PhD/Postdoc positions available on DNP/MAS NMR and multi-frequency EPR

PhD/Postdoc positions available on DNP/MAS NMR and multi-frequency EPR in Konstanz, Germany.

About the positions:
Possible research projects are:
- To investigate if and how the high polarization generated in the photo-excited triplet states of certain chromophores can be used for DNP/MAS NMR.
- The development of "DNP pulse sequences". This project has an experimental component as well as a considerable theoretical component.
- The application and development of multi-frequency EPR spectroscopy to study reaction mechanisms.
The exact topic of the candidate's research can be agreed on in consultation and will depend on the candidate's background and interests.

About the candidate:
You have a strong interest in basic science, particularly in physical chemistry and spectroscopy. You are highly motivated and willing to work on solving complex, long-term problems. In your research, you are able to make the combination between theory and experiment. You have a MSc degree in Physics, Chemistry or a related field. For postdocs a PhD in MAS NMR is a plus.

About Konstanz and the university:
The University of Konstanz is a young university (founded 1966) and has since 2006 been a part of the German Exzellenzinitiative. The city of Konstanz is nicely situated on Lake Constance (Bodensee) near the Swiss border.
