The Hahn-Meitner-Institut invites applications for the 
position of an instrument scientist in the area of neutron 
scattering. The candidate will be the responsible 
scientist for a time-of-flight instrument at HMI.

The Hahn-Meitner-Institute is a German National 
Laboratory and a member of the Hermann von Helmholtz 
Association of National Research Centres and has about 
850 employees. It hosts the Berlin Neutron Scattering 
Centre (BENSC)
({ HYPERLINK http://www.hmi.de/bensc/) }http://www.hmi.de/bensc/), a user facility open to 
scientists from all over the world. To probe the structure 
and dynamics of solid and liquids, BENSC provides the 
national and international research community with state-
of-the-art neutron scattering equipment and expertise. 
The successful candidate will develop neutron scattering 
instrumentation and techniques, will support BENSC 
users, in particular in studies of condensed matter and 
will do research in the field of soft and complex matter 
by using inelastic neutron scattering techniques. 

                         Physicist, Chemist
             The position is available as of 1 May 2003
       The position is presently tenable for 3 years with an 
            option to turn it into a permanent position.
The position is open to confirmed scientists who hold a 
PhD in experimental physics, material science or 
chemistry. The successful candidate will be responsible 
for the operation, maintenance, continuous enhancement 
and modernisation of a state-of-the-art time-of-flight 
spectrometer at the research reactor BER-II at HMI, 
including scientific and technical responsibility for 
carrying out the user program on this instrument. 

A broad knowledge in condensed matter physics, 
neutron scattering and/or X-ray methods will be required 
as well as experience in neutron scattering instrument 
development and operation and technical project
