Oak Ridge, USA
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. 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.
The Neutron Sciences Directorate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate with experience and expertise in spintronics/electronics and neutron/X-ray scattering (diffraction), with a strong emphasis on the design and characterization of organic spintronic/electronic devices. This position resides in the Engineering Materials Group of the Chemical and Engineering Materials Division (EM CEMD) and benefits from strong interactions with the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) at ORNL and will comprise a diverse spectrum of nanoscience activities.
As a member of the Engineering Materials Group, major responsibilities/duties will include design and characterization of structure as well as magnetic properties of spintronic/electronic devices such as spin-valve (SV) and light emitting diode (LED) based on the heterostructures of condensed/soft matter components with high charge carrier mobility. The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary research team with expertise in polarized neutron scattering, thin film growth, materials chemistry, and device fabrication/characterization as well as, organic synthesis, and theory/simulation to explore the effect of subatomic, intermolecular and interfacial structure on the magnetotransport property of the fabricated organic spintronic devices.
