A postdoctoral position is available immediately in microscopic MRI (µMRI) study of articular cartilage. This position is funded by a multi-year R01 grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) till 2022. The project aims to determine a set of multidisciplinary molecular parameters that best describes the early changes in osteoarthritic cartilage in animal models and human at microscopic resolution. Quantitative correlation with the whole-body clinical MRI of cartilage and joint is also a part of the research plans.

A four-year PhD position, starting September 2019

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

A PDRA position in the NMR and physical studies of endofullerenes is available in the group of Malcolm Levitt, University of Southampton, UK. The position is initially for 1 year but extension may be possible. The project involves our NMR, neutron scattering and other spectroscopic studies of molecular endofullerenes, which are a fascinating new set of materials in which single molecules are encapsulated in fullerene cages. These systems are produced by our collaborators in Southampton so no synthetic chemistry is involved.

The BC Children Hospital Research Institute (BCCHRI) and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) at the University of British Columbia (UBC) seek to recruit an outstanding scientist for a full-time position at the rank of Assistant Professor (tenure track).

A PhD position is available in the AgroResonance laboratory to develop a new NMR-based sensor to measure flow and water quantity in the agroecosytems, directly in their environments.
