. Candidates should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a description of research interests and accomplishments, and a list of publications, and they should arrange for submission of at least three letters of reference by email to Professor Roger Pynn at or by mail to Professor Roger Pynn, CEEM, 2401 Milo B. Sampson Lane, Bloomington, IN 47408. Applications received before December 1, 2010 may receive preference. Indiana University is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer committed to excellence through diversity.
