[NMR] Postdoc Positions in DNP at ETH

Dear Colleagues,

there are two postdoctoral positions open at ETH Zurich in the field of DNP in the groups of Sebastian Kozerke and Matthias Ernst.

The first positions concerns Magnetic Resonance (MR) pulse sequence design, image reconstruction and data analysis approaches for Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) based hyperpolarized imaging of cardiac perfusion and metabolism on experimental MR equipment: It will be based at the Institut for Biomedical Engineering (Sebastian Kozerke,

The second position concerns the development of Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) based hyperpolarized methods for in-vitro and in-vivo imaging purposes. Project foci are on DNP hardware development and optimization as well as on novel materials for hyperpolarized imaging including nanoparticles for in-vivo imaging applications:
It will be based at the Laboratory for Physical Chemistry (Matthias Ernst,

Both positions are part of a long-standing collaboration between the two groups and close collaboration with students and postdocs in both groups is expected. In the past we have developed three DNP polarizers at 3.4 and 7 T field which can be used with NMR systems and a small animal imaging systems. The group of Sebastian Kozerke also has a SpinLab polarizer for clinical imaging systems available.

More information can be found online under the above mentioned links. For detailed questions about the two positions, please contact Sebastian Kozerke ( or Matthias Ernst ( Applications for the two positions can be submitted online using the above mentioned links.

Best regards,
Matthias Ernst
