Postdoc @ INAC (CEA / Grenoble university)

From the Ampere list:

Position: Researcher/Engineer at CEA INAC (Institute for Nanoscience and
Location: Grenoble/France
Field of research: Ultra Low Temperature Magic Angle Spinning Dynamic Nuclear
Duration: 12 months, with possible extension upon results and funding.

We have an opening for a research/engineer position in ultra-low temperature MAS-DNP NMR at the Institute for Nanosciences and Cryogenics (CEA - Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives / University of Grenoble). 

Starting date: Beginning of 2014

The lab is equipped with a state of the art Bruker MAS-DNP system (400 MHz / 263 GHz) and is currently running a program to access MAS temperatures below 100 K using Helium spinning. Researchers/Engineers with a strong background or interest in Dynamic Nuclear Polarization / NMR methodology are welcomed to apply. PhD in solid-state NMR/ EPR or MRI is required. Experience with magnetic resonance hardware is heavily desired. A large part of the work will be conducted in close collaboration with Bruker Biospin.
