The Neutron Scattering Science Division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory
(http://www.ornl.gov) has an immediate opening for a post-doctoral
research associate. The successful candidate will develop software for
commissioning of the VULCAN engineering diffractometer at the Spallation
Neutron Source (SNS), a world-class scientific research program, using
neutron scattering techniques and ensure that the powder diffractometer
at the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) is capable of supporting leading
edge science experiments.  The position also supports the neutron
scattering users program on the HFIR powder diffractometer.  The
position will be funded for two years.  Salaries will be competitive.


Major duties and responsibilities include:

*         Identifies and evaluates available software for engineering
diffraction at pulsed neutron sources

*         Selects, adapts, and integrates existing software modules into
a package for commissioning of VULCAN

*         Develops a user-friendly interface for the software package 

*         Works with SNS data analysis group to develop customized
visualization tools

*         Creates documentation of the subject software package in
support of user operations

*         Participates in the commissioning of VULCAN and evaluates its
performance and effectiveness 

*         Conducts cutting-edge research using VULCAN or similar

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

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


Experience and Education Requirements:


Ph.D. in materials science and engineering, mechanical engineering,
condense matter physics, or chemistry.  Strong background in materials
science and engineering as evidenced by an outstanding record of
publications or practical experience in similar type of positions.
Strong computer and programming skills, experience with IDL and Matlab a
plus.  Desire to work in a team environment on technically challenging
problems.  Effective communication skills, both written and oral.
