   Postdoctoral fellow at Risø

   The Materials Research Department at Risø National Laboratory,
   Denmark, is seeking candidates for a post doc. position in the field
   of Monte Carlo simulation of neutron scattering instruments

   Job description

   You will be member of the McStas team ( http://www.mcstas.org ),
   developing a World leading package for neutron scattering
   simulations. Your main task will be to develop tools for performing
   virtual experiments in connection with the construction of 7 new
   instruments at the ISIS neutron facility, Oxfordshire, England. 
   The task of virtual experiments involves converting a detailed
   physical knowledge of the experimental technique into reliable and
   fast computer code with a user-friendly interface.
   An important task in this respect is the use and validation of
   simulations of polarized neutrons. The work involves activity at Risø
   and ISIS, as well as meetings elsewhere in Europe. The work will also
   contain training and supervision of users and students.

     * A PhD degree in physics, engineering or equivalent.
     * Experience within computer simulation or software development
     * Good abilities for communicating in English.
     * Ability to work independent and take responsibility for progress
       and quality of projects.
     * Experience within solid state physics and/or instrumentation will
       be an advantage.
