Available Positions

Research in the group is highly interdisciplinary involving chemistry and physics (developing methods in NMR and DNP) materials science aspects (synthesis, device assembly, electrochemistry and characterization)

Positions are available for:

MSc and PhD students:

  • Structure-function studies of electrode and electrolyte materials and their interface in energy storage and conversion systems using a plethora of characterization tools (XRD, XPS, Electron microscopy) and by advanced solid state NMR and MAS-DNP.
  • Method development for high sensitivity NMR via endogenous and exogenous MAS-DNP.
  • Probing ion transport in solids and across interfaces by new NMR approaches.

Postdoctoral fellows:

  • Method development and application of MAS-DNP and solid state NMR
    Requirement: PhD in Chemistry/Physics, background in solid state NMR and/or DNP and/or EPR spectroscopy.
  • Synthesis of new electrode and electrolyte materials
    Requirement: PhD in Chemistry/materials science, background in solid state chemistry: synthesis and characterization, excellent analytical and technical skills.

Research Assistant/Staff Scientist:

  • Senior position which involves advanced research projects and co-management of the NMR/DNP systems.
  • Candidates should have a PhD in Chemistry/Physics/Engineering with proven experience in magnetic resonance. Postdoctoral experience or equivalent is an advantage.
  • Excellent communication skills in English and ability to work in a research team are required.
  • Possibility for tenure track for suitable candidates.

To apply please send a cover letter describing your research interests, CV and list of publications to Dr. Michal Leskes
