EPR post-doctoral opportunity

University of Oxford Department of Chemistry
Postdoctoral Research Associate in EPR of Paramagnetic Porphyrin Arrays  (Professor Christiane Timmel and Professor Harry Anderson)
Grade 7: £30,738 - £37,768 p.a

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work with Professor Christiane R Timmel and Professor Harry L Anderson FRS on a project funded by the ERC for a period of 18 months.

The core aim of the CoSuN ERC Advanced Grant is to investigate cooperative effects in supramolecular nanostructures. Duties include carrying our experimental research and promoting effective interactions with collaborators, through communication, coordination of experiments, and efficient drafting of joint manuscripts. Experience in spectral and structural modelling and Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations to allow interpretation of ESR spectra would be an advantage.

This post will be based at the Centre for Advanced Electron Spin Resonance (CAESR), in the Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory, South Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3QR and will focus on the use of pulsed EPR techniques for probing long-range electronic interactions between paramagnetic metal centres.
