The Hahn-Meitner-Institut Berlin (HMI), Member of the Hermann-
von-Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft Deutscher Forschungszentren and the 
Technische Universität Berlin
invite applications for a joint appointment as

Head of the Department ”Magnetism” 
at the HMI
Full Professor (C4)
at the Department of Physics of the Technische Universität Berlin.

specialized in
“Studies of Magnetism by Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation”

Candidates with an outstanding international reputation for research in 
magnetism by scattering methods (neutron and/or synchrotron radiation) 
are invited to apply. For this field the HMI operates a large variety of 
modern neutron scattering instruments at the research reactor BER II and 
a set of new instruments are being built by HMI at the synchrotron 
radiation facility BESSY. The neutron scattering instrumentation at the 
BER II strongly emphasizes the use of polarised neutrons. HMI holds a 
top position in providing extreme sample environments (high magnetic 
fields and ultra-low temperatures). The successful candidate is expected to 
initiate further advances of the experimental facilities at HMI and BESSY 
and to perform forefront research in modern areas of magnetism, e.g. thin 
films, molecular magnets or quantum phenomena. Supporting external 
users in running their experiments is another important duty of the 
department he/she is going to be in charge of.

We expect the successful applicant to be committed to the general 
program of teaching and training of students at the Technische Universität, 
to inspire the scientific work in his department and to foster collaborations 
both locally and externally. 
Both HMI and Technische Universität are seeking to increase the quota of 
women scientists. Therefore, women are especially encouraged to apply. 
Handicapped applicants will be given preference over others of equal 

Applications must be received no later than January 15th, 2001, and should 
be addressed to Prof. Michael Steiner, Scientific Director, HMI, 
Glienicker Straße 100, D-14109 Berlin, Further information may be
