[SA_scat] ORNL10-139-NSSD - Neutron Scattering Instrument Scientist


Neutron Scattering Instrument Scientist

Neutron Scattering Science Division

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Oak Ridge, Tennessee




Project Description:


The Neutron Sciences Directorate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL)
invites applications

for Neutron Scattering Instrument Scientists. With the world's highest
flux reactor-based neutron

source (the High Flux Isotope Reactor) and the world's most intense
pulsed accelerator-based

neutron source (the Spallation Neutron Source), ORNL has become the
world's foremost center for

neutron science. Research at these facilities will encompass the
physical, chemical, materials,

biological, and medical sciences and will provide opportunities for up
to 2000 researchers each year

from industry, research facilities, and universities all over the world.
To learn more about Neutron

Sciences at ORNL go to: http://neutrons.ornl.gov.


The successful candidate will be a team member to provide operational
support for specific

instruments at the Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope
Reactor, and to develop a

vigorous scientific program associated with the instrument.


Major duties and responsibilities:


* Will work with Instrument Scientists and Instrument Associates to
provide user support.

This will include helping users to develop user proposals, conduct
experiments, and analyze


* Will maintain the instrument and coordinate with support groups to
make sure that the

instrument is ready for each user experiment.

* Will work with other staff and research groups at ORNL to conduct
world leading research

using instruments at ORNL.

* Will work with the team to conceive, plan, and execute upgrades of the
instrument. This will

include both hardware and software.




Ph.D. plus postdoctoral experience in material science, physics,
mechanical engineering, or related

fields, involving neutron and/or x-ray diffraction, or equivalent
combination of training and

experience, is required. Strong written and oral communication skills
and the desire to work in a

team environment on technically and scientifically challenging problems
are required. Experienced

with instrument, software and programming development, particularly at a
neutron or x-ray facility is
