The NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) is seeking candidates for a
position as an Instrument Scientist for our neutron backscattering
spectrometer.  This instrument is one of a set of spectrometers at the
NCNR that combined, give researchers access to dynamical phenomena
spanning seven orders of magnitude in time. In particular, the NCNR
backscattering instrument, which has a resolution of <1 micro-eV,
enables scientists to perform studies of the low frequency dynamics and
relaxational processes in materials such as polymers, ceramics, porous
media, fluids and gels, and biomaterials. 

The position requires a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry,
Condensed Matter Physics, or Materials Science along with good
communication skills.  Experience in scattering methods or in other
probes of dynamical processes in materials such as NMR, is highly
desirable.  Responsibilities include cooperating with visiting
researchers in conducting experiments and reducing data and
participating in equipment and software development projects.
Instrument Scientists are also encouraged to develop their own research
programs using the backscattering spectrometer or any of the other
facilities at the NCNR.  Appointment will initially be for two years
with the possibility of extension for up to two additional years.
Salary is in the range from $50,000 to $60,000 depending on
qualifications and experience.  Expressions of interest along with a cv
should be sent to:
