Two Postdoc positions, one PhD student

Postdoc Magnetism of Thin Films and Nanostructures (ref. no. SF 2006/6)

The dept. of Magnetism invites applications for a postdoctoral position. 
The successful candidate is expected to build up his own research 
profile in magnetism of thin films and nanostructures using laboratory 
methods such as magneto-optical Kerr-effect (MOKE), synchrotron 
radiation (XMCD, XRMS) and neutron scattering techniques. In particular, 
she/he will be engaged in experiments at one of the world leading soft 
X-ray beam lines, the HMI undulator beam line UE46-PGM at BESSY.
A broad knowledge in solid state physics, especially in the field of 
magnetism, as well as experience in the use of synchrotron and neutron 
radiation is required.

Postdoc Quantum Magnetism (ref. no. SF 2006/7)

The dept. of Magnetism invites applications for a postdoctoral position 
in quantum magnetism. The successful candidate will undertake elastic 
and inelastic neutron scattering measurements on low dimensional and 
frustrated quantum magnets, physical properties measurements connected 
with quantum phase transitions, data analysis for time-of-flight neutron 
scattering data as well as testing theories of universality for field 
induced quantum phase transitions. She/he will do modelling of quantum 
behaviour of strongly correlated magnetic systems and comparing those 
models with experiments.
Good knowledge of magnetism and condensed matter physics, experience in 
neutron scattering, understanding of quantum theory of solids as well as 
good programming and data analysis skills are required.

PhD student Quantum Magnetism (ref. no. SF 2006/8)

The thesis work will be on experimental application of neutron 
scattering to test theories of universality in quantum magnets 
undergoing field induced quantum phase transitions. Measurements will 
focus on frustrated systems where new quantum ground states can emerge. 
Diploma in physics or equivalent.

Deadline for all positions is 7 April, 2006. Applicants should send a 
letter of application, a detailed CV, two academic references, a list of 
publications and copies of degrees to Hahn-Meitner-Institut Berlin, Abt. 
Personal und Soziales, Glienicker Str. 100, D-14109 Berlin, Germany, 
quoting the respective reference no. (email: personalabteilung at hmi.de).
