Postdoctoral Position: NMR microimaging UCLA

Postdoctoral Position: NMR microimaging in chemistry.
UCLA Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

A new postdoctoral appointment is available to study the statistical
dynamics of chemically reacting flow systems. Recent advances in NMR
microscopy and hyperpolarization techniques permit a highly detailed
picture of chemically reacting flow, and the goal of this project is
to develop novel methodologies for the quantitative assessment of in
situ reactions and kinetics. The project will involve setting up model
reactions, building necessary hardware and comparing experimental
results with newly developed theoretical models of micro
hydrodynamics and finite-size microcanonical dynamics in random
heterogeneous media. The ideal candidate will have some experience
in chemical synthesis, NMR spectroscopy and NMR hardware
design, strong experimental skills, and be proficient in both written
and spoken English. The candidate may be required to travel on
occasion to work with collaborators, and will make use of state of the
art facilities at the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) for
material characterization and development. Send resume and
