Post-doctoral position on "New approaches for 17O solid state NMR spectroscopy"

We would like to announce an open position at the engineer or post-doc level in our group at Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris.

The candidate will work on news applications of high-resolution relaxometry in industry and health sciences. The project involves several exciting new projects with new collaborators from industry.

The laboratory Membrane Biophysics and NMR at the University of Strasbourg has an opening for a postdoctoral position with experience in using solid-state NMR for the analysis of peptides and proteins. The aim of the project is to reveal the structural determinants that define the highly specific lipid recognition motif of a transmembrane protein and to characterize changes in structure, dynamics, oligomerization and topology of the protein as well as the lipids during recognition.

The U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) is currently recruiting a Chief of Structural Biology in the NCI Center for Cancer Research (CCR). This is a new position that reflects NCI’s commitment and support for structural biology and molecular biophysics. The incoming Chief will be the intellectual and administrative leader of the NCI intramural structural biology/biophysics research program and the NCI structural biology/biophysics community.

The Chair of Inorganic Chemistry III at the University of Bayreuth offers two Ph.D. positions for three years with possibility of extension by one year (salary of 50-67% E13 TV-L). We seek to fill the position at your earliest convenience. Both projects are part of the SFB 1357 “MICROPLASTICS - Understanding mechanisms and processes, biological effects, transport and formation: From model to complex systems as a basis for new approaches to solutions.”

We are looking for a PhD student who will develop and apply advanced high-resolution NMR/MRI techniques to study micron-scale confined flow in complex fluids.

The postdoctoral researcher will join an ERC-funded project, led by Patrick Giraudeau, on the development of dissolution dynamic polarization for analytical chemistry. The project aims at bringing the reproducibility of dissolution DNP to the level that will unlock an array of applications in metabolomics and other “omics” sciences. This requires working at the interface between hardware development, NMR spectroscopy and analytical chemistry.

We are looking for:
Solid-state NMR research technician (PhD/MSc)
University of Groningen, Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials

Post Doctoral Scientist: School of Life and Environmental Sciences (SOLES), University of Sydney, Australia.

Project Title: “NMR of cellular systems”

Laboratory: Philip Kuchel

A one-year postdoctoral research position is offered at Hunter College of the City University of New York, beginning around April 1, 2019. The research program concerns solid-state NMR of materials being evaluated for advanced all-solid state rechargeable batteries. The requirements for the position are a Ph.D. in chemistry, physics, or engineering, and significant experience in standard solid-state NMR techniques (e.g. CP/MAS, MQ-MAS, etc). Experience with pulsed-field-gradient diffusion methods is advantageous.

Merck (US), one of the leading biopharmaceutical companies, has an opening of a NMR postdoc fellow. Folks with a solution or solid-state NMR Ph.D. training are welcome to apply. This is an excellent opportunity to advance and apply this cutting-edge technique for solving critical scientific issues of biophysical characterizations in pharmaceutical sciences. It is a three-year position. Merck provides competitive salary, relocation and benefit package.
