A postdoctoral position is available with an immediate starting date, to lead research in the area of NMR based drug discovery. The project aims to apply and develop methods NMR spectroscopy for the measurement of protein-ligand interactions, ligand binding epitope structure, and associated properties. State-of-the art hyperpolarization techniques are employed to strongly enhance NMR signals, and enable the characterization of molecular dynamics and interactions.

There is an immediate opening to apply for an NRC post‐doctoral researcher fellowship at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop high-resolution NMR higher order structure (HOS) characterization tools for the biopharmaceutical industry.

A NMR manager position is open in NTU Center of High Field NMR Spectroscopy and Imaging at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore.

The Division of Chemical & Biological Sciences at Ames Laboratory, a Department of Energy National Laboratory affiliated with Iowa State University, is seeking a postdoctoral associate with a strong background in solid-state NMR spectroscopy. The chosen candidate will become a part of a multidisciplinary team, consisting of Ames Laboratory as well as other U.S.

Position description:  Assistant/Associate Research Scientist position is available in the Department of Bioch

CNRS CEMHTI Laboratory, Orléans, France

Scientific context

The Department of Chemistry at Johns Hopkins University is searching for an NMR spectroscopist to oversee the operation of the Universities NMR Core Instrumentation Facility. The candidate should have at least a PhD degree in Chemistry or related field along with 3 – 5 years of experience in high-resolution NMR spectroscopy. Broad experience with liquid and solid-state NMR spectroscopy, electronics, and computer programming is desired. In addition to the NMR instruments, the facility also houses an EPR, a FTIR, a Polarimeter, and a Lyophilizer.

Musculoskeletal MRI / NMR in Human Subjects

AstraZeneca are seeking to recruit a solution-state NMR spectroscopy expert at their Macclesfield Campus, UK.

A position for a PostDoc or Associate is available immediately in the Gavathiotis Laboratory at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York in the area of NMR-based structural biology. Our laboratory uses structural and chemical biology approaches with the goal to characterize novel biological mechanisms that are contributing to cancer or other diseases and develop small molecule inhibitors and activators.

Postdoc position at ETH Zurich:

The Bushweller lab at the University of Virginia is seeking a Research Associate (postdoc).

The Bushweller lab is both a structural biology and a chemical biology lab. Structure/function studies of transcription factor drivers of cancer, particularly in leukemia, have been a long-term focus of the group. Chemical biology efforts to develop small molecule inhibitors of transcription factor drivers in cancer is also a focus of the group. More info on the lab can be found on our website:

We have an open position for a doctoral student in the NMR research unit at the University of Oulu, Finland. We are looking for a highly motivated student interested in working in the field of experimental and/or theoretical nuclear magneto-optic spectroscopy.

We are looking to recruit an expert structural biologist to join the PDBe curation team on the Wellcome Genome Campus near Cambridge. The work involves annotating preliminary PDB and EMDB submissions and extracting relevant biological information. The closing date for the post is 29th November 2019.

There is an immediate opening in my lab at the Astbury Centre (University of Leeds, UK) for a versatile structural biologist to work on cancer drug discovery in a collaboration with the Northern Institute for Cancer Research at Newcastle University.

One of the PhD positions will also partly deal with the design of stem cell substrates to improve on the culturing of stem cells for tissue engineering. Here also, we collaborate with partners with medical foci. We also have an ongoing very successful research line on ion channels.

Post-doctoral positions are available in the group of Lewis Kay at Toronto.
A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Nicolas Fawzi at Brown University. 

Applications are solicited for an individual to be appointed as an postdoctoral associate under the supervision of Alexej Jerschow. The research will focus on the study of nuclear spin singlet state life times and singlet relaxation mechanisms, the development of efficient singlet/triplet conversion pulse
sequences and methodology, as well as para-hydrogen induced polarization (PHIP).

The Applied Magnetic Resonance division of the Felix Bloch Institute for Solid State Physics offers an open position for a PhD candidate for three years, up to 75% workload, E13 salary group, starting as soon as possible.
