This position is open for an entry level materials
scientist/Materials Engineer/Metallurgist at Ph.D level. INL has
traditionally excelled in the research, development and
characterization of materials that support multiple types of
advanced energy generation, storage, efficiency and security.
Currently the Materials Science and Engineering Department at INL
is seeking an entry level candidate at Ph.D. level in the area of
general alloy processing with expertise in thermomechanical
processing (TMP), e.g., rolling, forging, heat treatment, etc., of
You will be expected to extrapolate your past work on titanium
alloys to other titanium alloys as well as to other alloy systems.
The major focus of the position is to optimize thermomechanical
processing of commercial as well as emerging alloys for high
strain-rate applications. You should also be motivated to apply
their TMP knowledge to other alloy systems, especially Fe-based,
Ni-based, high entropy alloys, etc., in existing projects focused
on other applications in extreme environments such as high
temperature, high stress, high radiation environments and
aggressive environments (e.g. molten salts, supercritical fluids
and other corrosive atmospheres.
You will be expected to plan and carry out R&D under the
direction of an INL mentor. You will prepare reports and
manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals as well as
make presentations. You will also provide input to proposals
arising out of their work. In addition to traditional TMP methods,
experience in the area of advanced manufacturing, especially
utilizing titanium alloys, is also highly desirable. Candidates
exhibiting the ability to integrate modeling and simulations into
development of materials and advanced materials processing
approaches will merit special consideration for this position.
