Two Research Fellowships in Southampton, UK, with deadline 19 Jan 2017

There are two open Research Fellowships in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance in my group (http://www.southampton.ac.uk/chemistry/about/staff/pileio.page) at the University of Southampton:

Position #1:  Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in nuclear magnetic resonance in the research group of Dr Giuseppe Pileio, in collaboration with Prof Malcolm H Levitt. The project, funded by EPSRC(UK), concerns the development of hardware and methodology that combines supercritical fluids with long-lived states NMR and dissolution-DNP to prolong the storage of hyperpolarised spin order and allow it to be transported remotely from the production site. The successful candidate will be mainly responsible of the hardware development side of the project and will work together with a PhD student and another Research Fellow, both already appointed. Furthermore, the project is done in partnership with Jasco, a UK based company specialising in supercritical-fluids. The position is tenable from 13 Feb 2017 (or as soon as possible thereafter) with initial appointment for 2 years and there are already enough funds for a further extension of 1 year or more, subject to project requirement!

Position #2: Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in nuclear magnetic resonance in the research group of Dr Giuseppe Pileio. The project, funded by EPSRC, concerns the development of NMR methodology to probe translational dynamics in porous media by singlet-state NMR spectroscopy. In particular we are interested in developing new methods for measuring tortuosity in porous media and singlet-state enhanced q-space spectroscopy. The successful candidate will work together with a Project Student and another Research Fellow, both already working on the project. The position is tenable from 13 Feb 2017 (or as soon as possible thereafter) with appointment for 1 year but with the possibility of a further extension of 1 more year, subject to project requirements and mutual interests. For further details and how to apply please follow this link: https://jobs.soton.ac.uk/Vacancy.aspx?ref=785516EB-R

The closing date for both positions is 19 January 2017.

University of Southampton is a UK Russell Group university positioned in the top 1% of world universities according to QS World University Rankings. We have an international reputation for research, teaching and enterprise activities. Southampton is particularly well known for its magnetic resonance and computational chemistry research.
