The Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie invites applications for a post-doctoral position in Neutron Scattering Spectroscopy in soft condensed matter.


We are looking for a highly motivated scientist with a Ph.D. in physics, chemistry, biology or related disciplines with experience in neutron scattering along with good communication skills, who will join the Institute for Soft Matter and Functional Materials. She/He will support our scientific activities in the field of dynamics and functionality in soft matter and life science systems using high resolution inelastic neutron scattering techniques. The particular center of interest will be the area of polarised neutrons and Neutron Spin Echo spectroscopy. She/he will provide scientific support and assistance to external users at the wide angle neutron spin echo spectrometer SPAN and will contribute to the improvement of the spectrometer .


The Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie is a German National Laboratory. It is a member of the Hermann von Helmholtz Association of National Research Centres and has about 600 employees. It hosts the user facilities for neutron scattering, tomography and radiography at the Lise-Meitner campus in Berlin Wannsee and the electron storage ring BESSY at the campus in Berlin Adlershof. The new, ambitious Institute for Soft Matter and Functional Materials at the Lise-Meitner Campus in Wannsee combines expertise on versatile fields of soft condensed matter with the power of a neutron and X-ray scattering facility. Suitable applicants should be motivated to benefit from the unique combination of modern laboratory experimental techniques with neutron and X-ray scattering methods.


The appointment is for 3 years. Applicants should send a letter of application, a detailed CV, a list of publications and copies of degrees to Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie, Abt. Personal und Soziales, Glienicker Str. 100, D-14109 Berlin, Germany, quoting reference F 2009/17 (email: The deadline for applications is 15th October 2009.
