Oak Ridge National Laboratory - Postdoctoral Research Associate - Isotope Program

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to focus on research and development of isotope enrichment technologies including work in the areas of ion sources, plasma science, ion beam optics, feedstock preparation, isotope collection, and diagnostics. Our vision is to be the world’s premier producer of rare stable and radioactive isotopes as an indispensable contributor to the DOE Isotope Program, managed by the Office of Science for Nuclear Physics. Enriched stable isotope products are a growing and essential resource for advanced R&D activities to develop stable and radioactive medical isotopes; for quantum information systems development; and for many other nuclear and industrial applications. As part of our research team, you will work closely with a focused group of scientists, engineers, and technicians on challenging, fast-paced technical projects in support of the DOE Isotope Program, and specifically associated with the rapidly growing field of stable isotope enrichment. You will have the opportunity to learn and contribute to the sustained progress and innovation that we are seeking that will drive transformational changes in isotope R&D and production.
