The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht has bundled its activities in the field 
of materials science using synchrotron radiation and neutrons at the 
"German Engineering Materials Science Centre" (GEMS). GEMS is part of the 
Materials Physics Division of the Institute of Materials Research. It is 
the user platform which provides external users with unique research 
instruments for their materials research with a strong focus on 
challenging in-situ experiments.

The instruments at GEMS are available for the use of research scientists 
and engineers from universities, research institutes and industry. The 
synchrotron radiation instruments are operated at the synchrotron ring 
PETRA III which is located at the outstation of the Helmholtz-Zentrum 
Geesthacht at Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron (DESY) in Hamburg.

The instruments using neutrons are located at the outstation of the 
Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht at the research reactor FRM II in Garching 
near Munich and are partially operated together with the Technical 
University Munich.

Our instrumentation is optimized for investigating engineering materials 
and we offer beamtime to external users. Even though the majority of users 
are from the academic sector, there is an increasing demand by industry. 
Within the Horizon 2020 project "ACCELERATE" we are promoting industrial 
research at large scale research facilities, in particular Central Europe 
(Austria, Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Romania, 

Within this framework we are searching for an
