postdoctoral position in Orleans

Postdoctoral position in CEMHTI, CNRS Orleans, France. “PFG NMR in molten inorganic salts at high temperature”.

A postdoctoral position is immediately available in our laboratory. We are looking for a highly motivated Ph.D. researcher with a good expertise in NMR spectroscopy and strong experimental skills. He will have to participate to the development of PFG NMR measurements in a wide range of molten inorganic salts including fluorides, oxifluorides and oxides at high temperature. He will take benefit of the long experience of the CEMHTI laboratory in the development of NMR experiments at high temperature using laser heating.

The CEMHTI laboratory is mainly involved in experimental study of solid and liquid materials from room temperature to very high temperature (3000°C). Thanks to specific experimental developments we are able to investigate in situ by NMR the structure and the dynamics of inorganic melts such as molten fluorides, chlorides or oxides. The facilities available in our laboratory include NMR wide bore spectrometers at standard fields (300 and 400Mhz) and very high field (750Mhz), all adapted for high temperature experiments.

CV, letter of motivation as well as the contact details of at least 2 references should be directed to Dr C.Bessada :
