The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is seeking outstanding research leaders for four Senior Scientist positions in the Neutron Sciences Directorate.   With the United States’ highest flux reactor-based neutron source for condensed matter research (the High Flux Isotope Reactor) and the world's most intense pulsed, accelerator-based neutron source (the Spallation Neutron Source), ORNL is becoming the world's foremost center for neutron science. Research at these facilities encompasses the physical, chemical, materials, biological, and medical sciences and will provide opportunities for up to 2000 researchers each year from industry, research facilities, and universities all over the world.  To learn more about Neutron Sciences at ORNL go to:



We seek candidates with outstanding records of accomplishment and demonstrated ability to build world-leading and innovative programs of neutron scattering research. While outstanding candidates from all relevant science disciplines are invited to apply, areas specifically targeted for growth and development are; energy materials (including photovoltaics, catalysis and solid-state materials), environmental geosciences (including carbon sequestration and chemistry in extreme environments), nano-structured materials (including soft-matter, polymers and self-assembly), and biological systems (bio-energy, bio-membranes and structural biology). Candidates are expected to build programs that will deliver outstanding science in these areas and drive the development of innovative scientific methods, tools and technologies for neutron research. Senior scientists are expected to develop key partnerships that cut across the Neutron Sciences Directorate and other ORNL directorates, government agencies, universities and industry. Successful candidates will be internationally recognized authorities in neutron scattering sciences with a distinguished record of research and a demonstrated ability to conceive and lead advanced research and development.



The successful candidates will have an excellent track record, typically achieved after post doc attainment, with a minimum of 15 years of experience. Demonstrated achievements in promoting collaborative relationships and building multi-disciplinary research teams is required. Strong communication skills including an extensive list of publications and presentations required.
