PhDs & postdocs in MAS-DNP at CEA / Univ. Grenoble Alpes (France)

Several positions (PhD / postdoc) will be available at CEA Grenoble / Univ. Grenoble Alpes in the field of solid-state NMR with Dynamic Nuclear Polarization, for a start within the next 6 months. Projects range from instrumentation and method developments to applications on biomolecules (cell walls, amyloid fibrils, protein-ligand interactions, etc.) and advanced materials (inorganic NCs, functional polymers, supercapacitors, etc.). Some of these projects involve collaborations with industrial partners.

In particular, we are currently welcoming applications for a PhD position aiming at developing the selective DNP (sel-DNP) approach, recently introduced in our group, which allows high-resolution studies of biomolecular binding sites. (see DOI 10.1039/C8SC05696J). Deadline for this application is April 15th.
