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
· 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
