Description of Institution

Forschungszentrum Jülich pursues cutting-edge interdisciplinary research on the pressing issues of our time and undertakes a multitude of tasks in the area of research management. It helps to solve the grand challenges facing society in the fields of energy and environment as well as information and the brain. With more than 5,700 employees, Jülich – a member of the Helmholtz Association – is one of the large interdisciplinary research centres in Europe.

Job description

The Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) operates at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) in Garching near Munich a suite of high performance neutron scattering instruments. It provides access to these instruments for scientists from universities and research institutions in Germany and throughout the world. Within the user program more than 1000 scientists visit the MLZ every year to perform experi¬ments in physical, chemical, biological and material sciences. In addition, JCNS is actively pursuing a research program in the fields of:

  • hard condensed matter science with a focus on magnetic nanoparticles, magnetic nanostructures and flux-line lattices
  • soft matter science with a focus on wide length scale investigation from nanometer to micrometer sizes of structures and rapid structural changes in soft-mater and biological systems
  • and materials science with a focus on structural examination of materials with inhomogeneities in the size range from a few Angstroms to some dozens of micrometers.

We are looking for three highly motivated

Instrument Scientists for Small Angle Neutron Scattering / Postdocs in Physics, Chemistry or Materials Science

Your Job:
• Provide local contact support for users as a 2nd instrument scientist for one of the SANS instruments (as the hard condensed matter scientist for KWS-1, as the soft matter scientist for KWS-2 or the materials scientist at the very small angle instrument KWS-3)
• Contribute to the improvement of the SANS instrument suite of JCNS
• Conduct and disseminate world-class research via publications and conference presentations in the fields mentioned above
• Represent and actively work on increasing the user base at MLZ

Our Offer:
• Exciting working environment on an attractive research campus, ideally situated close to the city of Munich
• The position represents an excellent opportunity to carry out research in soft matter using neutron scattering in a multidsciplinary team at MLZ
• Promoting professional development through participation in national and international conferences and through various training programs
• Limited contract for 3 years with possible longer-term prospects
• Full-time position with the option of slightly reduced working hours
• Salary and social benefits in conformity with the provisions of the Collective Agreement for the Civil Service (TVöD)

Requested Profile
  • A PhD degree in physics, chemistry, materials science or a related discipline
  • A strong background in experimental hard condensed matter physics, soft matter physics or materials science with focus on the structure examination
  • A proven track record in neutron scattering research preferably SANS would be a distinct advantage
  • Very good command of written and spoken English
  • Initiative character, creativity, good interpersonal, communication and presentation skills, result orientation and analytical skills
  • Ability to work independently and as a player in the SANS team
  • Readiness to work on-call-duty during the user operation periods
