The Hahn-Meitner-Institute is a German National Laboratory and a 
member of the Hermann von Helmholtz Association of National Research 
Centres. It hosts the Berlin Neutron Scattering Centre (BENSC) 
(http://www.hmi.de/bensc/), a user facility open to scientists from  
all over the world. To probe the structure and dynamics of solids and 
liquids, BENSC provides scientists with state-of-the-art neutron 
scattering research opportunities. 

Physicist , chemist, material scientist 
(and related sciences)
The position is tenable for 1 year

Design and optimisation of neutron scattering instruments at the ISIS 
spallation source

The department SF1 (Methods and Instruments) participates in a broad 
cooperation project of several European countries, which is funded by 
the European Union. The project aims at the development of 
instrumentation on the new Target Station 2 at ISIS, Rutherford 
Appleton Laboratory, UK. ISIS is the leading spallation neutron 
facility in the world. 

In the framework of this collaboration we are looking for a physicist 
or a scientist with related background with considerable and proven 
experience in neutron scattering. Together with HMI and ISIS 
scientists the successful candidate will work on the design and 
optimisation of neutron scattering instruments or components of these 
instruments at ISIS Target Station 2, which is expected to be 
operational by the end of 2007. The work will  include the use of 
advanced numerical simulation software tools.

For further details about the post please contact Prof. F. Mezei (e-
mail: mezei at hmi.de)  Applicants should send a letter of application, 
CV and a list of publications to Hahn-Meitner-Institut, Abt. Personal 
und Soziales, Glienicker Str. 100, D-14109 Berlin) before 20 June 
2006 quoting reference No. SF 2006/13.
