PERMANENT STAFF SCIENTIST POSITION IN
SOLID-STATE NMR AT THE GOETHE UNIVERSITY FRANKFURT
The Centre for Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance and
the Institute for Biophysical Chemistry at the Goethe
University Frankfurt seek to make a high profile appointment
for the position of a permanent staff scientist (BAT Ib)
in solid-state NMR (Glaubitz Lab).
The laboratory is well equipped with Bruker 850, 600 and 400
MHz wide-bore spectrometers. The setup for solid state DNP
is in progress. The group is specialized in biological
solid-state NMR with a focus on membrane proteins
(receptors, enzymes and transporters).
The lab is embedded in a number of research and infrastructure
initiatives (Cluster of Excellence, SFBs, NMR Large
Scale Facility) and offers an excellent working environment.
The successful applicant will be responsible for the
day-to-day running of this solid-state NMR facility.
The job responsibilities involve in particular the management
and maintenance of the available spectrometer infrastructure,
active participation in ongoing research projects, implementation
and application of new pulse sequences, support of internal
and external users, active participation in the development
and subsequent maintenance of a solid-state DNP spectrometer.
The successful applicant should have a keen interest in biological
solid state NMR and must have a relevant university
degree (chemistry, physics, biochemistry or related) and a PhD
and/or some years of postdoc experiences in modern
solid-state NMR. He/she should have a very good knowledge of
modern, multidimensional MAS NMR experiments and be able to
develop and write new pulse sequences.
A good knowledge of spectrometer hardware and MAS NMR
probeheads is essential, experiences with Bruker
spectrometers will be helpful.
