The NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) is seeking interested candidates
with project management and leadership experience to coordinate instrument
development projects.  The NCNR operates a world-class neutron scattering
research facility comprised of state-of-the-art neutron spectrometers
designed to probe matter at the atomic scale.  The Instrument Development
Coordinator will be the nexus for all neutron scattering instrument
development coordination and planning activities.  The incumbent will be
responsible for planning, evaluating, tracking, analyzing and coordinating
multiple complex instrumentation projects-the focus of the NCNR Expansion
Initiative (http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/expansion/).


The functions of this position include: management of the overall project
schedule for design, development, construction, and commissioning of new
neutron scattering instrumentation; performing facilitated planning sessions
to build consensus among project team members (e.g. mechanical engineering,
data acquisition and instrument control systems engineers, software
engineers, and the principal investigators) regarding task definitions, task
sequencing and task interrelationships within the project; create, review,
update, and disseminate project schedules, supporting documents and
corresponding project management plans; develop and monitor project schedule
baselines and budgets; develop, track and analyze project schedule and cost
performance criteria; prepare project reports and presentations for program
and project status meetings; and develop program-level schedules to
coordinate and manage integrated efforts between individual instrument
development projects.  While team leadership is a primary function of this
position, no direct supervisory duties are required.


Individuals interested in consideration should hold a Bachelor of Science
Degree (or higher) from an accredited institution in the field of
Engineering or Physical Science, five years of experience in managing
projects, strong organizational and communication skills, a strong ability
to interpret and compose technical documentation, and have the ability to
absorb and manage large quantities of information in a fast-paced
environment.  The candidate must have the ability to develop and execute
complex technical tasks and apply analytical problem solving methodologies.
Experience with neutron scattering and/or neutron scattering instrumentation
is a plus.  Only United States citizens will be considered.


For consideration, candidates should send a resume and cover letter to:


Robert M. Dimeo

National Institute of Standards and Technology

100 Bureau Drive, MS 6103

Gaithersburg, MD 20899


Or electronically (preferred)
