Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA
An immediate opening is available with the Neutronics Team, within the Source Development and Engineering Analysis Group. We seek applications from creative and motivated individuals to participate in the development of concepts for high-performance moderator/neutron source systems tightly integrated with innovative neutron scattering instrumentation. This research is expected to be highly collaborative both with scientists within ORNL and external partners.
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 27 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.
