PhD positions available in solid-state DNP at BMRZ Frankfurt

Dear Colleagues, 

Please take notice of the below attached job posting. I\’d appreciate if you could forward it to anyone who might be interested. Additional information is available on

Applications are invited for PhD positions in solid-state DNP Spectroscopy in an Emmy Noether research group by Björn Corzilius at the Goethe University Frankfurt/Main, Germany. Salary will be according to E13 TV-G-U on 67% part-time basis. The PhD students will be placed at the seam between the BMRZ and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry. 

The research group focuses on method development and basic research of DNP towards biomolecular applications. Possible topics are: 

i) Development and investigation of site-specific DNP using molecular model systems 

ii) Investigation of endogenous paramagnetic centers of biomolecules as polarizing agents for DNP. 

Qualification requirements 

To qualify, the applicant must hold a diploma or masters degree or a qualification deemed equivalent in chemistry, physics, biochemistry, or biophysics. The applicant must be ambitious and demonstrate a strong motivation and an appropriate background to help develop the proposed research area. Experience in magnetic resonance methods is beneficial but not required. Good language skills in English are a crucial requirement. 

We offer a comprehensive training in magnetic resonance methods, including solid-state NMR, EPR, and DNP. The applicant will work in a cutting-edge field situated at the seam between EPR and NMR and will therefore gain an invaluable integral knowledge and expertise in the field of magnetic resonance. Experiments will be performed using state-of-the-art instrumentation at the BMRZ or external collaboration sites. 

The successful candidate must have very good collaborative skills, have integrity and be flexible and capable of working in a structured and efficient way. The successful candidates should also be able to contribute to the innovative climate within the group. 

Please send your relevant and comprehensive application material to Björn Corzilius:
