Postdoctoral teaching fellowship in NMR methodology for the study of inorganic materials

A postdoctoral teaching fellowship in NMR methodology is available in the ENSCL (Lille, France). It will start in September 2011. This position may be turned into a permanent position of assistant professor in Lille after a training period.

You will join the team of Glasses and NMR methodology in Lille NMR center. You will contribute to the development of original NMR methods for the study of glasses and catalysts. In particular you will be expected to develop techniques for the observation of low-gamma nuclei. You will have access to all the NMR facilities (five superconducting magnets, ranging from 900 MHz to 100 MHz for proton Larmor frequency). Lille is a pleasant city situated in the heart of Europe (30 min from Brussels, 1 h from Paris, 1h from London by train). The university of Lille combines research groups with strong expertise in NMR and EPR spectroscopy as well as catalysis and material science.

You will teach (i) solid-state NMR to graduate students in chemistry as well as (ii) physics (magnetism, electricity) to first-year undergraduate students in chemistry.

You will have a PhD, or equivalent, in Physics or Chemistry. A working knowledge of French is required.

The closing date for application is Monday 11 July 2011.

Applications and informal queries about the lab and research projects should be directed by email to Lionel Montagne ( ).
