Postdoctoral position at the MIT Nuclear Reactor
Employer
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Job description
There is a position for a postdoctoral associate to join the MIT Research Reactor (MITR), the primary experimental facility of Nuclear Reactor Laboratory and one of five U.S High-Performance Research Reactors. MITR is developing high-efficiency neutron diffractometers suitable for both large national neutron facilities and small university research reactors and building a novel high-resolution neutron diffractometer. Unlike existing powder and engineering diffractometers, which operate with monochromatic beam, MITR will use polychromatic beam and multiple bent perfect crystal analyzers. The use of the polychromatic beam will allow combining several analyzers to increase the signal rate or allow to measure several components of the stress tensor at once. Will participate in all aspects of the instrument building, testing, and demonstration. The work will include finalizing the design, assembling instrument components (focusing analyzers, position-sensitive detectors, oscillating collimators, etc.), enabling the instrument-control software, testing, and commissioning of the facility. MITR is also designing a focusing SANS diffractometer which will use axisymmetric focusing mirrors (Wolter mirrors) to enable a compact SANS instrument suitable for a university-based research reactor. This project will require ray-tracing optimization of the design parameters of the mirrors and other beam-conditioning optics and conducting initial tests.

Job description
ESS is now looking for a Head of Division for Neutron Scattering Systems (NSS) Projects, organised within the Technical Directorate. The successful candidate will also be the sub-project leader for delivery of the neutron scattering instruments that are part of the ESS construction project. The NSS Projects Division is responsible for construction and commissioning of the neutron scattering instruments for the ESS, most of which are being designed and delivered by in-kind partners. The division is comprised of six groups: Planning and Coordination; Instrument Scientist Group; Technical Projects, Detectors; Choppers; and Experiment Control & Data Curation. The scope of the division includes neutron detectors and data acquisition electronics, chopper systems, experiment control systems, electrical and service infrastructure, the neutron bunker (radiological shielding and infrastructure) surrounding the neutron source, a test beamline and delivery of the first set of neutron scattering instruments. As a substantial portion of the scope of the division is being delivered by in-kind partners from the member states, management of in-kind delivery is a major focus for this position.

25. June 2021 - European Spallation Source, ESS
Software scientist
Employer
European Spallation Source, ESS
Job description
The ESS, Data Management and Software Centre (DMSC) in Copenhagen, Denmark invites applications for a Software Scientist position. The DMSC is responsible for the design, development and construction of the computer software and hardware to be used for the operation and data analysis of the experiments to be carried out on the neutron scattering and imaging instruments to be constructed at ESS. DMSC performs work at both the ESS offices in Lund, Sweden and at the main DMSC offices in Copenhagen, Denmark. The accurate detection of neutrons is at the core of any experiment in the future ESS. The facility has invested in a sophisticated software architecture that will run on standard computing hardware to process neutron events in real time. It is written in C++ and runs on Linux operating systems. This enables better testing and verification of the algorithms that in traditional setups are embedded in dedicated hardware or FPGAs. With this framework the processing can be optimized to meet the needs of the particular neutron instrument, which can be expressed in spatial resolution, signal or background count rate among other performance indicators. It is important to ensure that users can trust the system to record all relevant data accurately and reliably.
