Research fellow position
Institute of Nuclear Physics ASCR,v.v.i. is seeking for a research fellow for radiobiology experimental studies in the Department of Radiation Dosimetry
- Ph.D. (or equivalent) in cell biology and biochemistry, radiation biophysics or similar domain
- experience with cell radiobiology techniques (work with cell cultures, Elisa, blotting methods)
- publication activity
- ability of independent thinking
- leadership of undergraduate and graduate students
Independent research should focus on the mechanisms triggering the early cellular response to irradiation by low doses of radiation, radiobiological efficiency of high LET particles and correlation between microdosimetry characteristics of deposited energy and cell radiation damage.
- full time contract for 2 years with a possibility of prolongation
- work in academic environment
- flexible working time
Beginning of the contract
- 1st June 2013
Applications including CV, list of publications and at least two letters of recommendation should be sent before the 21st April 2013 to email@example.com, or by ground mail to:
Nuclear Physics Institute ASCR,
Dept. of Radiation Dosimetry,
Na Truhlářce 39/64,
180 00 Praha 8,
of neutron diffractometer dedicated to strain/stress characterization.
The Nuclear Physics Institute ASCR, public research institution, is a member of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. With about 250 employees, it hosts the user infrastructure CANAM, which includes also Neutron Physics Laboratory (NPL). The Laboratory combines expertise in the field of materials science with the power of neutron physics. The Neutron Physics Laboratory operates the user facilities which are open to both national and international guest scientists.
The Neutron Physics Laboratory at the Nuclear Physics Institute, Řež near Prague, Czech Republic, invites applications for an Instrument Scientist in neutron diffraction field. The position is open to candidates who have (or be about to receive) a PhD in physics, chemistry, material science and engineering or related areas, and have a proven record of experience with experimental research in materials science. A background in neutron or X-ray diffraction is highly desirable. The candidate should preferably have good communication skills.
The successful candidate will participate in the research and development work associated with neutron scattering instrumentation at the neutron diffractometers dedicated to strain/stress characterization. Responsibilities include cooperating with visiting researchers in conducting experiments and reducing data in subjects like micro- or macro-strain characterization in materials (e.g. welded metals) in the frame of the CANAM Open Access user program. At NPL laboratory of CANAM, at least 40% of the instrument beam time is reserved for external research proposals. She/he will also participate in the instrument development as well as in equipment and software upgrade projects at the diffractometer. Instrument Scientist is also expected to develop research program (preferably in the field of stress/strain characterization and related topics) using the diffractometer and/or other facilities at NPL.
Timescale of appointment:
The appointment will initially be for three years with the possibility of extension (subject to satisfactory performance).
For informal inquiries, please contact: Dr. Pavel Strunz (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Closing date for applications: 22 April 2013. Applicants should send a letter of application, a detailed academic C.V., a list of publications, the contact details of at least two academic referees and copies of degrees to Pavel Strunz, Nuclear Physics Institute, ONF, CZ-25068 Řež near Prague, Czech Republic, phone: +420-2-6617-2034, fax: +420-2-2094-0141, e-mail: email@example.com
