Postdoctoral Position in DNP-NMR at Dartmouth

A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Professor Chandrasekhar Ramanathan in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Dartmouth College to investigate the spin physics of surfaces and low-dimensional spin systems using DNP-NMR.    

Our group works at the interface of quantum information processing and condensed matter and materials physics.  We develop and use magnetic resonance methods (including NMR, DNP and EDMR) to control and characterize the spin dynamics of solid state spin systems.  The lab currently houses a custom-built 94 GHz DNP system, a 7 T solid-state NMR system, a 9.4 T liquid state NMR system and zero- and low-field EDMR systems.  Additional information, including recent publications, can be found at  



The preferred applicant will have a PhD in Physics, Chemistry or a related field and strong experimental skills.   Knowledge of RF, microwave and cryogenic techniques and magnetic resonance methods is strongly desired. Interested candidates are invited to submit an electronic application (CV, brief statement of research interests and list of references) to 

The anticipated start date is October 1, 2017 or soon after.
