Post-doctoral Research Associate in Radiation Transport at FRIB/MSU
24 January 2020
The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) at Michigan State University (MSU) seeks highly-motivated applicants for a postdoctoral research associate in radiation transport applications.
The primary mission of FRIBs Radiation Transport Group is to use computational nuclear analysis expertise and practical applications experience to provide problem-solving tools, technical solutions to quantify effects of beam interaction with matter and to support radiation safety. The group conducts modeling, analysis, and simulation of radiation transport, radionuclide determination of inventories and transport behavior, radiological source term characterizations, and contributes to active and passive radiation mitigation and monitoring architectures.
The primary function of this position is to perform work to quantify the effects of radiation in addressing challenging problems that arise from high-energy heavy ion beams interacting with matter. The prediction of prompt and induced radiation effects is a primary focus. The projects typically require the application of nuclear analysis codes, such as radiation transport and activation and depletion codes. In addition to using modeling and simulation for prediction, design, and evaluation, using modeling and simulation can also be used in projects as part of the process of analyzing measurement data taken at the facility during operation. Some projects may also require adding new capabilities to existing modeling and simulation software used at FRIB.
The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in physics, nuclear engineering, or related field and should have demonstrated expertise in modeling and simulation methods for nuclear engineering applications, radiation detector characterization, and data analysis. The candidate should have considerable programming experience with high-level languages on a Linux-based operating system. Additional capabilities, such as programming on parallel processors are a plus. The ideal candidate would have diverse experience in many application areas such as neutron and gamma ray detection, and radiation transport technologies. The ability to perform research and development in a collaborative environment is required, including excellent oral and written communication skills. As well as the ability to work with export controlled items.
