invite applications for a joint appointment as
Head of Department
„Methods and Instruments“ at HMI
University Professor (W3)
at Faculty II, Mathematics and Science, of the TUB,
Methods and Instruments of Neutron Scattering
We invite candidates with an international reputation for using neutrons
to investigate structure and dynamics of condensed matter. For this
research HMI operates the research reactor BER II and the Berlin Centre
for Neutron Scattering BENSC with a wide variety of modern instruments.
Particular emphasis is put upon scattering of polarized neutrons and
extreme sample environments (very high magnetic fields, very low
temperatures) where HMI holds a leading position. This position should
be further strengthened by continuous R&D on methods, source,
instrumentation and sample environments. To this end, we expect the
successful candidate to provide significant ideas for further advancing
the installations and the research in an active field for which neutrons
are an essential probe. Supporting external users in running their
experiments is another important duty of the department he/she is going
to be in charge of. Therefore, perennial experience in operating a user
centre will be appreciated.
We expect in particular that the successful applicant will be committed
to the general program of teaching and examining of students at the TUB,
will inspire the scientific work in his department and will foster
internal and external collaborations. To be appointed, he/she must meet
the requirements of the Berlin Higher Education Act (§ 100 BerlHG, more
detailed information available on request).
As HMI and TUB care about equal opportunities for men and women
scientists, qualified women are especially encouraged to apply.
Handicapped applicants will be given preference over others of equal
