Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA
The Diffraction Group in the Neutron Scattering Division (NSD) of the NScD at Oak Ridge National Laboratory has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral position focused on the modeling of local atomic structure in nanophase and nanostructured materials. Particular attention will be focused on linking surface chemistry, particle morphology, and “internal” crystal structure to the properties of functional nanocrystals, including during their use in industrial processes. Successful candidates will work within a collaborative team to develop and apply new data reduction and structure refinement methodologies, including towards in situ data monitoring and analysis. This position will allow postdoctoral scientists to develop expertise, broaden experience and to interact with a diverse set of leading scientists working and visiting ORNL’s neutron facilities.
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
