SF 2007/24

The Hahn-Meitner Institute is a research centre of the Federal Republic 
of Germany and the land Berlin with about 800 employees working at 
Berlin-Wannsee and Berlin-Adlershof. A key activity is basic research on 
the structure of condensed matter using neutron scattering at the 
research reactor BER II (Berlin-Wannsee) and synchrotron radiation 
techniques at BESSY (Berlin-Adlershof). The Hahn Meitner Institute hosts 
the Berlin Neutron Scattering Center (BENSC), a user facility open to 
scientists from all over the world as well as operating a series of 
leading instruments at BESSY for the study of magnetic ordering.

We invite applications for a materials scientist position to support 
international users on the energy dispersive synchrotron materials 
science beamline EDDI (Energy Dispersive DIfraction) at the storage ring 
BESSY II. The successful candidate will also work on the scientific and 
technical enhancements of the beamline experimental station and the 
implementation of complementary measuring techniques (e.g. mechanical 
testing methods) for materials characterization, in particular for the 
analysis of residual stresses. It is also expected that the successful 
candidate deals with research projects concerning methodical questions 
and problems related to materials sciences in close cooperation with 
partners from university and industry in the fields of residual stress-, 
texture- and microstructure analysis of technical materials and 
components. Furthermore fundraising of third-party funds (DFG, BMBF, 
industrial cooperations) in the above stated research areas is mandatory.

The position is open to confirmed scientists who hold a PhD (e.g. in 
materials sciences, mechanical engineering, crystallography). Profound 
knowledge is required in the field of X-ray diffraction, in particular 
energy dispersive diffraction, experience in the analysis and the 
evaluation of residual stresses, crystallographic textures and the 
microstructure of technical materials as well as extensive knowledge in 
the field of materials engineering. For the technical upgrading of the 
peripheral instrumentation of the EDDI working group knowledge and 
experience in construction and dimensioning of mechanical/technical 
systems is mandatory.

Depending on the qualifications of the applicant, recruitment on a 
two-year probation period with an option for a permanent position is 
possible. Applications including a full curriculum vitae and two 
academic references should be sent under NO. SF 2007/24 to 
Hahn-Meitner-Institut Berlin, Abt. Personal und Soziales, Glienicker 
Str. 100, 14109 Berlin, Germany (email: personalabteilung at hmi.de). The 
deadline is 15 October 2007. For informal inquiries, please contact 
Prof. Dr. Christoph Genzel (phone: +49-30-6392-5771, email: genzel at hmi.de).
