Long Island, New York, USA
The Nuclear Science and Technology Department has an opening for a Data Analysis Specialist in the Materials in a Radiation Environment Program Office to participate in the data analysis of high-energy x-ray techniques, including scattering, spectroscopy and imaging. The data analyst will use commercial software packages, open source software and NSLS-II specific applications to collect, process and analyze data from the NSLS-II for the nuclear energy materials science community. Python programming will be used to develop stand-alone applications, scripts and GUI’s for automating the data analysis processes. MRE will be installing an X-ray Diffraction Computed Tomography System that will require development of reconstruction and imaging techniques. High-throughput and in situ experiments require automated analysis techniques.
The mission of the Materials in a Radiation Environment (MRE) Program Office within the Nuclear Science and Technology Department is to increase access to synchrotron characterization techniques to researchers studying materials for nuclear energy applications. We develop unique experimental infrastructure and support a large user community dedicated to material science for advanced nuclear reactors and extending the life of existing reactors. We use various beamlines at the National Synchrotron Light Source-II to study radioactive materials and radiation effects. We are designing a new facility with multiple high-energy x-ray beamlines capable of handling more highly radioactive materials.
