Scientist, Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (Entry Level)

Bridge12 develops state-of-the-art 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.


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 manufacturing high-tech, scientific instrumentation. You will work out of the Bridge12 facilities in Natick MA with only occasional travel for conferences.


  • Instrumentation development for Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR, EPR, DNP, MRI). This includes electrical and mechanical design and fabrication of NMR, EPR and DNP equipment.
  • Design of passive microwave/THz components such as transmission lines, quasi-optical mirrors, bends, and polarizers.
  • Design and conduct research to support product development.
  • Data analysis, generation of reports and presentations.

Required Skills & Experience

  • In-depth understanding of the principles of magnetic resonance spectroscopy with a strong emphasis on NMR and EPR spectroscopy
  • Experience in performing NMR experiments, preferably on an Agilent/Varian spectrometer running VnmrJ
  • Experience in performing electromagnetic simulations for RF and microwave/THz circuits using finite element analysis tools (e.g. Ansys HFSS and Maxwell)
  • In-depth knowledge of programming languages such as Python
  • Experience with 3D CAD tools for mechanical design such as Solidworks
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills and good teamwork ethics
  • Printed Circuit Board design and prototyping (advantage)
  • Experience in designing cryogenic instrumentation (advantage)


This is an entry level position for scientist with a Ph.D. degree in chemistry, chemical engineering, physical chemistry, physics or equivalent or master’s degree and at least 3 years of professional experience.


  • 401(k) (with matching)
  • Health care benefits including vision and dental
