The Hahn-Meitner-Institut Berlin invites applications for a 
postdoctoral  position in the field of residual stress and 
texture analysis using diffraction methods.

The Hahn-Meitner-Institut is a German National 
Laboratory and a member of the Hermann von Helmholtz 
Association of National Research Centers. It is located 
in Berlin, has about 850 employees, and hosts the Berlin 
Neutron Scattering Center (BENSC, 
{ HYPERLINK http://www.hmi.de/bensc/index_en.html }http://www.hmi.de/bensc/index_en.html), a user facility 
open to scientists from all over the world. To probe the 
structure and dynamics of condensed matter, BENSC 
provides scientists with a state-of-the-art neutron 
scattering instrumentation and sample environment 

                       Postdoctoral position
             Materials Scientist, Physicist, Chemist, 
              The position is tenable for 2 years and 
                   available as of 1 January 2005

The position is open to post-doctoral candidates who 
hold a PhD degree in materials science, physics or 
chemistry and have experience in residual stress 
analysis as well as neutron scattering methods. Within 
the framework of ZET (center for residual stress and 
texture analysis) the successful candidate will be 
expected to participate in the operation of the especially 
designed diffractometer STRESS-SPEC located at the 
new neutron source FRM II in Munich. She/he will also 
use the materials science diffractometers E3 and E7 at 
BENSC for the analysis of residual stresses and 
textures within highly loaded components in cooperation 
with industrial partners.
