The Hilty lab in the Chemistry Department at Texas A&M University is seeking to fill a postdoctoral position with immediately available starting date.

The goal of the research project is to determine mechanisms of industrially relevant post-metallocene catalysts for olefin polymerization. This goal will be achieved by the application of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) in combination with new hyperpolarization methods, which allow for in-situ, real-time mechanistic investigations of ongoing polymerization reactions.

A Ph.D. position and a 1-year post-doctoral position are available at the Institute for Natural Product Research (ICSN) in the Paris-Saclay area. The project concerns the development of fast solution-state NMR experiments based on spatial encoding, with applications to reaction monitoring and hyperpolarisation.

The group of Prof. Dr. Rasmus Linser at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, Germany, is looking for additional group members in the field of ultra fast-MAS bio-NMR.

We look for a postdoc  to work on intramolecular distributions of heavy isotopes - isotopomers - for estimating biogeochemical fluxes on century timescales, a key unknown in Earth System Models. Quantification of deuterium and 13C isotopomers by dedicated NMR methods is a central part of the project (PNAS 2015, .

A 24-month post-doctoral position is opened in the framework of a collaborative project between TOTAL/HUTCHINSON and CNRS (ICMPE, East Paris Institute of Chemistry and Materials Science, UMR 7182 CNRS / University Paris-East, Thiais, France). The post-doctoral researcher will develop his / her research activities at the Hutchinson Research Center (Châlette-sur-Loing, France) and at ICMPE (Thiais), in the Department "Complex Polymer Systems". He / she will be co-supervised by Brice Gabrielle (Hutchinson) and Cédric Lorthioir (ICMPE). Hutchinson is a world leader in rubber processing.

A PhD position is available in the group of Andrew Pell at the Department of Materials Environmental and Environmental Chemistry (MMK), Stockholm University (Sweden), in solid-state NMR of paramagnetic materials.

Closing date: May 2, 2017.

Project description

There is an opportunity for a talented NMR spectroscopist to join the NMR group in the Structural Biology Department, to explore the structure and function of proteins of therapeutic interest. The successful candidate will be responsible for applying NMR-based strategies to support small molecule and large molecule drug discovery programs.

A two-year post-doctoral position in liquid-state NMR methodology is available in the group of Patrick Giraudeau at the University of Nantes, France, starting preferably in September 2017. It will involve a close collaboration with the group of Sami Jannin in Lyon, France, with frequent travel to Lyon for DNP experiments.

Bridge12 is hiring and there are currently two open position in the area of magnetic resonance (EPR/NMR/DNP):

A PhD position is available in the group of Andrew Pell at the Department of Materials Environmental and Environmental Chemistry (MMK), Stockholm University (Sweden), on paramagnetic solid-state NMR spectroscopy.

Closing date: May 2, 2017.

Project description

A three-year PhD studentship is available to study the dynamics of proteins by solution-state NMR spectroscopy. A major component of the research will be based around the development of new NMR-based methods with applications to histone deacetylases and the von Willebrand Factor.

The studentship will be based at the Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology, University College London (UCL), where excellent facilities are available to support the project, including access to state-of-the-art NMR spectrometers ranging from 500 MHz to 950 MHz.
