Subject: SANS Instrument Scientist Position at NIST


The NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) is seeking candidates for a position as a Small-Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS) Instrument Scientist.  The SANS instrumentation at the NCNR comprises two 30-m, and one 8-m, long pinhole geometry instruments, and a recently commissioned perfect-crystal diffractometer for ultra-high resolution measurements (USANS).  Combined these instruments span four orders of magnitude in Q-space corresponding to structural features in materials ranging from 1nm to over 1000 nm.  Associated with these instruments are six scientific staff with broad interests in relating nano- to microscale structure in materials and macromolecules to bulk properties, processing and function; in conducting research that advances measurement capabilities and analysis methods; and, in promoting the use of these facilities by the general scientific community.

The position requires a Ph.D. in experimental Condensed Matter Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, Chemical Engineering or Structural Biology, along with good communication skills.  Experience in microstructure or macromolecular structure characterization using x-ray or neutron diffraction techniques is highly desirable.  Responsibilities include assisting visiting researchers in conducting experiments and reducing data, instrument testing and calibration, and participating in equipment and software development projects.  These duties are intended to occupy no more than two-thirds of the instrument scientist's time to enable him or her to conduct independent or collaborative research using the SANS instruments and other facilities at the NCNR.  Appointment will initially be for two years with the possibility of extension for up to two additional years.  Salary is in the range from $45,000 to $55,000 depending on qualifications and experience.  Expressions of interest along with a resume should be sent to:
