There is a postdoc position available in Kong Ooi Tan’s team at ENS Paris starting in spring 2021. Initial contract is for one year, and renewable at the end of each contract year. The main goal of the project is to develop rf and microwave instrumentation for Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) techniques at high magnetic fields, i.e., ≥ 9.4 T/ 400 MHz/ 263 GHz. The candidate needs to build a DNP NMR probe with optimized rf & microwave delivery from the source to the sample at a cryogenic condition. The array of instruments that has to be built includes microwave waveguides, resonant cavity, and rf resonance circuitry. Hence, candidates with experience in assembling rf and microwave components is highly desirable. Besides, we will build a low-cost EPR circuitry in the same probe to allow the characterization of the DNP polarizing agents using EPR spectroscopy. Our lab houses an 800 MHz/ 527 GHz MAS-DNP spectrometer, a 600 MHz, a 400 MHz, and two dissolution-DNP polarizers (a Bruker prototype at 6.7 T/ 188 GHz and a home-built cryogen-free system at 9.4 T/ 263 GHz).
