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
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
completion in 2006.
The Neutron Scattering Postdoctoral Research Fellow conducts
research using neutron scattering as a primary research tool, and
design and construction of the VULCAN diffractometer at the Spallation
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.
