NIST Center for Neutron Research


The NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) is seeking candidates for a
position as an Instrument Scientist for our neutron spin echo 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 spin echo instrument, which is
capable of accessing Fourier times in excess of 100 ns, enables scientists
to perform studies of the low frequency dynamics and relaxational processes
in materials such as complex fluids and gels, polymers, biomaterials, and
magnetic systems.  


The position requires a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering, Materials Science,
Condensed Matter Physics, or Chemistry along with good communication skills.
Experience in scattering methods, particularly SANS, or in other probes of
dynamical processes in materials 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 spin echo 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 $52,000 to $60,000 depending on qualifications and


Expressions of interest along with a resume should be sent to:
