[Neutron] Open position at Saarland University in cooperation with Laboratory for Neutron Scattering, PSI

SINQ sinq at psi.ch
Thu Jul 12 10:34:50 CDT 2007

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

Postdoctoral Fellow

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

place of employement  : Villigen, Switzerland
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:
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
Saarbrücken group (http://www.uni-saarland.de/fak8/hempelmann/) as  
well as in the program of
the laboratory of neutron scattering (LNS @ PSI and ETH Zurich  

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).
