PHYSICIST (m/f) (with Ph.D.)
as second instrument scientist for the diffuse scattering time-of-flight spectrometer with polarization analysis (DNS)
Advertising institute: JCNS-2
The Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) provides scientists at universities and research institutions in Germany and throughout the world with access to neutron instruments of the highest performance class.  For our instrument DNS (diffuse scattering time-of-flight spectrometer with polarization analysis) at the FRM II reactor in Garching we are seeking a second instrument responsible.

Job Description:

 *   Participation in the user operation of the diffuse scattering time-of-flight spectrometer with polarization analysis DNS at FRM II
 *   Involvement in the optimization and further instrument developments of DNS
 *   Involvement in the development of software systems for data reduction, visualization and data analysis of single-crystal time-of-flight spectroscopy based on large arrays of position-sensitive detectors
 *   Implementation of your own research projects based on the unique strength of DNS
 *   Participation in the institute's research programme with a focus on magnetism and correlated electrons systems

Your profile:

 *   Excellent and highly motivated Ph.D. in experimental condensed matter physics
 *   Extensive experience with scattering methods (neutron and/or x-ray scattering)
 *   Experience with software development
 *   Strong interests in studying challenging scientific and technical issues
 *   Willingness to engage in interdisciplinary collaboration with groups of Forschungszentrum Juelich and external users from research and industry
 *   Willingness to undertake official travel (e.g. in the context of conducting experiments at other research neutron sources)
 *   Well-structured and systematic working method

Our offer:

 *   Challenging and varied work in an interdisciplinary and international team
