Post-Doctoral positions

One post-doctoral positions is currently available (fully funded) in MAS-DNP !

The projects will focus on the development of innovative strategies for high-field DNP enhanced solid-state NMR spectroscopy. They will include i) the implementation of new NMR methods tailored for high-field and fast MAS DNP, ii) the development of novel generations of polarising agents as well as new polarising matrices and iii) the application of these approaches to the investigation of challenging systems in materials science. More specifically, the project includes the development of strategies to investigate challenging catalytic surfaces, including new methods for 195Pt NMR.

The project will be developed with leading groups in hyperpolarization, materials science as well as with industrial partners.

Working environment

The High-Field NMR center of Lyon hosts two DNP systems operating at 400 MHz / 263 GHz and 800 MHz / 527 GHz. Both instruments are equipped with 3.2 and 1.3 mm DNP probes. A 0.7 mm DNP probe is also available on the 800 MHz DNP system. In addition the center hosts 5 NMR spectrometers (from 500 to 1000 MHz), all equipped with state-of-the-art solid-state NMR hardware. The NMR research groups of the High-Field NMR of Lyon are of worldwide-recognized excellence, notably in the field of solid-state NMR of proteins and materials, as well as in the field of hyperpolarisation techniques. The project will be carried out in an international environment, using a unique equipment worldwide, and in collaboration with leading groups in NMR spectroscopy, surface science and radical design.
