DNP NMR postdoc position at NHMFL, Tallahassee, FL

Development of High-Field Solution-State Overhauser DNP NMR Spectroscopy

Location: National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Tallahassee, FL

Application Deadline: Until the position is filled

A postdoctoral position is available, starting Fall 2018, at the U.S. National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) in Tallahassee Florida to carry out research on Overhauser Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (ODNP) NMR at high field (14.1 T). This position is fully funded for a period of 3 years by the National Science Foundation. For this research project, the NHMFL facility is equipped with a 600 MHz solution-state NMR spectrometer and a matching 395 GHz Gyrotron. We seek highly motivated applicants to work with the NHMFL DNP group to develop and implement new methods and experimental applications needed for enabling ODNP NMR spectroscopy of small to medium-sized molecules. The resulting solution-state ODNP NMR experiments will have applications in chemistry and biochemistry, particularly for characterizing limited quantities of molecules from natural product and pharmaceutical chemistry, from petroleum and polymer analytical chemistry, from food and environmental sciences, and from metabolomics.
The successful candidate will be involved in collaborative research with other experts at the NHMFL working in chemical and physical applications of ODNP NMR, as well as advanced microwave and RF instrumentation and technology. He/she will work within a team that consists of the faculty and engineers in the NMR and EPR divisions. Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Physics or a related discipline related to advanced NMR. Experience in experimental NMR methods is essential and in DNP and/or EPR is expected. 

This position will remain available until filled. To apply, please send a CV, a cover letter describing your experience and research interests, and contact information for three references to:
