Scientist (f/m) Materials Science

Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht Zentrum für Material- und Küstenforschung (HZG). Garching, 23.05.2017


Scientist (m/f)

Code No. 2017/WP 2

The place of employment is Garching.

The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht in Geesthacht, near Hamburg, and in Teltow, near Berlin, conducts materials and coastal research. You can find more information at
The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht is operating the German Engineering Materials Science Centre (GEMS), a centre for materials research based on the complementary use of synchrotron radiation and neutrons. Instruments using synchrotron radiation are operated at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht outstation at DESY in Hamburg, instruments using neutrons are located at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht outstation at the Forschungsneutronenquelle Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) in Garching near Munich, the most powerful German neutron source.

In this framework we are looking for a Scientist (m/f) at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht outstation at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum in Garching near Munich. The position is initially limited to the 30.06.2020 with the option of an extension.
Your Tasks:
You will integrate into our team at MLZ and take part to the planning and performance of materials science experiments at our neutron beamlines.
You will be in charge of a quenching and deformation dilatometer specifically designed as a sample environment for in-situ neutron scattering experiments for structural characterization of materials (Small Angle Neutron Scattering and Stress/Texture measurements via neutron diffraction). This newly acquired setup will be used to extend our instrumental suite and complement similar systems already in use at our synchrotron beamlines in Hamburg (DESY).
Your main task will be to setup and operate the dilatometer at the neutron source. During the initial implementation phase you will interact strongly with our synchrotron team in order to transfer the knowledge and experience already available. You will then plan and conduct conventional (offline) and in-situ experiments. During the in-situ measurements you will work in close collaboration with our local team who will help you master the neutron scattering aspects of the experiments.
You will be able to develop your own thematic line in the field of materials science within the framework of our in-house research which spans a variety of systems ranging from lightweight alloys, through intermetallic materials for high temperature applications, to innovative welding methods.
Working in this context of an internationally renowned large scale facility with a very profiled internal research program, you will thus be constantly in contact with state-of-the-art materials science questions and high level scientists.

Profile of qualifications:
You hold a PhD in Materials Science, Material Science Engineering, Physics or a related field. You have a good knowledge of the phase constitution and mechanical properties of materials such as steels or metallic alloys. Experience in materials characterization by scattering methods (X-Rays or Neutrons) is an asset. Your competence can be asserted from a record of recent publications in international peer reviewed journals.
You have good communication skills, are fluent in English and have a working knowledge of German or will soon acquire it.
You integrate easily in a multidisciplinary team and besides long term thematics are able to dedicate yourself to short term projects such as organising and performing experiments together with external users.

We offer an appropriate salary related to TV-AVH as well as the usual public
sector social benefits. The advancement of equality at the Helmholtz-Zentrum
Geesthacht goes without saying; in particular, we are striving to increase the
percentage of women in the science sector. Severely disabled persons with
equal qualifications will be considered preferentially within the framework of
legal requirements. Logo
