A PhD position in The Molecular Analytical Science Centre for Doctoral Training at the University of Warwick is open for start in September 2017. After successfully completing 6 months of MSc modules, you will carry out a research project (further 3.5 years funding) in the Magnetic Resonance Laboratory under the supervision of Steven P. Brown (Physics) and Józef R. Lewandowski (Chemistry). Working together with Bruker, you will use state-of-the-art very-fast magic-angle spinning technologies in projects that develop and apply advanced solid-state NMR pulse sequences to pharmaceuticals and proteins. You should be from the UK or another European Union country. You need to have a first degree in a relevant scientific discipline (e.g., Physics, Chemistry) and be enthusiastic to work on a project that combines experiment with computer simulation and show a keenness to understand the underlying quantum phenomena that enables NMR to be applied to these important application areas.
