Postdoctoral Research Associate in Neutron Scattering
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) ( operates two of the brightest neutron sources in the world, the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) and the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), for basic and applied research in a broad array of disciplines including physics, chemistry, materials science and biology. SNS and HFIR are home to a group of scientists and a suite of instruments dedicated to the study of large-scale structures.

NSSD has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research associate to conduct independent research using neutron scattering as a primary tool.

  Major Duties and Responsibilities:

Strong background in hard condensed matter physics as evidenced by outstanding record of publications in top peer-reviewed journals. Experience in inelastic neutron scattering as well as superconducting and sample growth of materials is highly desirable. The candidate should have strong interpersonal, communication, and oral skills and demonstrated ability to interact effectively with staff at all levels within a multi-disciplinary team.

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.
