The Macromolecular and Microstructure Sciences (MMS) team at the NIST Center for Neutron 
Research (NCNR) is seeking a research scientist with a strong record of creativity and 
achievement in any area of nano and microscale science with a preference for the area of 
soft matter and rheology.  The candidate should complement and expand current scientific

instruments and one ultra-SANS (USANS) instrument, and for the design of a new Very SANS 
(VSANS) instrument.  Combined, these instruments probe structural features in materials 
ranging from 1nm to 20,000 nm.  Aside from leading a strong research program, 
responsibilities include helping visiting researchers conduct experiments, participating 
in various instrument activities, and helping to shape and develop the team's strategic 
long term plans.  Initial appointment is for up to four years.  Salary is in the range 
from $60,000 to $70,000 depending on qualifications and experience.
