Multi-modal MRI analysis of a large mammalian brain model

PhD and Postdoctoral positions available to join the Emsley group at EPFL, Lausanne

A 2-year ERC-funded postdoc position is available in the Lewandowski group in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Warwick, United Kingdom.

Duration: 2 years | Start: Aug-Sept 2018 | Application deadline: 22 June 2018

We have an opening for an 18 months postdoc to join our group at Laboratoire de Chimie de la Matière Condensée de Paris (LCMCP), part of Sorbonne Université (Paris). The applicant will use PFG-NMR to study transport and adsorption in multiscale porous materials in the framework of an ANR-funded project that combines the synthesis, characterization and modelling skills of four partner labs in France.

Porous materials are at the heart of key applications:

Funded PhD position available in Grenoble, France, on DNP-enhanced solid-state NMR

Project: “Improving DNP for the advanced study of glycopolymers”

A 3-year funded PhD position is available at CEA Grenoble (twinned with the University Grenoble Alpes) in the field of Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) NMR applied to glycopolymers.

A PhD position is available at the IBS Grenoble, on the structural characterization of the Sulf extracellular sulfatases.

An immediate opening for a postdoctoral researcher in Prof Alexander Breeze's lab at Leeds University (Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology) on an MRC-funded project on receptor tyrosine kinase dynamics and activation by cancer mutations using NMR, biophysics and simulations, in collaboration with Prof Michele Vendruscolo in Cambridge.

Two federally funded postdoctoral positions are available in the lab of Dr. Nicholas Fitzkee in the Department of Chemistry at Mississippi State University starting August 1, 2018.

Two post-doctoral fellowships are available in the Department of Radiology and
Biomedical Imaging at UCSF, in Dr. John Kurhanewicz’s Laboratory. The fellow
will be involved in hyperpolarized 13C MR metabolism and physiology studies
involving cutting edge preclinical models of prostate and renal cancer. The
studies will utilize living cells in bioreactors, patient derived tissue
slices as well as transgenic mouse models. These biologically relevant animal
models will be used to identify and validate imaging markers of disease
