  The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) Project at the Oak Ridge National 
  Laboratory invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in
  Instrument Systems Group. The U.S. Department of Energy Office of
Science has 
  funded the design and construction of the SNS, which will provide the
  powerful next-generation short-pulse spallation neutron source in the
  for neutron scattering and related research in broad areas of the
  chemical, materials, biological, and medical sciences. The SNS is a 
  partnership among six DOE national laboratories (Argonne, Brookhaven, 
  Jefferson, Lawrence Berkeley, Los Alamos, and Oak Ridge), and is
scheduled for 
  completion in 2006. 
  The Neutron Scattering Postdoctoral Research Fellow conducts
  research using neutron scattering as a primary research tool, and
assists the 
  design and construction of the VULCAN diffractometer at the Spallation
  Source (SNS). 
  The incumbent will be a temporary SNS employee. The term is for 2
  renewable for the third year pending on funding and mutual agreement.
  incumbent will conduct independent research on deformation and phase 
  transformation behaviors in advanced materials, using neutron
scattering as a 
  primary tool. Typical work will involve design and execution of
  experiments. Frequent travel to neutron scattering facilities is
  In addition to materials research, the incumbent will also have an
  to contribute to VULCAN, a state-of-the art engineering diffractometer
  construction at the Spallation Neutron Source. 
  A Ph.D. in materials science, materials engineering, physics, or a
  field is required. Solid knowledge in physical metallurgy is
  Candidates with expertise in deformation behaviors and/or phase
  of nano materials are particularly welcome, and those with strong 
  characterization or processing skills are encouraged to apply.
  experience in neutron or X-ray scattering techniques is a plus. Strong

  written and oral communication skills and the desire to work in a team

  environment on scientifically challenging problems are required.
