Description of Institution
Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) operates two large scale facilities for materials research: the neutron source BER II and the synchrotron source BESSY II, which provide deep insights into the structure of materials and the processes within complex systems. Each year around 3,000 scientists use the HZB infrastructure facilities. The Department Methods for Characterization of Transport Phenomena in Energy Materials operates the triple axis spectrometer for cold neutrons FLEXX in user service and engages in fundamental research on novel energy conversion materials with a particular focus on thermoelectric materials.

We invite applications for the position of a Postdoctoral Research Scientist.

Job description

The assignments include:

  • support of external users at the triple axis spectrometer FLEXX
  • independent performance of neutron scattering experiments at the triple axis spectrometer FLEXX
  • maintenance and further development of the spectrometer FLEXX
  • implementation of a high-quality research program on thermoelectric materials

What we offer:

Fixed term contract for 3 years. The employment contract is based on regulations for the German Civil Service (TVöD-Bund).

Requested Profile

The successful candidate should have a strong experimental background in solid state physics, in particular in inelastic neutron scattering and the demonstrated ability to work with guest researchers and technical support groups. Experience in thermoelectric materials research would be favorable.
