PhD position at Wageningen University - Microfluidic-Microcoil NMR Hyphenation for Molecular Identification and Quantification

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.

We seek a PhD student that will design and fabricate innovative NMR probes with integrated and home-built microcoil antennas that will be exploited for the characterization of minor components in bulk processes. The project is part of a collaborative project with Leiden University and the University of Castille-La Mancha  in Spain, and extensive collaboration is expected to result in hyphenating the devices constructed in the different sites. The project is focussed on technology development and comprises collaboration with industrial partners and a user committee. For this position we request an MSc degree in chemistry or chemical technology, or physics or engineering.
