Department of Magnetism
Two Postdoc positions
(Physicist, Chemist, Mineralogist)

We invite applications for a postdoctoral position in the Berlin Neutron 
Scattering Centre BENSC at the Hahn-Meitner-Institut Berlin, Germany. 
The Hahn-Meitner-Institut is a German National Laboratory and a member 
of the Hermann von Helmholtz Association of National Research Centres 
and has about 800 employees. It hosts the Berlin Neutron Scattering 
Center (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 the national and international 
research community with state-of-the-art neutron scattering equipment 
and expertise.

The successful candidate will support users at our thermal neutron 
diffractometers (see http://www.hmi.de/bensc/) and take part in the 
research program of the department which includes major activities in 
quantum magnetism and novel magnetic oxides. A broad knowledge in 
condensed matter physics or chemistry is highly desired as well as 
experience in scattering methods. A background in neutron or x-ray 
diffraction, crystallography and a strong scientific interest in crystal 
magnetism will be preferred. Staff at BENSC have access to 30% of the 
beamtime on all neutron scattering instruments for their own research.

The appointment is for 3 years, and the salary is according to the 
tariff system TVöD. 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 reference No. SF 
2006/21 (email: personalabteilung at hmi.de). The deadline for the 
application is 15 September 2006.

For informal inquiries, please contact Dr. Norbert Stüsser (phone:
