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 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. The Computing and Computational Sciences Directorate (CCSD) in ORNL is home to some of the world’s most advanced supercomputing infrastructures (For more: https://www.olcf.ornl.gov).
The Instrument Projects and Development Group in the Instrument and Source Division (ISD) has an immediate opening for a post-doctoral research associate. Applications are sought from creative and motivated individuals who will develop a research program in diffraction and inelastic studies of high-temperature liquids in both normal and super-cooled phases employing a newly developed Neutron Electrostatic Levitator (NESL). This research is expected to be highly collaborative both with scientists within ORNL and external partners. A significant amount of effort will be devoted to improving the performance and availability of NESL.
In this role you will work with the Instrumentation Project and Development group, sample environment team, the NOMAD,
ARCS, and CNCS instrument teams, as well as non-ORNL partners to:
