Research Fellow - KTP Associate in Solid State NMR
£27,183 - £35,469 pa
You will work between the NMR group of the Physics Department at the University of Warwick and the Johnson Matthey Technology Centre, Sonning Common funded under the KTP Scheme. You will be supervised at Warwick by Prof. Mark E. Smith and John V. Hanna, and at Sonning Common by Dr T.I. Hyde and Dr P. Ash. The aim of the project is to establish a solid state NMR facility at Sonning Common that provides in-house characterisation for Johnson Matthey and complements the facilities and relationship with Warwick's Magnetic Resonance Centre. This is an excellent opportunity to play a pivotal role in developing a new facility and to develop a wide ranging research programme that has direct impact on industry.
Johnson Matthey is a speciality chemicals company focused on its core skills in catalysis, precious metals, fine chemicals and process technology, developing and selling products that enhance the quality of life for millions of people around the world. Warwick's Solid State NMR group (http://go.warwick.ac.uk/nmr/) 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. The group moved into new purpose-built accommodation in April 2008. For informal enquiries please contact Mark Smith (M.E.Smith.firstname.lastname@example.org) or John V.
