Postdoctoral Position in DNP Development

Postdoctoral Position for developing new spectroscopic methods in DNP NMR 

A postdoctoral position is available immediately at the U.S. National High Magnetic Field Lab (NHMFL) in Tallahassee, FL, for developing new DNP techniques to enable liquid state NMR spectroscopy with a focus on high resolution NMR studies at high fields. This project builds on recent developments in Gyrotron sources and shuttling DNP systems to produce highly polarized small molecules for NMR characterizations. 

Interested candidates should have a strong background in one or more of the following areas: NMR sample shuttling and solution NMR spectroscopy, development and application of new NMR hardware and methods, NMR in super-critical fluids, dynamic nuclear polarization, millimeter-wave and high-frequency EPR hardware development. 

This project is an NSF MRI-funded partnership between the NMR and EMR groups at the NHMFL to develop a new platform for DNP-enhanced NMR spectroscopy to enable solution NMR characterization of sensitivity-limited samples. This endeavor leverages collaborative efforts between the groups of Steve Hill and Bill Brey at Florida State University, Joanna R. Long at the University of Florida and Lucio Frydman at the Weizmann Institute and Florida State University and is part of a NHMFL initiative to develop a user program in DNP, which includes projects to offer dissolution DNP at the University of Florida and MAS DNP and Overhauser DNP at Florida State University. The position is available immediately, and interested candidates should send their CV's, including letters from three references, to Prof. Steve Hill (
