Open Position at Bridge12: Scientist – Magnetic Resonance #DNPNMR

Bridge12 has an open position for a Scientist – Magnetic Resonance.

Open Position: Scientist – Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

Bridge12 is a small business focused on the development of cutting-edge microwave and terahertz (THz) instrumentation for use in scientific research such as Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) and Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) spectroscopy. The company has a worldwide customer base and conducts groundbreaking research on applications of microwave/THz radiation in novel fields, often in collaboration with leading academic institutes.

Position Overview

As a scientist at Bridge12, you will work on multidisciplinary projects covering large aspects of magnetic resonance, instrumentation design, development of prototypes and conduct research. The position requires creativity in a wide range of areas of magnetic resonance spectroscopy including NMR and EPR spectroscopy, imaging, and instrument development. We are looking for a highly motivated, highly organized individual who enjoys an innovative, interdisciplinary environment and the challenges that come with the manufacturing of high-tech, scientific instrumentation. You will work out of the Bridge12 facilities in Framingham, MA with only occasional travel (conferences, tradeshows etc.).
