The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Delaware
seeks an NMR Spectroscopist for its departmental NMR Facility. The rapidly
growing NMR facility is located in a newly built 4,650 ft2 NMR Magnet Hall, and
consists of 6 spectrometers operating at frequencies from 400 to 850 MHz.
These instruments serve more than 30 research groups at the University of
Delaware and beyond, and are used for modern NMR experiments on a wide variety
of systems, including biomacromolecules, inorganic materials, polymers, and
small molecules, both in solution and the solid state. The successful
candidate will report to the NMR Facility Director, and will be responsible for
operating and maintaining the instrumentation, for implementing new NMR
experiments, for training and supervising student and postdoc users, and for
assisting in the preparation of proposals for new equipment. The candidate
will be expected to maintain a broad knowledge of state-of-the-art NMR
technology and equipment.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in chemistry or a related area with four years'
experience in solid-state and solution NMR spectroscopy and its applications to
biological systems and small molecules. Candidates must have demonstrated
expertise in solid-state and solution NMR spectroscopy, including development
and implementation of new NMR experiments, and in particular multidimensional
experiments for structural analysis of biological systems. Candidates must
have knowledge of NMR hardware and software for data collection and processing
in modern solution and solid-state NMR spectrometers, as well as extensive
experience with computers. Candidates must have excellent communication and
organizational skills, the ability to positively interact with a diverse group
of NMR users, and a strong motivation to learn new NMR techniques. More
information is available at the departmental web site
(http://sites.udel.edu/nmr). Applications and three letters of recommendation
should be electronically submitted to Ms. Susan Cheadle (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In addition, applicants should go to http://www.udel.edu/udjobs/ and attach a
letter of application and curriculum vitae (including telephone number and
e-mail address) as one document. Review of applications will begin on Jan. 30,
2012, and will continue until the position is filled. All application
materials shall be shared with departmental faculty.
Employment offers will be conditioned upon successful completion of a criminal
