[NMR] Postdoctoral position at BMRZ / Goethe University Frankfurt

From the Ampere Magnetic Resonance List

Dear colleagues,

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in Solid-state DNP Spectroscopy in the Emmy Noether research group led by Dr. Björn Corzilius at the Goethe University Frankfurt/Main, Germany (E13 TV-G-U, 100 %). The postdoctoral researcher will be placed at the seam between the BMRZ and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry. The research group focuses on method development and basic research of DNP towards biomolecular applications.

To qualify, the applicant must hold a doctoral degree in chemistry, physics, biochemistry, or biophysics. The applicant must be ambitious and demonstrate a strong motivation and an appropriate background to help develop the proposed research area. Several years of research experience in magnetic resonance methods, especially in DNP, NMR, or EPR are required and should be supported by publications in high-ranking scientific journals and conference contributions. Good language skills in English are a crucial requirement.

The applicant will lead small research groups and work in a cutting-edge field situated at the seam between EPR and NMR and will therefore be able to build or extend an integral knowledge and expertise in the field of magnetic resonance. Experiments will be performed using state-of-the-art instrumentation at the BMRZ or external collaboration sites.

The successful candidate must have very good collaborative skills, have integrity and be flexible and capable of working in a structured and efficient way. The successful candidates should also be able to contribute to the innovative climate within the group.

Please send your relevant and comprehensive application material to Dr. Björn Corzilius:

The contract is fixed term, based on the regulations of the "Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz" and the "Hessische Hochschulgesetz". Initial appointment is for 1 year, with possible extension upon mutual agreement. The University is an equal opportunity employer and strongly encourages women to apply. In case of equal qualification, preference will be given to applicants with disabilities.
