Research Assistant / Associate

Research Assistant / Associate in NMR Spectroscopy
The University of Manchester - School of Chemistry
Closing date: 27/04/2010

Reference: EPS/10204

Applications are invited for an EPSRC Research Associate to work with Dr
Mathias Nilsson and Professor Gareth Morris on the development of
techniques in diffusion-ordered NMR spectroscopy (DOSY). The project
will combine high quality NMR measurements using world-class facilities
in the School of Chemistry, theoretical analysis, pulse sequence
development, and multivariate analysis, and offers an excellent
opportunity for a suitable candidate to build a wide NMR skill set.The
successful candidate will implement, analyse, evaluate and apply a range
of new NMR experiments in the field of matrix-assisted DOSY, working
closely with Dr. Nilsson, Prof. Morris and other members of the research
group. Equipment available includes Bruker and Varian spectrometers at
300, 400, 500 MHz field strengths.The appointee will have, or be about
to obtain, a doctoral degree in a relevant subject (e.g. Chemistry,
Physics, Engineering, Computer Science). They should possess good
written and oral communication skills, the ability to function
efficiently as part of a team, and experience in and understanding of
some or all of:

* NMR methods, especially DOSY and others involving pulsed field
* Software for NMR data processing
* NMR spectrometer hardware
* Surface chemistry/chemical interactions
* Unix and C programming
* Mathematica and Matlab programming

The position is available from 1 May 2010 for up to 36 months.


£28,983 - £35,646 p.a.
