Summary: The Manuel Lujan Jr. Neutron Scattering Center (Lujan
Center) is seeking a
highly motivated individual to be the main LANSCE contact for a
newly funded upgrade to the
Neutron Powder Diffractometer (NPD). This project is funded by
the National Science
Foundation, the University of Pennsylvania, State University of
New York at Stony Brook,
University of Virginia, Michigan State University, UC Santa
Barbara and Los Alamos National
Laboratory. The upgrade includes expanded detector coverage at
the backscattering angle
with the objective of increased data acquisition rate at high-Q
for determination of pair
distribution functions (PDF) with high real-space resolution.
The successful candidate will
assist in the planning, design, and installation of the upgrade;
oversee development of
technical, cost, and schedule baseline for the upgrade; be
responsible for the day-to-day
technical decisions to achieve this goal; be responsible for the
management; and ensure that all applicable LANSCE and Laboratory
followed. The successful candidate will conduct a program of
neutron scattering research
with an emphasis on the application of the PDF technique to the
study of aperiodic
structures in metals, ceramics, liquids, and glasses using the
Lujan Center and other
neutron scattering facilities. The successful candidate will
serve as the scientific liaison for
PDF analysis between LANSCE-12 and other Los Alamos
effectively on scientific problems of mutual interest; interact
effectively with the broader
community of experimentalists within and outside the Laboratory.
