We invite applications for a postdoctoral position in the field of  
Neutron Spin Echo Spectroscopy
at the Hahn-Meitner-Institut Berlin.

The Hahn-Meitner-Institut is a German National Laboratory, a member  
of  the Hermann von Helmholtz Association of National Research Centres  
(HGF) and has about 600 employees. It hosts the Berlin Neutron  
Scattering Center (BENSC) (http://www.hmi.de/bensc/), a user facility  
open to scientists from all over the world. To probe the structure and  
dynamics of condensed matter, BENSC provides the national and  
international research community with state-of-the-art neutron  
scattering equipment and expertise. 30% of the beam time at BENSC is  
reserved for in-house research.

We are looking for a highly motivated scientist with a Ph.D. in  
physics or chemistry and experience in neutron scattering. The  
successful candidate will provide scientific support and assistance to  
external users on the wide-angle Neutron Spin Echo Spectrometer SPAN.  
He/She will be involved in the development of new instrumentation  
concepts in the area of polarized neutrons and Neutron Spin Echo  
spectroscopy and support our  scientific activities in the field of  
dynamics and functionality in complex matter (magnetic and structural  
disorder, (spin)glasses, polymers, biological matter) using high  
resolution inelastic neutron scattering in particular Neutron Spin  
Echo Spectroscopy.

The post represents an excellent opportunity for young scientists to  
broaden their experience and develop their expertise. We offer an  
appropriate salary, related to the tariff system TVÖD, as well as the  
usual public sector social benefits. Applicants should send a letter  
of application, a detailed CV, two academic references, a list of  
publications and copies of degrees, quoting the reference No. SF  
2007/35, to Hahn-Meitner-Institut Berlin, Abt. Personal und Soziales,  
Glienicker Str. 100, D-14109 Berlin, Germany (EMAIL: personalabteilung at hmi.de 
). The deadline for the application is January 21rst 2008.
