Postdoc position SSNMR Leiden

The Solid-state NMR group of the Leiden Institute of Chemistry
invites applications for a

Postdoc position (up to 3 years).

Founded by the Research Fund for Coal and Steel of the
European Commission, within a research network coordinated
by the Fraunhofer-Institut Oberhausen, we aim to study
the absorptive properties of coal and link to a molecular
structure model.

Additional to a MAS NMR analysis of coal samples, optical
pumping of noble gasses in order to explore surface properties
is intended.

The solid-state NMR group in Leiden provides a comprehensive
infrastructure including various fields (MAS between 2.3 to 17.6 Tesla),
MRI, facilities for illumination in the magnet (Xe lamps, solid-state
lasers, OPO) and for low temperature experiments.

Interested candidates should have a strong background in
solid-state NMR, knowledge on optical methods is desirable,
interest on material science and the ability to work independently
within the network. The postdoc would be encouraged to build up
his/her own line of research. The position will be initially
offered for one year with the intension to extend to about three
years. The project can start immediately.
