  • Priority: normal
The Macromolecular and Microstructure Sciences team at the NIST Center for Neutron 
Research (NCNR) in Gaithersburg, MD, is seeking candidates for a small angle scattering 
Instrument Scientist position.  The team is responsible for operating two 30-m SANS 
instruments and one USANS instrument which combined span four orders of magnitude in Q-
space corresponding to structural features in materials ranging from 1 nm to 20,000 nm.  
The position will allow the successful candidate an exciting opportunity to develop a 
strong scientific program taking advantage of this world class instrumentation within the 
context of a major national laboratory.

The position requires a Ph.D. in a materials science related field and excellent 
experimental, communication, and interpersonal skills.  Experience in microstructure or 
macromolecular structure characterization using x-ray or neutron techniques is highly 
desirable.  Strong programming skills are also a plus.  Responsibilities include helping 
visiting researchers in conducting experiments, participating in instrument maintenance 
and development activities, and developing an independent research program.  Appointment 
will initially be for two years with the possibility of extension for up to two 
additional years.  Salary is in the range from $56,000 to $66,000 depending on 
qualifications and experience.  Expressions of interest along with a resume should be 
sent (preferably electronically) to:
