Generating and Transporting Hyperpolarization for preclinical MRI
A Postdoctoral position is available working in the group of Prof. Sami Jannin HMRLab on a project funded by the European Research Council, at CRMN in the city of Lyon, France.
We are looking for highly motivated candidate with strong scientific background, independence, and who enjoy teamwork. For postdoctoral positions, you must hold a PhD in Chemistry, Physics or related disciplines. Skills in will be appreciated in Nuclear magnetic resonance and possibly Dynamic nuclear polarization.
The candidate will in particular:
o **Perform low temperature DNP experiments **with a functional state-of-the-art Bruker prototype polarizer, using novel hyperpolarizing materials that are synthetized in our team and that extend the lifetime of hyperpolarized MRI tracers to days (see <a href=“http://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms13975" rel="noreferrer noopener">doi:10.1038/ncomms13975, <a href=“http://www.pnas.org/content/111/41/14693.abstract" rel="noreferrer noopener">doi:10.1073/pnas.1407730111, poster <a href=“https://adf53efd-90c5-403a-b21a-24d0b727fdac.filesusr.com/ugd/5087b6_c01e5f87828740d59449810b35991be1.pdf" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">here, and videos <a href=“https://twitter.com/Sami_HMRlab/status/1118867052356362243" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">here )o Transport hyperpolarized molecules to the <a href=“https://www6.inrae.fr/agroresonance/Nos-ressources/Nos-locaux/Un-batiment-dedie" rel="noreferrer noopener">preclinical MRI facility agro-resonance with a newly developed hyperpolarization transport system, and participate together with the specialized MRI team of Jean-Marie Bonny to pre-clinical imaging experiments.
