CNCS Instrument Scientist
The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory
invites applications for a CNCS Instrument Scientist. SNS is the most
powerful short-pulse spallation neutron source in the world. This unique
facility provides opportunities for up to 2000 researchers each year
from universities, national labs, and industry for basic and applied
research and technology development. The diverse fields of study include
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.
Responsibilities & Qualifications
Successful candidate will develop new world-leading capabilities within
the ORNL Neutron Scattering Science Division (NSSD) for condensed matter
