Job Location: Oak Ridge, TN

The Neutron Sciences Directorate (NScD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) operates the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) and the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS). Together these facilities operate 30 instruments for neutron scattering research, each year carrying out more than 1,000 experiments in the physical, chemical, materials, biological and medical sciences for more than 3,000 visiting scientists. HFIR also provides unique facilities for isotope production and neutron irradiation. ORNL is planning major improvements and upgrades to its neutron sources over the next few years including a Proton Power Upgrade (PPU) of the SNS accelerator complex and construction of a future Second Target Station (STS) at the SNS. Further, there are ongoing projects to improve neutron scattering instruments and technologies at both HFIR and the SNS.
