Postdoc position in Manchester UK

A postdoctoral research fellowship is available for a researcher to work with Professor Gareth Morris and Dr Mathias Nilsson on the development of techniques in high resolution diffusion-ordered NMR spectroscopy (DOSY). The project will combine high quality NMR measurements, theoretical analysis, pulse sequence development, and multivariate analysis, and offers an opportunity for a suitable candidate to build a wide NMR skill set. The School of Chemistry at Manchester has world-class instrumental facilities.
Candidates should have, or be about to obtain, a PhD in a relevant subject (e.g. Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science) and have experience in and understanding of some or all of modern NMR methods; FT NMR spectrometers; software for NMR processing; UNIX and C programming; and Mathematica and Matlab programming.

The position is available immediately and will be for up to 32 months.

Professor /Associate Professor in Solid State NMR

Professor /Associate Professor in Solid State NMR
Department of Physics
University of Warwick

A Professor/Associate Professor position is available in the NMR group of
the Physics Department at the University of Warwick. You will, in
collaboration with the existing members, provide academic leadership to
the NMR group. You should have a substantial record of achievement in
Solid State NMR and for the more senior position a strong international
reputation and evidence of the ability to obtain significant external
funding. You will also be expected to contribute fully to the department's
teaching and administrative duties.

The Solid State NMR group ( is extremely
well-equipped with 7 solid state NMR spectrometers, a very wide range of
probes, a large diverse portfolio of grants and an excellent track record
of collaboration with other research groups within Physics, the wider
University of Warwick and beyond. It will be moving into new
purpose-built accommodation in October 2007. For informal enquiries please
contact Malcolm Cooper (, Head of Physics, Mark
Smith ( or Ray Dupree (

Research Fellow in Solid-State NMR

University of St Andrews

Research Fellow in Solid-State NMR

EaStCHEM School of Chemistry

Salary: £27,857 per annum

This post is funded for a period of up to 3 years and the position is available from 1 October 2007, or as soon as possible thereafter. The Project is to work on the development and application of novel solid-state NMR techniques. This post will be in the research group of Dr Sharon Ashbrook in the School of Chemistry. The aim of the programme is the development of multinuclear correlation methods in solid-state NMR and their subsequent application to minerals, ceramics and microporous materials. The post will coincide with the delivery of two new wide-bore spectrometers (600 and 400 MHz).

You should have a PhD in NMR Spectroscopy, ideally with experience of solid-state NMR. Experience of computational methods as applied to NMR is an advantage, but not essential.
