Open Position: Neutron Backscattering Spectrometer Instrument Responsible

The Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) at the Solid State Division 
(IFF) of the Research Center Jülich (FZJ) searches for a physicist (PhD) 
as the second instrument responsible of the new neutron backscattering 
spectrometer SPHERES at the Research Reactor FRM II in Munich. Her/his 
main technical tasks will be the optimization of all components, the 
further technical development and the creation of Software for data 
analysis. All these activities take place in close cooperation with the 
infrastructure departments of the Research Center in Jülich. As the 
second instruments responsible she/he will be also responsible for user 
operation. In this context own research activities within the research 
program of the institute: centred on soft matter and polymer physics are 
very much encouraged.

We expect from the applicant  completed universities studies including a 
PhD in physics, interest in scientific and technical problems, ability 
for cooperation and collaboration, mobility (contact to other 
institutions and companies, experiments at other neutron sources), 
preferable some experience with neutron scattering, if possible in 
neutron instrumentation as well as some knowledge in scattering theory 
and soft matter physics. The salary follows the scheme of the public 
service, the position is limited for 3 years.

Please send appplications by e-mail to neutronscattering at fz-juelich.de 
<mailto:neutronscattering at fz-juelich.de> or by mail to Prof. D. Richter, 
IFF, Forschungszentrum Juelich, D-52425 Juelich, Germany.
