Posting Title: Postdoctoral Research Associates in Condensed Matter (to apply follow the link at the end of this message)

Reference Code:  ORNL12-21-QCMD

The Neutron Sciences Directorate (NScD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) (http://www.ornl.gov/) operates the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), the United States' highest flux reactor based neutron source, and the Spallation Neutron Source(SNS), the world's most intense pulsed accelerator based neutron source. Together these facilities operate 24 instruments for neutron scattering research, each year carrying out 1000 experiments in the physical, chemical, materials, biological and medical sciences for 2000 visiting scientists. To learn more about Neutron Sciences at ORNL go to: http://neutrons.ornl.gov/.
The Quantum Condensed Matter Division (QCMD) of ORNL operates 13 instruments for elastic and inelastic neutron scattering studies of materials. Instruments are located at both the HFIR and the SNS. The QCMD conducts research on materials with emergent properties that are manifestly quantum in origin. Some examples of current interest include superconductivity, multiferroicity, low dimensional and frustrated magnetism, orbital fluctuations and quantum criticality.
QCMD has immediate openings for one or more postdoctoral fellow positions to work on scientific projects using neutron scattering in the Time-of-Flight Spectroscopy, Triple-Axis Spectroscopy or Structure of Matter groups. These positions will be two year, contractual appointments through the Oak Ridge Institute of Science and Education (ORISE) that are renewable for one additional year upon performance review. The successful candidate(s) will join the research teams at any of the three QCMD research groups mentioned above. These positions represent an excellent opportunity to carry out research in condensed matter using neutron scattering in a stimulating multidisciplinary environment.
Ph.D. in the Physical Sciences is required. The candidate should be self-motivated, have good interpersonal, communication, and presentational skills, and a demonstrated ability to interact effectively with research staff at all levels and to work within a multi-disciplinary team. A strong background in experimental hard condensed matter physics and a proven track record in neutron scattering research would be a distinct advantage. For further questions, please contact Dr. Stephen Nagler at naglerse at ornl.gov<mailto:naglerse at ornl.gov>.

Applications from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged. Applications received by March 31 are guaranteed full review. We anticipate the appointments appointment will be made by May 1, 2012 but applications will be accepted until all the positions
