Project description

This position is aimed at development and application of multimodal PET/MRI in small animal models of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. We are interested in an individual who is firmly grounded in MR imaging theory and practice with an interest in biological applications. This work will involve various PET and MR methodologies in rodent model systems; including DTI, DSC and DCE MRI; simultaneous µPET imaging with both small molecule, antibody, and nanoparticle tracers; and focused ultrasound manipulation while imaging.

 A postdoctoral position is available in the Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Section (Richard Spencer, Chief) of the National Institute on Aging (NIA), an institute of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) located in Baltimore, Maryland.  The work will center on spectroscopic and imaging studies of cartilage and muscle tissue specimens as well as in vivo studies of animal and human subjects.  Our research currently emphasizes multiexponential and multidimensional relaxometry, and other advanced signal acquisition and processing techniques.  Other research oppo

We are looking for a solid state NMR spectroscopist to run our new 400 MHz wide bore Bruker dedicated solid state NMR system. We currently have a 4 mm HXY probe, a 4 mm HX variable temperature probe and a 7 mm HX probe with the magnet.

The system is based in the University of Limerick, a small but innovative university in the west of Ireland. The position is initially for 5 years and more details are currently available on the University of Limerick human resources website - deadline for applications is 5th August. 

A post-doctoral position is available for a candidate with a PhD degree in biomolecular NMR spectroscopy and an interest in either NMR methods development and/or applications to important biological molecules. The successful candidate will focus on solution NMR studies of supra-molecular complexes and/or conformationally excited states of proteins. Candidates who may not be finished for 1 year (or even longer) are also encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should submit a CV to Lewis E.

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in microscopic MRI (µMRI) study of articular cartilage. This position is funded by a new 5-year R01 grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). 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.

The laboratory Membrane Biophysics and NMR at the University of Strasbourg has an opening for a PhD position with the goal to investigateantimicrobial peptides associated with membranes or with polymers used in medical applications. The increasing spread of multiresistant pathogens inside and outside hospitals becomes a dangerous threat to human health. Immediate action is needed to overcome this problem and this project aims at preventing such infection in first place by protecting medical devices from bacterial invasion.

A PhD position in online NMR spectroscopy is available at the Laboratory of Engineering Thermodynamics in Kaiserslautern, Germany within the framework of a research project funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). More specifically this project will focus on expanding the use of NMR spectroscopy for reaction and process monitoring. Currently, NMR signals acquired for reaction and process monitoring often display very complex characteristics, making their analysis with conventional methods difficult and error-prone.

The Department of Materials- and Environmental Chemistry (MMK) is one of the largest departments at the Faculty of Natural sciences with about 140 employees. The extensive research activities of MMK, hosting the Berzelii Center EXSELENT for development of nanoporous materials for catalysis, span over Materials and Solid-State Chemistry focusing on different classes of materials; e.g. ceramics and glasses, self-assembled and porous materials, and soft matter.
