[NMR] Postdoc/PhD position available on high-frequency microwave engineering for NV-diamond NMR

Dear colleagues

a postdoc/PhD/staff position is available in the Bucher lab at the Technical University of Munich in the frame of the EU HORIZON 2020 ERC programme.

Topic: High-frequency microwave engineering for NV-diamond NMR

Description of the work: In recent years, defects in diamonds have been shown to act as atomic-sized sensors for nanoscale nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) experiments. Here, this innovative quantum technology will be further developed for real-world applications in chemistry, material and life sciences. The project will be highly interdisciplinary at the unique interface between quantum technology and chemistry. The research position is situated in the Chemistry Department (physical chemistry) at the Technischen Universität München and is funded by the European Union. More information can be found on www.bucherlab.org.

Current microscale NV-NMR experiments typically work at low magnetic fields (< 0.1T) which limits their application due to a lack of chemical specificity. In this Postdoc position, a new NV-NMR setup with an increased spectral resolution at higher magnetic fields (0.5-1.5 T) will be developed. Thus, microwave pulses at high power and frequencies (10-40 GHz) will be generated, and a suitable resonator will be designed. The application of this new technique will be in biology and material sciences.

Further information: www.bucherlab.org

https://qt.eu/engage/jobs/high-frequency-microwave-engineering-for-quantum-sensing-applications/

Specific Requirements: Prospective candidates should have a Masters/PhD degree in electrical engineering, physics, spectroscopy, or related field, interested in technology development and have extensive hands-on experience in high-frequency microwave engineering. While not required, experience in one or more of the following topics are advantageous: NV-quantum sensing / NMR / EPR spectroscopy

ERC-funded postdoctoral position in MAS-DNP of organic solids #DNPNMR

Hello everyone,

there is a postdoc position opening at the Institut of Radical Chemistry in Marseille (France).

For a complete description of the project and to apply, please follow this link to the offer on the job portal of the CNRS:

https://bit.ly/3huX4Ym

For more details, contact Giulia Mollica at giulia.mollica@univ-amu.fr

Thank you

Missions

The solid-state NMR group of the University of Aix Marseille is looking for motivated candidates for a postdoctoral research position in chemical sciences funded by the European Research Council (ERC). The project aims to develop and apply an emerging NMR hyperpolarization technique, MAS-DNP (nuclear dynamic polarization under magic-angle spinning). This approach is used to increase the sensitivity of solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (SSNMR), allowing the extraction of unique structural information on solid materials at the atomic scale without requiring isotopic enrichment.

Activities

The aim of the project is to develop a new experimental approach to study the structure and the formation of organic solids. These materials, essentially composed of small organic molecules, can assume different crystallize forms, a phenomenon known as polymorphism, whose physical origins are not yet fully understood.

The postdoctoral researcher recruited as part of this project will:

  • develop new NMR experiments for the structural study of organic powders by hyperpolarized NMR (MAS DNP)
  • develop new tools to increase the temporal resolution of the analysis of crystallizing systems by DNP NMR.

Skills

Applicants must have a PhD in physical or physical-chemistry sciences and a previous experience in NMR.

Work Context

Host Institution – Research carried out under this project will be conducted at the Institut de Chimie Radicalaire (ICR, UMR7273). Located in the south of France in Marseille, the ICR is internationally recognized for its double expertise in i) the development of new DNP approaches for the characterization of organic solids and ii) the synthesis of radical species currently used as polarizing agents the most effective for the analysis of solids via MAS DNP. The laboratory has free access to high performance computing facilities through the Mesocentre of Aix-Marseille Université. With the Spectropole analytical facility on-site, ICR has access to a wide range of instruments for material analysis, and several NMR spectrometers for liquids and solids whose fields vary from 300 to 600 MHz. In particular, the laboratory is equipped with a new 400 MHz MAS-DNP spectrometer as well as with a 400 MHz wide bore NMR spectrometer with numerous MAS probes up to 60 kHz.

The postdoctoral position is funded by the CNRS initially for one year, renewable up to 2.5 years depending on the results. Salary depends on experience (2200 € – 3100 € net / month). Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.

The CNRS is labeled HR Excellence for Research (HRS4R) and promotes the transparency of the recruitment process and equal opportunities.

[NMR] Solid-State NMR Postdoc Position at Ames Laboratory #DNPNMR

Dear Colleagues,

We are seeking a postdoctoral associate with a background in solid-state NMR spectroscopy. The postdoc will be responsible for conducting solid-state NMR investigations of heterogeneous catalysts, by conventional as well as dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) enhanced solid-state NMR spectroscopy. A significant portion of the work will involve solid-state NMR methods development for instance through the development of novel data analysis tools, pulse sequence development, and the advancement and application of emerging technologies including ultra-fast (100 kHz+) magic-angle-spinning, dynamic nuclear polarization, and ultrahigh magnetic fields. The main focus of the work will be geared towards gaining a dynamic understanding of the structures of heterogeneous catalyst surfaces through multidimensional NMR spectroscopy.

Ames Laboratory is equipped with 9.4 and 14.1 T solid-state NMR spectrometers with MAS probes for rotor diameters ranging from 5 to 0.7-mm. Aside from these instruments, the lab is also equipped with a 9.4 T Bruker MAS-DNP NMR spectrometer with both 3.2 and 1.3-mm MAS-DNP probes. Access to computational resources and synthetic resources, if needed, will also be available.

Interested people are encouraged to apply for the position. More details can be found at this link:

[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.

[NMR] Post-doctoral position in CEA/Saclay

CEA, CNRS, Paris-Saclay University, France

A Postdoctoral research position is available from April 2020 to develop liquid-state NMR methods and instrumentation for sensitive real-time detection of synthesis intermediates. The efficient, rapid and quantitative detection of reaction intermediates by NMR requires that the detection zone be as close as possible to the synthesis reactor. This implies new developments in instrumentation and NMR methods.

The postdoctoral position is funded through an ANR project grant for a period of 12 months. Experience in two of the following areas is desirable: NMR methodology, NMR instrumentation, chemical engineering, 3D-printing. A benchtop NMR spectrometer (43 MHz), two 500 MHz narrow-bore spectrometers and a 300 MHz superwide-bore spectrometer/imager are available in the laboratory for this project. Also, the candidate will have access to the French high-field NMR facility (IR-RMN-THC).

CEA is a major French player in research, development and innovation. The Paris-Saclay cluster, situated 25 km in the south-west of Paris, is a concentration of large groups and innovative SMEs associated with a world-class university center. Being one of the 8 most important innovation centers in the world, Paris-Saclay already accounts for 15% of French public and private research.

Candidates who are interested in participating to this project common to the company CortecNet and the CEA (LSDRM) are encouraged to apply by sending their CV and letters of recommendation to Dr. Patrick Berthault, NIMBE, UMR CEA/CNRS 3685, CEA Saclay, PC #9, F-91191 Gif sur Yvette, France patrick.berthault@cea.fr.
