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 cold neutron 
triple-axis instrument at the Berlin Neutron Scattering Center 

The Hahn-Meitner-Institut 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 Center (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 solids 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 perform his own research program 
in the field of inelastic neutron scattering. 

                         Physicist, Chemist
   This tenure track position is available as of 1 January 2005, 
     the details of the contract will depend on qualification,
