The Hahn-Meitner-Institut invites applications for the position of a 
post-doctoral research scientist who will participate in research 
programs in the area of small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) techniques 
and corresponding instrumentation programs.

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.

The position is open to scientists who ideally hold a PhD in physics, 
chemistry, biophysics or a related discipline and have a background in 
soft matter science related to proteins, interacting colloids and/or 
polymer science. Knowledge of computational methods as well as 
experience in neutron or X-ray scattering is advantageous.

BENSC successfully operates a SANS (V4) and a USANS instrument (V12) and 
is presently commissioning a new very small-angle scattering instrument 
(VSANS/V16) optimized for soft matter investigations. The successful 
candidate will collaborate with renowned guest scientists from all over 
the world in a broad field of research in the framework of the BENSC 
user program. She/He is encouraged to conduct her/his own research 
program in one of the above areas of structural soft matter research 
using neutron scattering facilities at BENSC in general, and support the 
instrument development projects at V16. The duties will also include the 
development of data acquisition and visualisation software for 
time-of-flight data.

This is a temporary position for three years. Applicants should send a 
CV, copies of diploma and PhD certificates and a list of publications to 
Hahn-Meitner-Institut, Abt. Personal und Soziales, Glienicker Str. 100, 
D-14109 Berlin, (e-mail: personalabteilung at hmi.de) before 5 July 2007 
quoting reference No. SF2007/10.

For further details about the position please contact Dr. Catherine 
Pappas (e-mail: pappas at hmi.de) or Dr. Daniel Clemens (e-mail: 
clemens at hmi.de).
