Postdoc position in EU (ITN) project “pNMR”


Bruker-BioSpin GmbH, Rheinstetten, Germany and Ecole Nationale Superieure de Lyon, NMR Laboratory of High Magnetic Fields have an opening for a Postdoc Position in the field of solid-state NMR and is is looking for a candidate with a PhD degree in Physics, Physical Chemistry, Biophysics, or Material Sciences with particular interest in NMR hardware and solid-state NMR.

The prospective candidate will work in an International Training Network (Marie Curie program) financed by the European Union, in a project with the topic Paramagnetic NMR – Low temperature and/or ultra-fast MAS of paramagnetic materials, DNP under ultra-fast MAS conditions, and development of radiofrequency pulse sequences suitable for paramagnetic systems.

The project work will be supervised by Dr. Guido Pintacuda (Directeur de Recherche, CNRS), at CRMN , ENS de Lyon, Prof. Clare Grey, University of Cambridge (UK), Dr. Frank Engelke (head of probe development dept.) and Dr. Sebastian Wegner (head of solid-state NMR application dept.) at Bruker BioSpin.

Scientific qualification:

– PhD in physics, biophysics, chemistry, physical chemistry, or material sciences and engineering.

– Experience in NMR, experience in solid-state NMR is a plus.

– Interest in NMR hardware operation, rf pulse program development and engineering.

– Interest in developing new NMR methodology incorporating hardware aspects, rf pulse sequence philosophy, and paramagnetic systems like, e.g., new cathode materials and catalysts.

– Skills in using NMR related simulation packages (e.g. SIMPSON, SPINEVOLUTION)

The candidate will work in a multidisciplinary environment at the Bruker-Biospin facility in Rheinstetten, at the ENS high-field NMR laboratory in Lyon, and at the NMR laboratory at the University of Cambridge (UK). The duration of the project is three years, the financing of the position is for two years.
