Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL)

Oak Ridge, USA

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. 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).

Job description

Oak Ridge National Laboratory seeks to hire a team leader heading the neutron scattering data analysis and materials modeling team as part of the scientific data analysis group. Our approach is based on complementary and synergistic research activities in modeling, simulation, data analysis and experimentation. These efforts build on a long-standing collaboration between the Neutron Sciences Directorate (NScD) and the Computational and Computer Sciences Directorate (CCSD) at ORNL. The successful candidate will express and execute on a vision for research in particular areas of materials science, incorporating strengths in theory, modeling, simulation, analysis and experimental methods that emphasizes the validity of an integrated approach.

Major Duties/Responsibilities:

  • Responsible for managing a team that establishes scientific leadership to develop advanced data analysis, modeling and
    simulation methods for neutron scattering data.
  • Manage multi-disciplinary team from different ORNL Directorates and different Divisions within NScD.
  • Collaborate and work with key stakeholders to include University of Tennessee and other core universities to establish and maintain outstanding relationships.
  • Maintain and extend the outstanding and collaborative relationships between Neutron Sciences Directorate, Computational Sciences Directorate and Physical Sciences to develop a common vision for the future of modeling and simulation in materials science and neutron scattering.

Work Directions and Interfaces:
Reports to the Scientific Data Analysis Group Leader. Interfaces with facility users and stakeholders, other science group leaders within the Directorate, other ORNL groups, partner laboratories.
