[NMR] 1. KTP postdoc with AZ; 2. PhD opening

Two openings in the University of Warwick Solid-State NMR group:

(1). A two-year post-doctoral position, starting 1st July 2019 (closing date: 26th March)

The Associate will apply NMR crystallography methodology to characterise pharmaceutical systems exhibiting disorder in the solid state in this Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project between the Solid-State NMR Group at the University of Warwick (Departments of Physics and Chemistry) and the global biopharmaceutical company, AstraZeneca (Macclesfield). The Associate will be expected to work mostly at AstraZeneca’s Research & Development Campus in Macclesfield, U.K., making some visits to University of Warwick. The successful candidate will work in close collaboration with Professor Steven P. Brown (University of Warwick, Physics) and Dr Jozef R. Lewandowski (University of Warwick, Chemistry) and Dr Leslie P. Hughes and Dr Helen Blade (AstraZeneca, Macclesfield).


(2). A four-year PhD position, starting September 2019

Supervisors: Steven P. Brown (Physics) and Jozef R. Lewandowski (Chemistry)

In this project that is supported by Bruker, you will develop MAS NMR methods that make use of state-of-the-art fast MAS technology. The project will combine experimental solid-state NMR in the University of Warwick Magnetic Resonance Laboratory (a suite of solid-state NMR spectrometers up to 700 MHz, also hosting the UK 850 MHz Solid-State NMR Facility, with a 1 GHz system to be delivered in 2020) with simulation, e.g., using the SIMPSON software that implements the density operator quantum-mechanics description of the NMR experiment. The focus will be on developing solid-state NMR methods using model compounds, of relevance for application to moderately sized pharmaceutical molecules and biological systems.
