Postdoctoral Position at Los Alamos National Laboratory
Contact: Joyce A. Roberts, joycer at lanl.gov

Summary: Postdoctoral Position in Neutron Scattering:  The Manuel Lujan Jr. 
Neutron Scattering Center (LANSCE-12) and the Nuclear Materials Science 
Group (NMT-16) are seeking a postdoctoral candidate for a joint position in 
modeling and analysis of neutron scattering experiments on highly absorbing 
materials.  The goal of this research project involves:
·       Developing sound models for prediction and interpretation of 
neutron scattering data, mainly via diffraction or small-angle, taken with 
samples that contain highly absorbing materials such as iridium and some 
plutonium isotopes
·       Develop computer programs for the models and for analysis of data
·       Propose, plan and execute experiments that will validate the model 
and analysis programs

Required Skills: Familiarity with scattering techniques such as neutron and 
x-rays and modeling of the scattering functions.  Knowledge of programming 
under a Windows operating system.  Excellent oral and written communication 
skills.  Must be able to obtain a Department of Energy “Q-Clearance” which 
normally requires US citizenship

Desired Skills: Demonstrated knowledge of neutron scattering techniques. 
Experience with Monte Carlo methods

Education:  A Ph. D. in Materials Science, Physics, or another physical 
science completed within the last five years or soon to be completed is 

Notes to Applicants: For additional information about the project, please 
contact Joyce Roberts at joycer at lanl.gov.  Visit the Lujan Neutron 
Scattering Center web site at http://lansce.lanl.gov/lujan/index_lujan.htm.

Candidates may be considered for a Director’s Fellowship and outstasnding 
candidates may be considered for the prestigious J. Robert Oppenheimer, 
Richard P. Feynman, or Frederick Reines Fellowships.  Please see Special
