Postdoctoral Position in the Synthesis and Physics of Correlated 
Electron Systems

The Hahn-Meitner Institut, 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 
(http://www.hmi.hmi.de/bensc/) – an outstanding user facility open to 
scientist from all over the world - and also runs several instruments at 
the Berlin Synchrotron Radiation Source BESSY. The structural Research 
Department undertakes world leading research in quantum magnetism, 
superconductivity and novel materials. It offers a state-of-the-art 
materials synthesis program as well as a full range of standard sample 
characterization facilities including x-ray laue and powder diffraction, 
SQUID, transport and thermal measurement.
We invite applications for a postdoctoral position in the field of 
correlated electron systems. The position combines the growth and 
characterisation of single crystals of correlated electron materials, 
along with the study of fundamental physical phenomena via neutron 
scattering. The primary method of crystal growth is the optical floating 
zone technique and the area of particular interest is magnetism in 
transition metal oxides. The candidate should have or be close to 
achieving a PhD in condensed matter physics or chemistry and should have 
experience of solid state synthesis and crystal growth perferably using 
an optical image furnace. Experience of neutron and/or x-ray scattering 
are helpful. The appointment is for three years, salary 35000-45000 €/year.
The Hahn-Meitner-Institut is seeking to increase the quota of women 
scientists. Therefore, women are especially encouraged to apply. 
Handicapped applicants will be given preference to others of equal 
The deadline for application is 31 July 2006; please send a cover 
letter, detailed CV and three academic references to 
Hahn-Meitner-Institut Berlin, Abt. Personal und Soziales, Glienicker 
Str. 100, D-14109 Berlin, Germany, quoting reference number SF2006/15.
