Post-doctoral position at CEA-Saclay in NMR hardware development

We are looking for post-doctoral candidates, to join an exciting project on the development of a new approach to increase sensitivity with NMR spectroscopy. The project aims at developing magic angle coil spinning (MACS) for high-resolution micro-detection of volume-limited biomedical substances, using Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) and is funded by the French National Science Foundation (ANR). The role of the post-doc associate will be to participate in the development of new hardware on high-field and ultra-high field spectrometers. This project is pursued in close collaboration with the University Pierre and Marie Curie and the group of Prof. Christian Bonhomme.

Post-doctoral candidates should have strong experience in electrical engineering and/or magnetic resonance hardware development (e.g. radio-frequency probes, antennas), or connected areas of experimental physics and engineering.

Funding is available for at least one year, while possibilities for up to 30 months are accessible. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

Our team (http://dsakellariou.free.fr) is part of the laboratory of structure and dynamics by magnetic resonance lab (http://iramis.cea.fr/sis2m/lsdrm/), at the Department of Material Science division of CEA (http://www.cea.fr/english-portal). The group offers a unique environment where the research activity on magnetic resonance methodology and instrumentation encompasses pulse sequence development for solid-state NMR and MRI. The CEA is located 20 km from the heart of Paris, at the center of an extremely dynamic scientific cluster (http://www.epps.fr/en/a-global-cluster/).

Interested candidates should send their full CV to Dimitrios Sakellariou (Dimitrios.Sakellariou@cea.fr) and provide three references in a cover letter.
