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.
The Chemical and Engineering Materials Division of the NScD at Oak Ridge National Laboratory is seeking motivated candidates for a postdoctoral research associate position in neutron imaging. With the advent of instruments such as the HFIR CG-1D cold imaging beamline, it has now become possible to obtain high-spatial resolution 2 and 3-dimensional neutron imaging data of a series of advanced materials. Information about the CG-1D facility can be found at: http://neutrons.ornl.gov/imaging/
The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary research team with expertise in neutron scattering, nanoparticle synthesis, thin film growth, materials chemistry, inorganic materials, fuel cell, and battery materials. This person will also have the opportunity to work with users of the CG-1D imaging beamline, where the research interests are aligned.
