Scientist (m/f)
(Postdoc (m/f), second instrument responsible)
code no. 2017/WP 4
The place of employment is Garching near Munich

The  Helmholtz-Zentrum  Geesthacht  in  Geesthacht,  near  Hamburg,  and in
Teltow,  near Berlin, conducts materials and coastal research. You can find
more information at http://www.hzg.de.

The  Helmholtz-Zentrum  Geesthacht conducts materials and coastal research.
It  runs  the German Engineering Materials Science Centre (GEMS) to exploit
the complementary use of X-ray and neutron radiation for materials science.
GEMS  operates  beamlines/instruments  at  the synchrotron radiation source
PETRA  III  in Hamburg and the national neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz
Zentrum (MLZ) in Garching near Munich. Among the GEMS instruments at MLZ is
the  horizontal  time-of-flight  reflectometer  with GISANS option REFSANS,
where user service and in-house research are carried out.

We  are  looking  for  a  Scientist (m/f) (Postdoc (m/f), second instrument
responsible)  who  will  contribute  to our in-house research programme and
will  actively  take  part in user support at the TOF neutron reflectometer
REFSANS. Your research will be on corrosion and electrodeposition of metals
at  the  solid-liquid  interface, which is conducted in close collaboration
with  the  Magnesium Innovation Centre MagIC of HZG in Geesthacht. The main
experimental method will be neutron reflectometry.

Close  cooperations  with  scientists  at  the MLZ in Garching and MagIC in
Geesthacht   are   expected,   international   collaborations   are  highly

A  Ph.D.  or  equivalent  in  physics,  chemistry,  materials science, or a
related  field  is  mandatory.  Previous  experience  with electrochemistry
and/or scattering techniques at large-scale facilities (esp. reflectometry)
is  highly  desirable.  Flexible  team  work  is  expected.  Publishing and
presenting  results at international conferences, good communication skills
as  well  as  good  general  English  language  skills are expected; German
language skills are an asset.

We  offer  an  appropriate  salary  related  to TV-AVH as well as the usual
public   sector  social  benefits.  The  advancement  of  equality  at  the
Helmholtz-Zentrum  Geesthacht  goes  without  saying; in particular, we are
striving  to  increase  the  percentage  of  women  in  the science sector.
Severely  disabled  persons  with  equal  qualifications will be considered
preferentially within the framework of legal requirements.

Please  send  your  application  indicating  job  offer  code no. 2017/WP 4
preferably  by  e-mail  (as  one  pdf-file  including  CV,  a  statement of
interest,  and  references)  to  personal at hzg.de.  Any  questions about the
position can be directed to this address, too.
