Career Center

We are pleased to announce openings for PhD students at the institutions joined within the EU funded Zero and Ultra-Low Fields Nuclear Magnetic Resonance – Innovative Training Network (www.zulf.eu). The employment is fully funded for 3 years. The goal of the project is to train a group of young researchers that would be able to address challenges in the field of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), particularly under the conditions of ultra-low or truly zero magnetic fields.

The Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), in collaboration with the CNRS Centre de Biophysique Moléculaire (CBM) in Orléans (France), is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position in Biomolecular NMR.

 

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) 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.

A fixed-term postdoctoral appointment in magnetic resonance is available to work with Dr Meghan Halse in the Centre for Hyperpolarisation in Magnetic Resonance (https://www.york.ac.uk/chym/) at the University of York to develop low-field NMR instrumentation and methods to study the signal amplificat

A postdoctoral position is available immediately to complete our team working on in-situ and in operando NMR/MRI of batteries and electrochemical devices in the laboratory of Alexej Jerschow at New York University (NYU). There is also an opportunity to be involved in other ongoing projects in the laboratory. The lab is located in newly renovated facilities of the Molecular Nanoscience Center at NYU’s Washington Square Campus in the heart of Manhattan.

A postdoctoral position is available at the Technical University of Dortmund for a motivated and qualified scientist who is interested to continue the development of miniaturised resonators for EPR. These microresonators are optimised for detecting small samples (down to the nanometer range) with high sensitivity. Candidates should have a firm background and proven track record in the field of magnetic resonance and an interest in numerical simulations of the resonators.

ERC-funded PhD position is available in Marseille on the structural investigation of functional organic materials by DNP and NMR

Project title: “Structural investigation of polymorphic organic powders at natural isotopic abundance”

At Wageningen University we currently have a position for a PhD student in the field of magnetic resonance. The position is well embedded in a cross-disciplinary collaboration with Leiden University as well as industry. Excellent facilities are available, comprising 300, 400, 500, 600 and 700 MHz NMR spectrometers, equipped with high-performance PFG, (rheo)MRI and HR/CPMAS capabilities.

Two post-doctoral positions (start date – June/July 2018) are available in the group of Dr. Lalit Deshmukh at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at University of California San Diego (UCSD). Both positions will be available for 2 years with the possibility of extension.

Ph.D. or post-doctoral positions in NMR/structural biology at the Centre for Biomolecular Drug Research (BMWZ), Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany.

Research

An Post-doc position is opened for 15 months in NMR and MRI in the MRIFood team at Rennes, France.

 

The zero and ultralow field NMR (ZULF-NMR) consortium will be recruiting 11 early-stage researchers (ESRs) to start in 1 oct 2018, see www.zulf.eu. This is funded under the EU Marie Curie scheme. One ESR will be based in the laboratory of Malcolm Levitt in Southampton, for 3 years.

Two PhD studentships on oxygen-17 isotopic labeling using mechanochemistry & NMR are available at the University of Montpellier (France). The first is focused on the study of organic compounds, the second on inorganic ones.
The application deadline for both positions is March 15th 2018, for a starting date on October 1st.
