Abstract The Kohn variational method is used with a configuration-interaction-type wave function to determine the J=0 and J=1 phase shifts and annihilation parameter Z(eff) for positron-hydrogenic ion scattering. The phase shifts are within 1-2% of the best previous calculations. The values of Z(eff) are small and do not exceed unity for any of the momenta considered. At thermal energies Z(eff) is minute with a value of order 10(-50) occurring for He+ at k=0.05a(0)(-1). In addition to the variational calculations, analytic expressions for the phase shift and annihilation parameters within the Coulomb wave Born approximation are derived and used to help elucidate the dynamics of positron collisions with positive ions.
