Career Center

We offer a two-year postdoc position in NMR-based biogeochemistry. Phosphorus used as fertilizer is a vanishing non-renewable resource, and the long-term response of plants to increasing atmospheric CO2 is a key knowledge gap in climate change. In an interdisciplinary environment with plant and soil scientists, your focus will be work on intramolecular distributions of heavy isotopes - isotopomers - for studying plant-climate interactions on centennial timescales. Furthermore, you will use 13C and 31P NMR to study C and P cycling in soils.
Project and Tasks:

A three-year PhD fellowship funded by ANR is available to work in our group at Ecole Normale Supérieure, PSL University, Paris.

Project: Nanometric motions in disordered proteins of DNA double-strand break repair by NMR

Lab Manager for NMR service lab providing spectra and data interpretation to a wide variety of customers. Requires experience in small molecule NMR including structure determination, working knowledge of organic chemistry, and good communication skills.

Responsible for routine maintenance of spectrometers and supervision of lab personnel.

A NMR research engineer permanent position is open at the Institut Pasteur – Paris, in the Biological NMR Technological Platform. We are at the heart of core facilities dedicated to structural biology in the institute (cryo EM, XR crystallography, biophysics, protein production…). The NMR facilities host 800 and 600 MHz spectrometers equipped with cryogenic probes and sample changers, as well as a 500 MHz.

A 3-year PhD contract funded by the European Research Council (ERC) is available at the CNRS / Aix-Marseille University for the development of a new method for the characterization of functional materials using solid-state DNP NMR.

A Postdoctoral position at the CEA Saclay / LSDRM in Tritium Solid State NMR and DFT-Molecular Modeling is available

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.
