will start a research training network funded by the European 
Commission to study the properties of solid 3He. The magnetic 
properties of this material arise due to a unique interaction 
mechanism – the exchange of particles on adjacent sites. The 
experiments aim towards the microscopic investigation of the 
magnetic structures by means of neutron diffraction, combined with 
ultra – low temperature physics state of the art sensing methods for 
magnetisation, pressure, temperature etc. 

The expected results are of fundamental interest to a broad 
scientific community and provide ideal conditions for young 
scientists in an international team. Training comprises topics of the 
preparation of new materials and its characterisation by 
microscopic and macroscopic methods, data analysis and 
processing as well as the operation of a complex experimental set 
up. The scientific activities are accompanied by annual summer 
schools held in France, Great Britain and Germany. 

We offer positions for young scientists to participate in this effort. 
The positions will be located in the United Kingdom, France and in 
Germany, the contracts are limited to 3 years. The contract 
conditions correspond to the national regulations, support for travel 
and relocation is available. At the time of their appointment 
applicants should not be older than 35 years, they should be 
residents of a country which is a member state of the EU or an 
associated country. They should not be a subject of the state 
where the appointment is planned.
