SANS Opportunity at Oak Ridge Natl Lab

Postdoctoral Opportunity in Small Angle Neutron Scattering Research
         at Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) (http://www.ornl.gov) invites 
applications for a postdoctoral opening in small-angle neutron scattering 
(SANS) research.  The ORNL SANS facilities are located at the High Flux 
Isotope Reactor (HFIR), which operates at 85 MW with a neutron flux > 1015 
neutrons/cm2/sec.  Upgrades currently in progress include the addition of a 
cold neutron source and the construction of two state-of-the-art SANS 
facilities.  There is an active inhouse scientific program and the topics 
addressed include polymer blends, neutral and charged polymer solutions, 
supercritical fluids as well as other aspects of polymer science and 
chemistry.

One position is open immediately and the successful candidate will 
participate in ongoing work on these topics, particularly studies of the 
self-assembly of charged polymers in solution.  Primary efforts will center 
on the application of SANS and other techniques (e.g., light scattering) to 
elucidate nanoscale structure in polyelectrolyte solutions.  The ideal 
candidate should have experience with either neutron or x-ray scattering 
measurements, a familiarity with polymers and computer programming 
expertise.  Applications will be evaluated on a continuing basis and 
competitive salaries and benefits are offered.  Please reference the 
position title and number (ORNL02-25-SANS), when corresponding about this 
position.  Interested candidates should contact:

Dr. George Wignall:  (865-5745237, "gdw@ornl.gov")
Dr. Yuri B. Melnichenko: (865-574-7746; "yui@ornl.gov")
Mike Simonson: (865-5744962; "simonsonjm@ornl.gov").

This appointment will be offered through the ORNL Postdoctoral Research 
Associates Program 
(http://www.orau.gov/orise/edu/ornl/ornl-pd/ornlpdoc.htm).  The program is 
open to all qualified U.S. and non-U.S. citizens without regard to race, 
color, age, religion, sex, national origin, physical or mental disability, 
or status as a Vietnam-era veteran or disabled veteran.
