ORNL is seeking a post-doctoral researcher with demonstrated expertise in the area of scattering studies of condensed matter magnetism. Candidates with a recent Ph.D. in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, or related fields will be considered. Experiences and knowledge with inelastic time-of-flight instrument operation, data treatment, etc. on pulsed neutron sources are desirable, though not essential. Strong written and oral communication skills and the desire to work in a team environment on scientifically challenging problems are required. The successful candidate is expected to conduct independent research at the Spallation Neutron Source, the High Flux Isotope Reactor at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and other neutron scattering facilities around the world.


Major Duties/Responsibilities:


Responsibilities include conducting independent research using neutron scattering as a primary research tool, mainly on CNCS (beam line 5), but also on other beam lines at SNS and at other neutron facilities


·    Conceives and conducts independent and collaborative neutron scattering experiments at SNS.

·   Travels to other neutron sources to perform neutron scattering experiments and analyze the experimental data.

·   Publishes research results in scientific journals.

·   Assists with the operation of the CNCS beam line at SNS.

·   Maintains a strong commitment to the implementation and perpetuation of values and ethics.

·   Ensures compliance with environment, safety, health and quality program requirements.

·   Successfully conduct independent research and publish research results in scientific journals.

·   Establish a strong scientific program in his/her area of expertise.


Reports to the lead instrument scientist of CNCS.  Works with other members in the Neutron Scattering Science Division and collaborates with scientists in Oak Ridge National Laboratory and other neutron scattering institutions
