Please post the position below.  Thank you


The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory
invites applications for a Neutron Scattering Instrument Scientist. SNS
will be the most powerful short-pulse spallation neutron source in the
world. This unique facility will provide opportunities for up to 2000
researchers each year from universities, national labs, and industry for
basic and applied research and technology development in the fields of
materials science, magnetic materials, polymers and complex fluids,
chemistry, and biology. Funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office
of Science, SNS began operations in 2006.


The successful candidate will develop new world-leading capabilities for
structural biology research using single-crystal neutron diffraction.
The structural biology community has proposed the development of a
state-of-the-art dedicated high resolution macromolecular neutron
diffractometer for the SNS.



Responsibilities include:


*         Leads, together with the Principal Investigators, the design
of a single crystal macromolecular neutron diffraction instrument at the

*         Works with other SNS staff and with the Principal
Investigators and other members of the Instrument Development Team to
ensure that the design of the instrument meets the scientific

*         Leads the construction, installation, commissioning, and
operation of the macromolecular diffraction instrument.

*         Interacts with engineering design/drafting personnel, other
scientists, shop personnel, and external suppliers and contractors.

*         Develops links with the User Community and conduct research in
large molecule crystallography and structural biology using neutron

*         Ensures compliance with environmental, safety, health, and
quality program requirements.



Required qualifications are: Ph.D. plus postdoctoral experience in
macromolecular crystallography or a structural biology discipline,
involving neutron and/or x-ray diffraction, or equivalent combination of
training and experience, is required.  Strong written and oral
communication skills and the desire to work in a team environment on
technically challenging problems are required.  Experience with
instrument and software development, particularly at a neutron or x-ray
synchrotron facility, is desired.
