GNeuS - Global Neutron Scientists

Research with neutrons, with its interdisciplinary approach, is indispensable for modern science. The neutron community is nowadays facing an important task to ensure long-term perspectives, that essentially depend on its ability to create a new generation of innovative highly-skilled researchers.

To tackle this challenge, Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ), the Technical University Munich (TUM) and the Helmholtz Zentrum Hereon (HEREON), partners at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ), are committed to train young neutron scientists through the establishment of a well-structured post-doctoral research programme. The programme offers a strong interdisciplinary and intersectoral approach and a global network in cooperation with present and future world-leading neutron sources, such as the European Spallation Source (ESS).

The project started on 1st September 2021, and will end on 31 August 2026.

Three GNeuS Calls have been launched and 45 post-doc positions of 24 months each were offered.
