JOB # 202696

Summary: Postdoc Position in Neutron Scattering:  The Manuel Lujan Jr. 
Neutron Scattering Center (LANSCE-12) and the Nuclear Materials Science 
Group (NMT-16) are seeking as 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 alloys
·       Develop computer program for the models and for analysis of the 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 
in 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.

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.htm.
