[NMR] Postdoctoral position at NYU (NMR, MRI, magnetometry, spin physics, battery research)

Postdoctoral position at New York University (NMR, MRI, magnetometry, spin physics, battery research) Department of Chemistry

Applications are solicited for an individual to be appointed as an
postdoctoral associate under the supervision of Alexej Jerschow. The research will include one or both of these research areas:

• In-situ and operando NMR/MRI and magnetometry of batteries and
electrochemical devices.
• Study of nuclear spin singlet state life times and singlet relaxation
mechanisms, the development of efficient singlet/triplet conversion pulse sequences and methodology, as well as para-hydrogen induced polarization (PHIP).

Successful applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree in a related field. The ideal candidate will have strong experience in two or more of these areas:

•       NMR or MRI
•       Spin dynamics simulations
•       Machine learning and image processing
•       Hardware/microcontroller/data acquisition set up / programming /operation
•       Magnetometry
•       Electrochemistry
•       Molecular dynamics or ab initio simulations

There is no requirement to master all areas, but depth in two or more areas will enable a good integration with several projects.

There is also an opportunity to be involved in other ongoing projects in the laboratory.

The lab is located in newly renovated facilities of the Molecular Nanoscience Center at NYU’s Washington Square Campus in the heart of Manhattan.

The terms of employment which would be a year, with a possibility of renewal, include a competitive salary and other benefits. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and candidates will be considered until the position is filled.

To be considered, all applicants must submit a cover letter summarizing research experience and specifying the interests in this position; a curriculum vitae (including a full list of publications); a statement of research interests; and two letters of reference.

Applications should be submitted to:
