PhD position in computational aspects of NMR spectroscopy

A PhD position is available to join the Emsley group at EPFL, Lausanne

We are looking for highly motivated candidates to take up a PhD position developing new computational methods in NMR spectroscopy to address the challenging problems of determining atomic-level structures in chemistry and materials science. In particular we will be working on methods to predict chemical shifts using machine learning approaches. Examples of our recent work and the application areas that we work on can be found on our website:

We are looking for highly motivated candidates with strong scientific background, independence, and who enjoy teamwork. You should hold a relevant qualification in chemistry, physics or related disciplines. Skills in developing computational methods are a plus.

Our laboratory at EPFL is part of one the world’s leading chemistry departments, and is located Lausanne on the north shore of Lake Geneva. The laboratory is equipped with unique state of the art NMR spectrometers and advanced computing facilities.

Motivated candidates should contact Lyndon Emsley with a CV by email at Applications will be reviewed from February 1st onwards, until the position is filled.
