NIST Center for Neutron Research Postdoctoral Fellowship
Structure/dynamics functional relationships in energy related

We are seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position focused on studying energy related
systems and materials such as battery and hydrogen‐storage materials at the
National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Center for Neutron Research
(NCNR), Gaithersburg, MD. The NCNR is a world leader in neutron sciences with 24
operating instruments serving more than 2200 research participants/year resulting
in 330 scientific publications/year (annual reports available at
http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/AnnualReport/). Besides the wide array of elastic and
inelastic neutron scattering instruments, the Center operates a variety of
complementary facilities, from X‐ray diffractometers, analytic chemistry
instruments and gas adsorption apparatus, and has access to a wide range of other
state of the art equipment through partnerships with other NIST labs. and the
University of Maryland.

The successful candidate will contribute to research aimed at understanding the
physics and chemistry underpinning hydrogen interactions in modern adsorbent-based
systems with a view to their implementation in prototype systems. These are
competitive and rapidly advancing fields that offer the potential to contribute to
both basic science and applied programs and present an excellent opportunity for a
young scientist to broaden their experience and develop their expertise. The
primary tools to this end involve the use of quasi‐elastic, inelastic, neutron
diffraction and neutron imaging techniques. Candidates must have a PhD in a
physical science a strong work ethic, good communications skills and a proven
publication record. Experience in neutron or X‐ray scattering and/or spectroscopy
based techniques is desirable.

The position is open immediately and the appointment term will be for up to two
years with the potential for extension. Salary is in the range from $58,000 to
$65,000 depending on qualifications and experience.

The deadline for the application is April 20th 2010 or until the position is filled.
Please send inquiries, a statement of suitability and your resume (electronic
preferred) to:
