[NMR] RF instrumentation position at NHMFL

RF instrumentation position is open at National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida, funded by a P41 grant from National Institutes of Health:

Responsibilities include carrying out engineering, R&D and operational tasks associated with high field NMR magnet systems, NMR spectrometers, radio-frequency NMR probes and associated technologies. Responsibilities include supporting the development of new capabilities for chemical and biological NMR in resistive, hybrid and superconducting magnets in the NHMFL user facility. The employee will provide instrumentation support to users on high-field NMR systems. Will participate in design and construction of the high-field solid state NMR probes. The employee will work with magnet designers and other technical staff members to refine the homogeneity and regulation of magnetic fields in high-field magnets. The successful applicant will work on a variety of R&D and engineering activities associated with the development of new NMR research facilities.

Seeking candidates who are motivated and eager to work flexibly and creatively in a cross-disciplinary team environment. Good communications skills and the ability to interact constructively with physicists, chemists, engineers, designers, technicians and procurement personnel Experience working with NMR spectrometers, NMR probes and RF amplifiers. Familiar with RF measurement tools including, but not limited to use of a Vector Network Analyzer. Experience with RF circuit design modeling software. Experience with EM field simulation software. Experience with CAD software for mechanical design. Familiarity with NMR principles and experimental methods.

Qualifications: Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, or in a closely related field; or an M.S. with at least two years post-graduate experience.
