The University of Tennessee is seeking candidates for a Research
Associate position based at the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR)
in Gaithersburg, MD to work on modeling and simulation software for the
Small Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS) community.
The NCNR is a national user facility that develops and makes available
to the general scientific community advanced instrumentation for
materials research using beams of cold neutrons. The laboratory serves
almost 2000 guest scientists per year with about 29 experiment stations.
More information about the NCNR can be found at the web site
The Department of Chemistry at UT is involved in a five-year software
development project that will deliver applications for data reduction,
data analysis, modeling and simulation. The successful candidate will
work closely with the SANS community at NIST and will have a leading
role in identifying the techniques necessary to extend the present
analysis capabilities that will in turn enable new science. Interactions
with the SNS at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, TN are
also expected. Responsibilities will include:
* Working with the SANS community to identify analysis needs.
* Identify and review the techniques necessary to address those needs.
* Adhering to the group's software engineering process and using
those techniques, implement the required modeling and simulation
* PhD in physics, material science, or a related field.
* Strong programming skills in Python or C.
* Experience in small angle scattering is desirable.
* Motivation to work in cross-disciplinary research and development
* Excellent written and verbal communications skills.
Applications will be accepted until a suitable candidate has been
identified. In furtherance of the Universitys fundamental commitment to
diversity, minority group members and women are strongly encouraged to
apply. Applicants should send a resume by e-mail to Dr. Paul Butler, at
paul.butler at nist.gov, and Dr. Mathieu Doucet, at mathieu.doucet at nist.gov.
