Neutron Scattering Science Division
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Oak Ridge, Tennessee


Project Description:
The Neutron Scattering Sciences  Division (NSSD) of Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is seeking a  postdoctoral research associate for in-situ neutron scattering studies of fuel  cell materials. Responsibilities  include working with sample environment team at SNS to build instrumentation  for in-situ neutron diffraction studies of fuel cell materials, and use this  system to study these materials using neutron powder diffraction and other  scattering techniques.

Major  Duties/Responsibilities:

ORNL  is seeking a post-doctoral researcher with demonstrated expertise in the area  of instrumentation development and diffraction studies of powder materials.  Candidates with a recent Ph.D. in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, or  related fields will be considered. Experience and knowledge about x-ray/neutron  scattering is desirable. Strong written and oral communication skills and the  desire to work in a team environment on scientifically challenging problems are  required. Reports to the instrument scientist of powgen, powder diffractometer  at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS). Works with other members in the Neutron  Scattering Science Division and collaborates with scientists in divisions of  Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
