The Paul Scherrer Institute is a centre for multidisciplinary  
research and one of the
world’s leading user laboratories. With its 1200 employees it belongs  
as an autonomous
institution to the Swiss ETH domain and concentrates its activities  
on solid-state research
and material sciences, elementary particle physics, energy and  
environmental research as well
as on biology and medicine.
The muon facilities at PSI are connected to the most intense muon  
source worldwide, the
Swiss Muon Source SµS. They are used by solid-state physicists,  
chemists and materials
scientists to investigate fundamental and technologically relevant  
aspects of structural,
magnetic and electronic phenomena in condensed matter.

The Bulk-µSR Facilities group at the Laboratory for Muon Spin  
(http://lmu.web.psi.ch - a division of the PSI research department  
Condensed Matter
Research with Neutrons and Muons) is looking for an

              **** Experimental Physicist ****
              ****  Instrument Scientist  ****

Your tasks:
·  Participation in the operation, maintenance and constant upgrading  
of bulk-µSR
    instruments at the Swiss Muon Source
·  Development of new, cutting-edge experimental techniques in  
    µSR at very high pressure,
·  To provide scientific support to the external users of the PSI  
bulk-µSR facilities,
·  To conduct and develop your independent “in-house” research  
programme with
    Muon Spin Spectroscopy as the main experimental technique.

Your profile:
You are a graduated PhD scientist with a broad expertise in solid  
state physics and/or
physical-chemistry. You have expertise in muon spin spec troscopy  
research and techniques.
You are familiar with some of the follo wing themes: data acquisition  
and analysis techniques,
cryogenics and instru ment control. You like to work in a team, to  
give support to and
collaborate with guest scientists. You have an excellent command of  
English and possibly German.
