Our research is centred around solid-state NMR structure determination of biomolecules (fibrils, membrane proteins, protein-DNA complexes). Increasing the presently accessible MAS frequencies (150 kHz) to 200-250 kHz will improve dramatically the spectral quality and will, when successful, lead to a greatly improved resolution in the solid-state NMR spectra of large biological systems, e.g.

In a challenging career trajectory you are, as Assistant Professor in the field of nuclear magnetic resonance applied to (food) soft matter, responsible for setting up a new research team comprising PhD students, technicians and post-docs. Soft matter properties of foods will be studied under dynamic conditions by means of nuclear magnetic resonance techniques, both in spectroscopic and imaging mode.

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in microscopic MRI (µMRI) study of articular cartilage. This position is funded by a 5-year R01 grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), current till 2021.

PhD position available in RNA Biophysics at Karolinska Institute (Stockholm). 

A postdoctoral research associate position is available in Professor Chunyu Wang’s group (, in the Department of Biological Sciences at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, NY. 

PhD position is available where magnetic resonance methods will be developed for non-invasive assessment of biopolymer network formation and degradation under dynamic conditions such as stress and shear. Velocimetric measurements under shear (RheoMRI) will be combined with nanoprobe (PFGNMR) diffusometry to provide a view on biopolymer network formation/degradation at sub-µm scale.
