NMR: The Big and the Invisible

This is a perfect opportunity to learn about cutting edge magnetic resonance in biological systems in times where conferences have been cancelled around the globe.

The series takes place weekly on Thursdays and features two cutting-edge 30 minute presentations.

The series has support of the ICMRBS ( and is organized by Loren Andreas, Stefan Glöggler, Christian Griesinger, Mei Hong, Oscar Millet, Art Palmer and Markus Zweckstetter.

[NMR] International School for Young Scientists on Magnetic Resonance and Magnetic Phenomena

Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to participate in the VI International School for Young Scientists: Magnetic Resonance and Magnetic Phenomena in Chemical and Biological Physics, which will be held in Roshchino, St. Petersburg (Leningrad) region, Russia on September 5-10, 2020. 

The scope of the school is relatively broad, and its key purpose is to present interconnected topics in NMR and EPR spectroscopy in a form that underlines their fundamental similarity. Currently in several areas of research the two spectroscopies interconnect, thus building up new promising approaches, of which, probably, hyperpolarization and paramagnetic NMR are the most known and broadly used examples. We intend approaching the basic mechanisms responsible for the polarization transfer from electrons to nuclei both from NMR and EPR side. Similarities and differences in electron and nuclear relaxation and dipolar interactions will be in the focus of this school, as well.

The school includes lectures and tutorials on pulsed EPR, pulsed NMR, spin hyperpolarization and spin chemistry, including chemically induced spin polarization. A feature of the School is to approach these apparently different topics within a common theoretical framework, with the intention to obtain deeper understanding of spin dynamics of coupled electron-nuclear systems. Another aim of the School is to provide the participants with systematic knowledge of the mechanisms of the action of pulse sequences commonly used in modern EPR and NMR. We will also discuss in depth the interplay of electron and nuclear spins in modern EPR and NMR experimental methods. Furthermore, effects of electron and nuclear spins on chemical reactivity, playing a major role in spin chemistry, will be considered.

The program will include lectures and practical tutorials. The composition of the program will allow the participants to learn how to describe spin dynamics in pulse EPR and NMR experiments and, ultimately, to design novel magnetic resonance experiments. The meeting will be limited to 50 participants (not counting lecturers). The working language is English.

Registration deadline is 1 June 2020. Registration fee is 200 Euro for foreign participants and 12000 Roubles for Russian participants, which covers participation in all scientific sessions, coffee-breaks, welcome party, conference materials, cultural program, breakfast and lunch. For AMPERE members the fee is reduced.

The teachers are:

Christian Griesinger (Göttingen, Germany) 

Leonid Kulik (Novosibirsk, Russia)

Olivier Lafon (Lille, France)

P. K. Madhu (Hyderabad, India)

Kiminori Maeda (Saitama, Japan) 

Valentin Novikov (Moscow, Russia)

Maxim Yulikov (Zurich, Switzerland)

Please encourage your young colleagues to participate in this event.

Sincerely yours,

Dear NMR Community, 

On behalf of the Organizing Committee it’s my great pleasure to invite you to attend the next AMPERE NMR School 2018, an annual event organized since earlier 90th in Zakopane under auspices of the Groupment AMPERE, will be organized from June 10 th to 16 th 2018 in Zakopane, Poland ( www. zakopane .pl). 

The traditional topics given in the School: 

· solid state and soft matter NMR

· NMR diffusometry and relaxometry

· application of NMR in biology and medicine

· magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy

· NMR and quantum information

· theoretical and experimental aspects of dynamic nuclear spin polarization

· NMR methodology and techniques.

The School is addressed to PhD students of various fields of physics, chemistry, biology and medicine and is focused on theoretical and experimental aspects of NMR methods and their applications. The lectures are expected to contain a basic (tutorial) introduction and the research of your interest. 

The conference fee (450 Euro) includes full board, accommodation and the conference proceedings. We will be able to provide a financial support for the students you will recommend up to 200 Euro. More detailed information you will find on the conference website.

I am more than convinced that you will enjoy your stay in Poland, bringing home unforgettable memories – Zakopane is a beautiful town, located in the south of Poland at the foot of the Tatra mountains, about 100 km from Cracow ( www. zakopane .pl). 

With my best wishes

[NMR] Position as Research Engineer / Lab Manager for the magnetic resonance lab @ IPF Dresden

Position as Research Engineer / Lab Manager for the magnetic resonance lab @ IPF Dresden

At the Institute of Physical Chemistry and Polymer Physics, Department Polyelectrolytes and Dispersions, at the 

Leibniz-Institut für Polymerforschung is an opening for a Research Engineer / Lab Manager for the magnetic resonance laboratory. 

We are looking for a motivated, skillful person, who is willing to learn about novel technolgies and is closely collaborating with the PI’s. The research engineer will be responsible for ensuring the operation of the laboratory and the various spectrometers (high-field NMR, low-field NMR and X-band EPR), perform routine experiments and sample preparation and support in simulations. Ensuring the smooth operation of the lab includes trouble shooting and modification of experimental setups. Skills in electronics and computing are desirable.

Qualification: MSc/Diploma in Physical Technology or equivalent

Duration: initially for two years

The Leibniz-Institut für Polymerforschung Dresden e.V. (IPF) is one of the largest polymer research facilities in Germany. As an institute of the Leibniz Association, the IPF is committed to carrying out application-oriented basic research. The focus of activities at the IPF is directed toward the advancement of basic scientific knowledge for the development of functional polymer materials and polymer materials with new or improved characteristics. Leading scientists of the IPF are at the same time appointed professors at the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD). Since 2011 the TUD has been one of the excellence universities in Germany. The IPF offers a stimulating working atmosphere for outstanding interdisciplinary research in one of the most beautiful cities of Germany. 

Dresden, the capital of Saxony, possesses an extraordinarily high density of research facilities which have made Dresden a leading research site, particularly in the fields of material research, microelectronics, and biotechnology.
