Idaho National Laboratory (INL) is seeking a Seaborg Institute Postdoctoral Research Associate.

In this position, you will provide technical assistance in executing physics based experiments and calculations with an emphasis on radiation measurements that support isotope production and other irradiation for post-detonation nuclear forensics and nuclear detection communities. You will assist a research team in measuring photo-nuclear fission yields in transuranic elements.

Due to the diversity of the research project, candidates with a broad range of experience will be considered. Aspects of the project with include determining nuclear data (fission yields, branching ratios) extending to operations handing transuranic elements (Pu, Cm, Am) and fission products to support activities such as target development, chemical and isotopic purification of fission products and radiometric and mass spectrometric determination of short-lived fission products to elucidate independent and cumulative fission yields.

Publication of data and results is a primary role for this position.


PhD in physics, chemistry or nuclear engineering with an emphasis on radiation measurements and particle transport calculations that support isotope production and other irradiations for post-detonation nuclear forensics and nuclear detection communities.
