Career Center

The Grey group at the University of Cambridge invites PhD candidates to apply for a project involving advanced solid-state NMR method development combined with multi-spin quantum-mechanical computation. The application is characterization of hydrocarbon-bearing organic shales for potential gas or oil production. A full assay requires evaluation of the immobile organic phases in heterogeneous, mainly inorganic materials.

A 3 year postdoctoral position and a 3-year part-time (60%) technician position are available in the laboratory of Dr. Cyril Dominguez, University of Leicester.


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: August 7, 2017.

Project description

The Center for Biomedical Imaging (CBI) of the Department of Radiology at New York University School of Medicine has a strong and rapidly advancing reputation for collaborative innovation. NIH currently ranks our division in the top ten in the US by funding. Scientists at CBI have access to state-of- the-art clinical Siemens MRI scanners at 1.5 T and 3 T, as well as a PET/MR and a 7 T system.

Project title: Development of high-field (DNP)-NMR methods to detect quadrupolar nuclei on catalytic surfaces

A two-year postdoc position in solid-state NMR spectroscopy of advanced materials is available at the University of Lille, Lille, France. It will start preferably in December 2017.

The Research Scientist - Analytical will play an integral role in providing solutions to product development challenges in support of product development research. Leveraging your expertise in analytical chemistry and materials science, you will identify sources of variation resulting from component interactions and provide mechanistic understanding for formulations.

Responsibilities include the following:

•       Analytical method development to support R&D efforts.

Voxalytic GmbH, the microcoil company, is expanding its young team, seeking applications from specialists in solid-state NMR. The successful applicant will qualify our NMR detector products for specific applications, formulate product needs, and maintain customer relations. Ideally, you will bring along a PhD in solid-state NMR, with knowledge of the state-of-the-art, and the willingness to travel. Applications should be sent via email (PDF please) to:
