Job Location: Oak Ridge, TN

The Neutron Sciences Directorate (NScD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) operates the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), the United States' highest flux reactor based neutron source, and the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS), the world's most intense pulsed accelerator based neutron source. Together these facilities operate 30 instruments for neutron scattering research, each year carrying out in excess of 1,000 experiments in the physical, chemical, materials, biological and medical sciences. HFIR also provides unique facilities for isotope production and neutron irradiation. To learn more about Neutron Sciences at ORNL go to: The Neutron Sciences Directorate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) invites applications for the Clifford G. Shull Fellowship Program. This postdoctoral Fellowship Program, named for the 1994 Nobel Prize winner in Physics, is aimed at attracting outstanding early career researchers to continue on a path of scientific excellence while substantially contributing to ORNL and U.S Department of Energy missions and goals in neutron scattering science. The Shull Fellowship is open to all fields of science and engineering that utilize neutron techniques and/or advance neutron science including accelerator science, and the physical, chemical, materials, biological, nuclear, and medical sciences.

Major Duties/Responsibilities:
As a Shull Fellow, you will have the ability to carry out and develop research programs in a variety of disciplines (e.g. hard and soft condensed matter physics, biology, engineering, and materials chemistry) to enhance the knowledge of the structure and/or dynamical behavior of materials using neutron scattering as a primary tool. Shull Fellows are also free to pursue and engage all fields of accelerator science and technology including the accelerator physics, beam instrumentation, superconducting RF technology, and high power RF technology.You will also be able to educate and promote the use of neutron scattering and accelerator science to new user communities; publish research results in scientific journals; and assist Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor scientists in the development of new instrumentation and optimized neutron sources to meet research program goals. This position is a fully-funded 24 month assignment, with an additional twelve months extension possible based on performance, with research support funding for travel, and materials and supplies. Shull Fellows are expected to contribute to the long term scientific mission of the Neutron Sciences Directorate in one or more of the areas of Quantum Materials, Materials Synthesis and Performance, Soft Molecular Matter, Biosciences, Advanced Neutron Sources, Accelerator Science, and Neutron Instrumentation and Optics.

Qualifications Required:
* PhD. in condensed matter physics, accelerator science, chemistry, materials science and engineering, biology, or related field. Outstanding candidates possessing related expertise are also encouraged to apply. * Your PhD graduation should be within five years of this application and you must complete all degree requirements before starting the appointment. Certain exceptions may be considered.* Current ORNL postdoctoral appointees and staff members are not eligible to apply* Strong written and oral communication skills as evidenced by a significant publication record Preferred Qualifications:* Previous postdoctoral experience* Previous experience in neutron or X-ray scattering, or accelerator science and technology* Desire and demonstrated ability to work in a team environment on scientifically challenging problems* Demonstrated potential for leadershipAdditional Requirements:In addition to a CV, you must submit three letters of recommendation and a short (2-3 page) statement of research specifically describing the role that neutron scattering or accelerator enabling science will play in achieving your research goals. Letters of recommendation and research statements can be sent via email to THIS EMAIL or uploaded to your online application.For questions regarding the Shull Fellowship, you may contact Steve Cherry at THIS EMAIL .
