The Neutron Sciences Directorate (NScD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) 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 27 instruments for neutron scattering research, each year carrying out in excess of 1,000 experiments in the physical, chemical, materials, biological and medical sciences for more than 3,000 visiting scientists. HFIR also provides unique facilities for isotope production and neutron irradiation. To learn more about Neutron Sciences at ORNL go to: http://neutrons.ornl.gov.<http://neutrons.ornl.gov/>

The Accelerator Physics, Beam Instrumentation and Ion Source Group in the Research Accelerator Division (RAD) has an immediate opening for a post-doctoral research associate. Applications are sought from creative and motivated individuals who will participate in the development and research program in beam instrumentation for the SNS accelerator systems. This research is expected to be done in a team environment on technically and scientifically challenging problems. A significant amount of effort will be devoted to improving the performance and availability of the existing beam instrumentation systems.

Major Duties/Responsibilities

The successful candidate will work with the Accelerator Physics, Beam Instrumentation and Ion Source group as well as with other RAD groups, to:
- Continue development of a wide band feedback system for mitigating e-p instability in the SNS storage ring.
- Support obsolescence mitigation program for the SNS beam instrumentation by leading design efforts for new analog electronics for various beam instrumentation systems.
- Publish scientific papers on this research
- Present scientific results at appropriate national and international conferences.

Qualifications Required

A Ph.D. in experimental physics or electrical engineering, or other related science fields is required. Applicants must have received their PhD within five years of this application and must complete all degree requirements before starting their appointment.

*Employment is contingent upon the results of a pre-employment physical exam and drug screen which must be administered and cleared before employment can begin.

Qualifications Desired:
Preference will be given to candidates with experience in accelerators of charged beams, beam instrumentation, design of
printed circuit boards, design of low power electronics and programming in LabView. Strong written and oral communications
skills are preferred.

This position will remain open for a minimum of 5 days after which it will close when a qualified candidate is identified and/or hired.

We accept Word(.doc, .docx), Excel(.xls, .xlsx), PowerPoint(.ppt, .pptx), Adobe(.pdf), Rich Text Format(.rtf), HTML(.htm,
