Liquids Reflectometer Instrument Scientist


The Neutron Science Directorate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory invites
applications for a Liquids Reflectometer Instrument Scientist. The
Spallation Neutron Source (SNS), when combined with the High Flux
Isotope Reactor makes Oak Ridge the world's foremost center for Neutron
Science. SNS is the most powerful short-pulse spallation neutron source
in the world. These unique facilities 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 June 2006.


Successful candidate will: develop the new world-leading capabilities
within the ORNL Neutron Scattering Science Division (NSSD) for thin film
research using neutron reflectometry.  Ensures that the Liquids
Reflectometer at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) is capable of
supporting leading edge scientific experiments.  Supports the neutron
scattering users program on the Liquids Reflectometer.



*         Participates in the continual improvement of the SNS Liquids

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

*         Works with a team of scientists, including scientific
associates and post docs, to operate the SNS Liquids Reflectometer.  

*         Evaluates the performance and effectiveness of the SNS Liquids
Reflectometer in supporting world class science and participates in its
maintenance and upgrades. 

*         Acts as local contact for thin film research in the Neutron
Scattering Science Division (NSSD) 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 including the ORNL Integrated Safety
Management System.

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


Required qualifications:

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.
Desire to work in a team environment on technically challenging
problems.  Experience in neutron reflectometry and neutron optics is
highly desirable.

Qualified and interested candidates are strongly encouraged to submit a
current resume with a list of three references to the Oak Ridge National
Laboratory Employment Opportunities web site at http://jobs.ornl.gov.
Position ID Number: 2394. (We can only accept Microsoft Word documents.)
