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 instruments for neutron scattering research,each year carrying out in excess of 1,000 experiments in the physical, chemical, materials, biological and medical sciences for more than 3,000 visiting scientists.

We develop, install, maintain and extend software for the SNS accelerator and beam lines to increase availability, improve experiment automation, and to allow efficient scientific data acquisition. We aim to provide control room operators, beam line scientists, and visiting beam line users with superior software for graphical operator interfaces, alarm handling, and experiment automation within a large-scale distributed control system infrastructure. Our software tools are often used beyond ORNL, resulting in a world-wide collaboration.
* Participate in the research, development, installation, maintenance and extension of control system software tools. * Emphasize collaborative development, sharing software with other accelerator and large experimental physics sites. * When tasked to solve a specific problem, based on local requirements, you strive to generalize, investigate existing tools for possible adaptation, or design and develop required new tools such that others can share their development and ultimately maintenance.* Participate in the design, development and maintenance of: Java-based user interface and service framework, SNS accelerator and beam line control system based on Linux, domain-specific languages, and Python, Drivers for integrating new devices into the control system, typically in C/C++.* This work is done in coordination with local colleagues as well as remote collaborators, utilizing distributed software repositories.
