Description

Overview:

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate who will support the Diffraction group in the Neutron Scattering Division , Neutron Sciences Directorate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The Postdoctoral Research Associate will work in synthesis, processing, and investigation of structure-property relationships of sustainable piezoelectric materials using neutron powder diffraction guided by density functional theory calculations. In this position, you will be expected to contribute to the development of methodology for improving the piezoelectric performance of polycrystalline ceramics using texture engineering approach, studying structure-property relationships of piezoelectric and ferroelectric materials using neutron powder diffraction, and synthesis of new sustainable functional ceramics guided by density functional calculations in collaboration with computational scientists.

You will join a multi-disciplinary team that is developing the design of sustainable materials for energy applications. As an ORNL postdoctoral fellow you will have access to state-of-the-art facilities for synthesis and processing of ceramics, electron microscopy techniques, as well as access to world class facilities for neutron powder diffraction, and density functional theory calculations. The position will allow the postdoctoral scientist to develop expertise, broaden experience and interact with a diverse set of scientists working at ORNL's neutron, high-performance computing facilities, as well as the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences.

As a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science national laboratory, ORNL has an extraordinary 80-year history of solving the nation's biggest problems. We have a dedicated and creative staff of over 6,000 people! Our vision for diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) is to cultivate an environment and practices that foster diversity in ideas and in the people across the organization, as well as to ensure ORNL is recognized as a workplace of choice. These elements are critical for enabling the execution of ORNL's broader mission to accelerate scientific discoveries and their translation into energy, environment, and security solutions for the nation.

Major Duties/Responsibilities:
  • Contribute to the development of methodology for improving the piezoelectric performance of polycrystalline ceramics via the texture engineering approach using a Tape Casting Coater.
  • Employ methods to understand the structure-property relationships of electroceramics using neutron powder diffraction, and complementary techniques at ORNL.
  • Perform synthesis and processing of ceramics identified via theoretical studies.
  • Perform ferroelectric, piezoelectric, and dielectric measurements of ceramics.
  • Publish scientific papers resulting from this research and present results at appropriate national and international meetings.
  • Physical requirements for this job include the use of hand and eye protection gear, kneeling, sitting for extended periods of time, working with sample environment equipment, and possible exposure to ionization radiation normally associated with operation of neutron scattering instruments for scientific research.
  • Ensure compliance with environment, safety, health, and quality program requirements.
  • The Spallation Neutron Source facility is in operation 24 hours per day and 7 days a week year-round. Some experiment-based efforts may occasionally require work at off hours or weekends.
  • Deliver ORNL's mission by aligning behaviors, priorities, and interactions with our core values of Impact, Integrity, Teamwork, Safety, and Service. Promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility by fostering a respectful workplace - in how we treat one another, work together, and measure success.


Basic Qualifications:
  • A PhD in chemistry, materials science/engineering, physics, or a related field completed within the last 5 years


Preferred Qualifications:
  • Experience in processing of textured ceramics using the tape casting technique.
  • Experience in powder X-ray/neutron diffraction, and structural characterization using the Rietveld technique.
  • Experience in synthesis of ceramics using solid-state, molten salt flux, and/or hydrothermal methods.
  • Experience in processing of ceramics into pellets by sintering.
  • Experience in measuring ferroelectric, piezoelectric and dielectric properties.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Motivated self-starter with the ability to work independently and to participate creatively in collaborative teams across the laboratory
  • Ability to function well in a fast-paced research environment, set priorities to accomplish multiple tasks within deadlines, and adapt to ever changing needs
