PurposeThe 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'smost intense pulsed accelerator based neutron source. Together these facilities operate 30 instruments for neutron scatteringresearch, each year carrying out in excess of 1,000 experiments in the physical, chemical, materials, biological and medicalsciences for more than 3,000 visiting scientists. HFIR also provides unique facilities for isotope production and neutronirradiation. To learn more about Neutron Sciences at ORNL go to: http://neutrons.ornl.govPurpose:We seek an outstanding candidate for a postdoc position to work on the development of a polarized Small Angle NeutronScattering (SANS) capability. The candidate is expected to carry out research and development of 3He neutron spin filters aswell as deployment of these filters on the GPSANS instrument at HFIR (http://neutrons.ornl.gov/gpsans) and elsewhere asappropriate. The successful candidate will report to the Lead Polarization Scientist in the Instrument and Source Division andthe Group Leader of the Thin Films and Nanostructures Group in the Quantum Condensed Matter Division.
Major Duties/ResponsibilitiesThe successful candidate will join the polarized SANS project team and collaborate with other group members at the OakRidge National Laboratory on the following:* Develop in-situ polarized 3He systems for the GPSANS instrument* Deploy polarized 3He (both in-situ and ex-situ) for polarized SANS experiments* Work and collaborate with internal and external users on neutron scattering experiments* Develop related software for polarized SANS data analysis* Work with and develop polarized 3He spin filter capabilities for other neutron instruments
Qualifications RequiredA Ph.D. in materials science, chemistry, physics, or other related science or engineering fields is required. Applicants musthave hands-on experience with instrumentation in at least one of the following fields: polarized 3He, polarized neutronscattering, or nuclear magnetic resonance. Applicants are expected to have strong written and oral communications skills.Applicants must have received their Ph.D. within five years of this application and must complete all degree requirementsbefore starting their appointment.Employment is contingent upon the results of a pre-employment drug screen which must be administered and cleared beforeemployment can begin.Qualifications Desired:Preference will be given to candidates with experience in polarized 3He applied to polarized neutron scatteringinstrumentation. Experience in polarized 3He development is preferred but not required. Prior R&D experience at large userfacilities is desirable.This position will remain open for a minimum of 5 days after which it will close when a qualified candidate is identified and/orhired.

We accept Word(.doc, .docx), Excel(.xls, .xlsx), PowerPoint(.ppt, .pptx), Adobe(.pdf), Rich Text Format(.rtf), HTML(.htm,.hmtl) and text files(.txt) up to 2MB in size. Resumes from third party vendors will not be accepted; these resumes will bedeleted and the candidates submitted will not be considered for employment.If you have trouble applying for a position, please email ORNLRecruiting@ornl.gov<mailto:ORNLRecruiting@ornl.gov>.Notice: If the position requires a Security Clearance, reviews and tests for the absence of any illegal drug as defined in 10CFR 707.4 will be conducted by the employer and a background investigation by the Federal government may be requiredto obtain an access authorization prior to employment and subsequent reinvestigations may be required.If the position is covered by the Counterintelligence Evaluation Program regulations at 10 CFR 709, a counterintelligenceevaluation may include a counterintelligence-scope polygraph examination.ORNL is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants, including individuals with disabilities and protectedveterans, are encouraged to apply. UT-Battelle is an E-Verify Employer.
