The Chemical and Engineering Materials Division (CEMD) of the NScD at Oak Ridge National Laboratory is seeking a highly motivated early career Instrument Scientist for the VULCAN diffractometer at the SNS. In this role you will be joining the VULCAN instrument team and provide operational support for the VULCAN diffractometer and develop a vigorous scientific program associated with the instrument. VULCAN is a world-class engineering materials diffractometer designed to tackle a broad range of problems in materials science and engineering, including in-situ deformation behavior, transient behaviors during synthesis and processing, and kinetics of multi-length scale phase transformations, and in-situ/ex-situ stress mapping in structural components, etc. For more information about this highly versatile instrument, please visit: https://neutrons.ornl.gov/vulcan
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, these facilities carry 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.
