A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Malcolm Levitt in Southampton, UK. The project is funded by the European Research Council and is for developing and applying hyperpolarized singlet NMR and MRI. The long lifetime of nuclear singlet states create obvious opportunities in combination with nuclear hyperpolarization. The lab is already well-equipped with NMR spectrometers: we are also acquiring a new solution NMR instrument, a DNP polarizer and microimaging hardware, under this project. We are particularly interested in working with a postdoc who is excited about the new experimental possibilities of this frontier technology and who has practical experience of one or more of the following topics: DNP, EPR/ESR, microwave technology, cryogenics, and MRI. The position may involve helping with the design and construction of novel hardware, so some experience of this is essential.
The position is available for an initial period of 2 years.
The position is open for applications at jobs.soton.ac.uk<http://jobs.soton.ac.uk/> under the code 107812EB, see 107812EB Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance – Recruitment at the University of Southampton<https://jobs.soton.ac.uk/Vacancy.aspx?id=2076&forced=1>
The application deadline is 30 April 2012.
