The Hahn-Meitner-Institute in Berlin is a German National Laboratory and a
member of the Hermann von Helmholtz Association of National Research Centres
and has about 850 employees. The work of the HMI is concentrated mainly on
solid-matter and materials research, and in particular on the topics 'struc-
tural research' and 'solar energy research'. In the field of 'structural
research'mostly methods based on ion or neutron beams are used.

The use of 3He polarisation filters opens new experimental fields in the re-
search with polarised neutron. Therefore, investigations on such filter cells
and the construction of a filling station to supply them is a focal point in
the instrumental development programme at the HMI. Successful candidates will
work in an application-oriented as well as versatile way in an international
project in the field. The aim is to realise further progress in the develop-
ment of both the filling station and the 3He filter itself, in the last to 
enable routine operation.

The candidate holds a PhD in physics and shows a good knowledge in atomic phy-
sics and in optics. He/she has experience in laser application, vacuum techni-
ques and - in particular - in instrumental development. Knowledge in surface 
science and familiarity in neutron scattering will be an advantage.
