Job posting

The Institut of Physical Chemistry (group of Prof. Dr. R. Hempelmann  
at Saarland University)
is currently looking for a

Postdoctoral Fellow, application deadline 06/07/2007

in the field of neutron spectroscopy with polarized neutrons. This  
position is within a BMBF-founded project.

place of employement :  PSI, Villigen, Switzerland
starting date        :  01/08/2007
duration             :  3 years

The aim of the project is the implementation of a polarization option  
(groundbreaking wide-angle polarizers)
on FOCUS, the TOF-spectrometer at SINQ (Laboratory for neutron  
scattering (ETH Zurich & Paul Scherrer Institut)).
For further informations see: http://spectroscopy.web.psi.ch/focus/

The work will be realized in close collaboration with scientists from  
the Laboratory for Neutron Scattering.

The range of tasks covers (inter alia):

- definition of the project details (simulations)
- monitoring of construction and assembly
- test of prototyp and subsystems directly on FOCUS TOF-spectrometer
- implementation of the polarisation option on FOCUS
- experiments on relevant scientific tasks

Furthermore the candidate has the opportunity to take part in the  
scientific program of the Saarbuecken
group (http://www.uni-saarland.de/fak8/hempelmann/) as well as in the  
program of the Laboratory of Neutron Scattering,

The possible candidate should have a PhD in physics / chemistry (or  
related fields). We expect sound standing
knowledge in scattering methods to study condensed matter (preferable  
neutron scattering).
