Research Fellow in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Technology
University of Nottingham, UK
School of Physics & Astronomy
Applications are invited for the above post based in the Sir Peter
Mansfield Magnetic Resonance Centre which is part of the School of
Physics and Astronomy. The successful candidate will lead an ambitious
hardware development project that focuses on the the design and
implementation of a novel spectrometer for dynamic nuclear polarisation (DNP) enhanced NMR spectroscopy. The project involves extensive industrial collaboration and is funded by the Novel Technology Initiative in Cross-disciplinary Sciences of the EPSRC. The project covers the whole field of DNP research, including the testing of novel radicals, theoretical spin dynamics calculations and the design and construction of novel hardware.
Candidates should have a PhD in physics, physical chemistry or a related
discipline and preferably have experience in one or several of the
following fields: Microwave technology, Cryotechnology, Magnetic
Resonance hardware technology, Laser Optics. Additional expertise in NMR
theory or practical experience with dynamic nuclear polarisation would
be beneficial but not essential. Candidates should have good
communication skills and enjoy working with a variety of different
people across discipline boundaries.
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for a period of three
years. Salary will be £27,319 - £31,671 per annum, depending on skills and experience.
