Institut Methods and Instruments for Neutron Scattering

  Postdoctoral Position

Reference No. G 2010/9

We invite applications for a postdoctoral position at the 
Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin for Materials and Energy GmbH. The 
Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin for Materials and Energy is a German National 
Laboratory and a member of the Hermann von Helmholtz Association of 
National Research Centres (HGF) and has about 1100 employees. It hosts a 
user facility with neutron and synchrotron radiation open to scientists 
from all over the world. To probe the structure and dynamics of 
condensed matter, the user service provides the national and 
international research community with state-of-the-art neutron 
scattering equipment and expertise at the research reactor BER-II. 30% 
of the beam time is reserved for in-house research.

This position is open to post-doctoral candidates who hold a Ph.D. 
degree in chemistry, material science, physics, or an engineering 
discipline and have a strong research interest in condensed matter 
physics, in neutron or X-ray scattering techniques. The ability to carry 
out independent research and an innovative outlook on the development of 
new instruments and techniques will be counted as strong assets.

The institute Instruments and Methods for Neutron Scattering 
successfully operates the Time of Flight (TOF) spectrometer NEAT. An 
innovative NEAT upgrade project aims at further enhancing the 
instruments capabilities. The successful candidate will participate in 
the development of innovative neutron scattering instrumentation and 
participate in the research program in the field of nanostructured 
materials for energy transport and storages using neutron scattering 

The appointment is for 3 years.

Applicants should send a letter of application, a detailed CV,  a list 
of publications and copies of degrees to Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für 
Materialien und Energie Berlin, Abt. Personal und Soziales, 
Hahn-Meitner-Platz 1, D-14109 Berlin, Germany, quoting reference G
