The Neutron Scattering Science Division (NSSD) at Oak Ridge National
Laboratory invites applications for a Neutron Scattering Instrument
Scientist.  The NSSD includes both the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS)
and the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR).  The Neutron Scattering
Instrument Scientist will perform experiments at both the SNS and HFIR.
The neutron scattering facility at the HFIR has recently undergone a
major expansion with the addition of the cold neutron source.  The
facility will have eleven instruments operating by the end of 2008 with
four more beginning development.  Eight are thermal neutron scattering
instruments in the reactor building and seven are cold neutron
instruments in an adjacent guide hall.  Research at the facilities will
encompass the physical, chemical, materials, biological, and medical


Successful candidate will develop a world-class scientific research
program using neutron scattering techniques; ensure that the powder
diffractometer at the HFIR is capable of supporting leading edge science
experiments; and support the neutron scattering users program on the
HFIR powder diffractometer.


Major duties and responsibilities:

*         Oversees the installation and commissioning of the HFIR powder

*         Conducts leading edge scientific research using neutron
scattering. The areas of research may include, but are not limited to,
magnetism, condensed matter physics, chemistry, earth science, and
materials science.

*         Leads the operation of the HFIR powder diffractometer.

*         Evaluates the performance and effectiveness of the HFIR powder
diffractometer in supporting world class science and coordinates its
maintenance and upgrades. 

*         Acts as local contact for powder diffraction in the HFIR/SNS
neutron scattering user program, supports the neutron scattering program
and develops links with the neutron scattering user community.

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

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

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


Successful candidate will have: a Ph.D. in any of the Physical Sciences
plus postdoctoral experience; strong background in condensed matter
physics or materials science as evidenced by an outstanding record of
publications in top peer-reviewed journals; strong interpersonal,
written, and oral communication skills; and a desire to work in a team
environment on technically challenging problems.  Experience in neutron
diffraction is highly desirable.


No Clearance is required for this position. 

Relocation assistance is available for this position. 

Candidates who identify themselves as 3161-eligible will be required to 
supply appropriate documentation upon request. 

ORNL offers competitive salaries and comprehensive benefits.


Qualified and interested candidates must submit a current resume with a
list of three references to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Employment
Opportunities web site (www.ornl.gov and select jobs) to ensure
consideration. For more information visit our web site at www.sns.gov. 


ORNL, a multiprogram research facility managed by UT-Battelle, LLC, for
the U.S. Department of Energy is an equal opportunity employer committed
to building and maintaining a diverse work force.
