[NMR] Postdoctoral position in NMR Hyperpolarisation

From the Ampere Magnetic Resonance List

The Korvink group at the Department of Microsystems Engineering, University of Freiburg, is inviting applications for a postdoctoral position in NMR hyperpolarisation. The research work is funded by an ERC project that targets novel NMR detector concepts in the broad area of miniaturised NMR. The successful candidate brings along research experience in para Hydrogen induced polarisation (PHiP). Any additional experience from the broad areas of NMR or MEMS will be of benefit.

The ideal candidate will be a recent PhD graduate with practical experience in PHiP. This may include as examples: catalyst design, substrate design, and/or pulse sequence development for efficient polarization transfer.  Responsibilities will include supervision of graduate students and leading PHiP activities within the context of the broader goals of the NMCEL project. As a highly interdisciplinary project, strong team and communication skills are imperative. 

The environment at IMTEK offers an outstanding scientific setting, including state-of-the-art microsystem fabrication facilities, an RF lab, and a dedicated 500 MHz wide-bore Bruker NMR spectrometer. The NMCEL team will be composed of 1-2 postdocs, 3-4 PhD students, and 3-4 masters students. The University of Freiburg offers several facilities suitable for supporting this project and is within one hour from Bruker headquarters in Karlsruhe for potential collaborative efforts.

The position is immediately available, at the E13 level for one year, and is extendable to a total duration of 2 years. Applications for the position should contain a motivational cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a publications list, and a copy of the applicant’s most significant journal publication, preferably submitted via email as a single PDF file, to korvink@imtek.uni-freiburg.de. Applicants should be willing to travel to Freiburg for an interview. The university is currently seeking to increase the amount of female employees and is thus especially pleased to receive applications from qualified female candidates.
