Description of Institution

The Neutron Sciences Directorate (NScD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) operates the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), the United States’ highest flux reactor based neutron source, and the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS), the world’s most intense pulsed accelerator based neutron source. Together these facilities operate 30 instruments for neutron scattering research, each year carrying out in excess of 1,000 experiments in the physical, chemical, materials, biological and medical sciences for more than 3,000 visiting scientists. HFIR also provides unique facilities for isotope production and neutron irradiation. To learn more about Neutron Sciences at ORNL go to: http://neutrons.ornl.gov.

Job description

BSMD is seeking an outstanding candidate for a postdoctoral position to carry out inelastic and quasielastic neutron scattering studies of biological systems. The successful candidate will work closely with scientists at the SNS/HFIR and other ORNL-based and external researchers to study microscopic dynamics of biological systems using neutron scattering and other characterization techniques.

Major Duties/Responsibilities

  • Expected to conduct research primarily at the Spallation Neutron Source and High-Flux Isotope Reactor of ORNL. –
    Collaborates with internal and external scientists in the writing and submission of beam time proposals primarily aimed at (but not limited to) quasielastic and inelastic neutron scattering.
  • Publish scientific papers on this collaborative research
  • Present scientific results at appropriate national and international conferences
  • Physical requirements for this job include the use of hand and eye protection gear, kneeling, sitting for extended periods of time, extensive work at biological and chemical laboratories, and possible exposure to ionization radiation normally associated with operation of neutron scattering instruments for scientific research.

Requested Profile

Qualifications Required
Ph.D. in Biology, Biophysics, Biochemistry, Materials Science, Chemistry, Physics, or related fields is required. Applicants must have received their PhD within five years of this application and must complete all degree requirements before starting their appointment. Candidates must have a proven track record of published research of biological systems using quasielastic and/or inelastic neutron scattering.

Qualifications Desired:
Research experience at neutron scattering facilities would be a plus to obtain an access authorization prior to employment and subsequent reinvestigations may be required.
