Hahn Meitner Institute Berlin

Post-doc position

The Hahn Meitner Institute (HMI) Berlin invites applications for a 
post-doctoral position in complex transition metal systems. The 
successful candidate will join an international team of scientists 
taking part in an active scientific program focusing in the physics of 
complex transition metal systems. Our group is currently focusing 
on the interplay of spin, charge and lattice degrees of freedom in 
transition metal oxides such as colossal Magnetoresistance 
manganites, and in the magnetic properties of transition metal 
molecule based magnets. The successful candidate will hold a PhD 
in physics or chemistry and will have a strong scientific interest in 
complex transition metal systems and experience in one of the 
following areas,

(a) The synthesis of complex transition metal oxides or transition 
metal organic-inorganic complexes. A working knowledge of the 
floating zone method for single crystal growth will be an advantage.

(b) Neutron or X-ray scattering, including powder diffraction 
methods and Rietveld analysis, single crystal diffraction or neutron 

The successful candidate will be involved in the synthesis and/or 
characterization of complex transition metal systems using physical 
property measurements and the state of the art Neutron and X-ray 
scattering facilities at the Hahn-Meitner-Institut.

The Hahn-Meitner-Institut is a German National Laboratory and a 
member of the Hermann von Helmholtz Association of National 
Research Centres. It is located in Berlin, the capital of Germany, 
has about 850 employees and hosts the Berlin Neutron Scattering 
Center (BENSC), a user facility open to scientists from all over the 
world. To probe the structure and dynamics of solids and liquids, 
BENSC provides scientists with state-of-the-art neutron scattering 

The position is for three years with a gross income of 40.000 to 
45.000 EUR per annum (depending on age and marital status the 
income may be higher). Applications to reference no. SF 2002/15 
including a full curriculum vitae, copies of degrees, list of 
publication should be sent to Hahn Meitner Institut Berlin, Abt. 
Personal und Soziales, Glienicker Str. 100, 14109 Berlin, Germany 
(email: personalabteilung at hmi.de).

The Hahn Meitner Institut is an equal opportunity employer. Closing 
date is three weeks after publication. For further information please 
contact Dr. D. Argyriou (argyriou at hmi.de).
