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 30 instruments for neutron scattering
research, each year carrying out in excess of 1,000 experiments in the physical, chemical, materials, biological and medical
sciences. 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.

Maintain and develop the intellectual understanding of the SNS accelerator beam, needed to maintain stable operations and
participate in power upgrades. Utilize the SNS accelerator to further develop the understanding of high intensity beam
physics, e.g. conceive and pursue beam based experiments. Develop models and software needed to simulate and
understand beam effects. Participates in studies for power upgrades and additional beam applications. Participates in
physics development beam shifts to perform beam physics studies. Interfaces with other team members as well as the, and
diagnostic physics teams, as well as the Controls and Operations Groups.

Major Duties/Responsibilities
Develops a line of inquiry to understand or improve an aspect of the SNS accelerator beam.
* Develops beam study plans, and participates in shifts to pursue the general lines of inquiry.
* Develops beam simulation models or tools to help understand high intensity beam physics.
* Help diagnose and remedy machine issues that are not understood, that may involve beam effects.
* Participates in scientific conferences, workshops, meetings and publishes results in the form of SNS technical notes and
memos, workshop and conference proceedings, and scientific journals.

* Participates with other team members in developing goals, resource plans, and policies for the Team and the Group.
* Assists team leader in coordinating the work of graduate students in the team.
* Ensures compliance with environment, safety, health, and quality program requirements including ISMS.
* Maintains a strong commitment to the implementation and perpetuation of values and ethics.

Qualifications Required
PhD degree in related sciences and at least one year of experience after the PhD in accelerator physics is required.
Qualifications Desired:
A background in accelerator physics and experience working with an accelerator is desirable. Experience working in a control
room, conducting accelerator-based experiments, and performing accelerator simulations is also desirable.

Work Directions and Interfaces
Reports to the SNS Accelerator Physics Team leader, works with physicists, engineers, Postdocs and students.
