We are seeking a Senior Data Scientist to perform research and development that will yield novel and advanced detector systems, instrumentation, measurement techniques, and algorithms in support of applications from a broad user base. This role resides in the Advanced Radiation Detection, Imaging, Data Science, and Applications (ARDIDSA) group, Nuclear Structure & Astroparticle Physics Section, Physics Division, Physical Sciences Directorate, at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).
ARDIDSA focuses on the development and evaluation of novel and advanced radiation detector and non-destructive evaluation concepts for basic science, nonproliferation, national security, and intelligence organizations. The ARDIDSA group performs the research and technology development to evolve these advanced concepts from conception to demonstration or deployment with particular emphasis on sensitivity and specificity in actual field operations, including use of radiation transport codes to model these systems and analysis codes to isolate signals of interest.
Major Duties / Responsibilities
In this role, you will work with research staff within ARDIDSA and throughout ORNL to develop and apply modern data science/machine learning techniques to a wide variety of subjects including nuclear material detection, nuclide identification, and radioactive materials localization capabilities to support nuclear security missions. The research involves development and testing of novel data analytics processes and specialized algorithms to improve measurement efficiency and reduce uncertainties. You will also serve as a mentor to junior staff and as technical lead on projects, working with customers to meet deliverables and address technology or system issues. Results will be documented by publication in high impact papers, journals, conference papers and technical reports. The work will involve collaboration in a team environment to develop and present research proposals to generate new funding.
