Your main tasks

Research activities in the Disch group are centered on the structure, magnetism, and dynamics in functional nanoscale materials. In the context of the CRC/TRR 270 HoMMage, we will study the magnetization and spin disorder in nanostructured magnets. Using neutron scattering techniques such as magnetic SANS, unique information on the nanoscale magnetization reversal as a function of materials processing will be gained.

We are seeking a highly motivated researcher (f/m/d) with a Master or Diploma degree in chemistry, physics or related subjects with interest in X-ray/neutron scattering techniques and nanomagnetism who enjoy hands-on technological development. The selected applicant will study advanced nanostructured magnetic materials in close interaction with our collaboration partners within the CRC/TRR 270. The project will combine in-house characterization with neutron scattering experiments at international large-scale research facilities.

As part of this graduate position, the successful candidate will be offered the opportunity to undertake further academic training (leading to a PhD).

Your profile

  • Above-average university degree (1st state examination, diploma or master's degree) in chemistry, physics, or a related field of at least 8 semesters of standard study time
  • A background in characterization of nanoscale materials or experimental techniques in condensed matter physics
  • Experience in X-ray or neutron scattering, applied to nanoscale materials or colloids, is highly suited for this opportunity
  • Experience in handling data and/or programming is desired
  • Fluent in oral and written English
  • A high degree of independence, while also encouraging interaction with colleagues

We offer you

  • an active interdisciplinary research environment between chemistry, physics and materials science within a Collaborative Research Centre and Research Training Group
  • a pleasant working atmosphere in a dynamic team
  • access to and training on state-of-the art equipment
  • further education and training and offers in the frame of CRC/TRR 270 and the university
