Postdoctoral Position at the Manuel Lujan Jr. Neutron Scattering Center.

Postdoctoral Position in Spallation Physics and Spallation
                             Target Design - PD97126 

The Manuel Lujan Jr. Neutron Scattering Center at Los Alamos National
Laboratory is seeking a postdoctoral candidate in the area of
spallation physics and spallation target system design. The successful
candidate will be a member of the Lujan Center Spallation
Physics Team with responsibilities in the areas of Short-Pulse Spallation
Source (SPSS) and Long-Pulse Spallation Source (LPSS)
target station design, Accelerator Production of Tritium (APT)
target/blanket design, and shielding design. The position involves the
use of complex Monte Carlo transport codes (e.g., MCNP and LAHET). The
position requires documented experience in the area of
neutron transport theory and in the use of the Los Alamos MCNP Monte Carlo
code. Documented experience in the use of the Los
Alamos LAHET Code System and deterministic codes is highly desirable. For
further technical information contact Gary Russell

A Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering or equivalent completed within the last
three years or soon to be completed is required. Annual
starting salaries range from $45,700 to $49,300, plus a generous,
comprehensive benefits package. Candidates may compete for a
Director's Fellowship and outstanding candidates may be considered for the
prestigious J. Robert Oppenheimer Fellowship (Starting
salary -$70,000). For consideration, submit TWO COPIES of a resume and
publications list along with a cover letter outlining current
research interests and the names of three individuals who will provide
references to:
