PhD position: DNP/MAS NMR using photo-excited triplet states
The research group of Dr. Guinevere Mathies in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Konstanz is looking for an enthusiastic PhD student to join our international team. He or she will investigate if and how the high polarization generated in the photo-excited triplet states of organic molecules can be used for Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP). This project is part of a larger effort in our group to develop new forms of DNP to enhance the sensitivity of high-resolution magic-angle spinning (MAS) NMR.
The candidate we look for has a MSc degree in Physics, Chemistry or a related field and research experience in EPR spectroscopy is very welcome. He or she is highly motivated, driven by curiosity, and can work independently as well as in a team.
The PhD position is planned for 3 years with the possibility of extension and a salary according to the German TVL E13 67% scale. It is available immediately and applications will be considered until the position is filled. To apply, send a cover letter and a CV to Dr. Guinevere Mathies at firstname.lastname@example.org.
