From SharedEPR: New EPR job openings

If you haven’t heard of SharedEPR, check it out here: https://sharedepr.org/

Dear SharedEPR community,

There are a series of current job openings related to EPR spectroscopy. See below. Please forward to potentially interested people.

Facility Manager for the Centre for Pulse EPR Spectroscopy (PEPR) at Imperial College London

https://www.imperial.ac.uk/jobs/description/NAT00757/facility-manager-centre-pulse-epr-spectroscopy-pepr

Closing date: 20 October 2020

Informal enquiries to Dr Maxie Roessler welcome (e-mail m.roessler@imperial.ac.uk)

PhD position (PGR studentship) within the MSCA-ITN-ETN NeuroTrans

Call for application to a PhD position in the field of EPR. Details on the position can be found on https://www.neurotrans.org/projects/project-12-resolving-coarse-grained-dynamic-distance-constraints-of-the-transport-cycle-of-nss-transporters-using-epr-spectroscopy/

Contact: Dr Thomas Stockner, thomas.stockner@meduniwien.ac.at

Closing date: 10 October 2020

Postdoctoral appointee working on transient CW and Pulsed EPR in the Center for Nanoscale Materials and Nanoscience and Technology Division at Argonne National Laboratory

Position is available starting November 2020.

The project aims at investigating the factors influencing spin information and transfer in novel two dimensional structures with well-defined sizes and shapes within supramolecular structures for enhanced emission applications. In these structures, rare earth ions will be caged in well controlled environments consisting of two dimensional networks containing organic linkers whose electronic properties can be tuned by an external stimuli. This electronic tuning will allow the emission of rare earth cations to be turned on or turned off, thereby effectively controlling the optical properties of the supramolecular structure as a whole. This selective adjustment should allow for the potential applications of these structures using rare earth salt mixtures, crude materials of much lower added value than purified rare earth metals. The EPR studies will be complemented with spatially resolved ODMR and synchrotron X-ray STM to understand molecular level of excitations. Depending on the strengths and interests of the successful applicant, the individually designed subproject may be expanded to quantum sensing in nanoscale systems or upconversion nanoparticles. 

We welcome highly motivated candidates with a PhD degree in chemistry or physics. Successful applicants should have a solid background in physical chemistry (spectroscopy), good writing skills and must be able to work independently as part of a team in an interdisciplinary environment. Previous experience in magnetic resonance spectroscopy is required.

For details regarding the application process, salary and possible starting dates please contact Dr. Tijana Rajh (rajh@anl.gov).

Best wishes

[ssNMR] Post-doc position in the Nieuwkoop Lab

The Nieuwkoop lab seeks a post-doctoral researcher to help start a project on the structural biology of the PTEN protein. We use fast spinning solid-state NMR to study protein-lipid interactions. In this project, we seek to understand the functional role of PIP binding by the C2 domain of PTEN. The PTEN C2 domain will be expressed with isotopic labeling to for backbone and side-chain NMR assignments as nanocrystals and bound to its PIP ligand in liposomes. This project will depend on novel ssNMR experiments, optimized sample preparation, and specialized NMR equipment to assess structural and dynamical changes in the bound and unbound protein.
