The Neutron Sciences Directorate (NScD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) invites applications for the position of Postdoctoral Research Associate in Neutron Scattering from Soft Opto-Electronic Materials. NScD 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 24 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.<http://neutrons.ornl.gov/>

Major Duties/Responsibilities

The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary research team of soft matter scientists at ORNL and actively participate in the on-going research activities of the group, which primarily utilizes experimental techniques such as SANS and SAXS to investigate the microstructure of opto-electronic polymers and their self-assembly with block copolymer systems. The candidate will be encouraged to develop his/her own independent and collaborative research in this area by combining experimental data modeling and simulations. The post represents an excellent opportunity for an individual to develop his/her career and interact with leading scientists from around the world. This is a one-year assignment, renewable to a second year. Applicants should have a strong interest in understanding the fundamental interaction mechanisms in soft materials e.g. polymers, colloids, surfactants, and membranes by various computer simulation techniques. The successful candidate is expected to a
 ctively perform various laboratory experiments to characterize the materials of interests as well as performing neutron and x-ray scattering experiments. Data analysis of these experiments will require strong mathematical and computational modeling skills. It is expected that close collaborative relationships with other members of BSMD and the staff of the SNS and HFIR will be established.

Qualifications Required

* Ph.D. in Physics, Applied Physics, Nuclear Engineering, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Materials
Science, Mechanical Engineering, or related science is required.
* Experience in soft matter science and expertise in laboratory experiments for material characterization, numerical data analysis, and modeling are required as evidenced by peer reviewed publications.
* Expertise in scattering theory is highly desirable, but not required.
* The candidate is expected to publish research results in scientific journals, maintain a strong commitment to the implementation and perpetuation of values and ethics and ensure compliance with environmental, safety, health and quality
program requirements.

* Strong written and oral communication skills and the desire to work in a team environment on scientifically challenging
problems are required.
Applicants cannot have received the most recent degree more than five years prior to the date of application and must complete all degree requirements before starting their appointment. Certain exceptions may be considered.
This position is a temporary, full-time assignment for 24 months.

This position will remain open for a minimum of 5 days after which it will close when a qualified candidate is identified and/or hired.

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 be deleted and the candidates submitted will not be considered for employment.
