CNL's Applied Physics Branch explores and investigates the development and applications of radiation based systems and detectors, including performing experiments, developing physics models and simulations, and building, testing, and evaluating prototypes or third-party devices. Work is performed in a variety of program areas, and in particular Safety and Security, Energy, and Health.
One of the projects that we support encompasses the development of detection technologies for nuclear safeguards, verification and security. Unambiguously there is need for development of more sensitive and less intrusive non-destructive analysis (NDA) instruments to perform partial tests on sealed containers crossing borders. This position offers several exciting opportunities for a young scientist/engineer to gain substantial experience and develop essential skills in a supportive environment.
