Responsibilities The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) of the U.S. has an opening for a solid-state NMR Research Faculty position (level commensurate with experience). The primary responsibilities will be developing a research and collaborative user program utilizing the 36 Tesla Series-Connected-Hybrid (SCH), a 12 MWatt powered magnet supporting sub-ppm NMR at 1.5 GHz. Equipped with a custom-made Bruker NEO console, a unique field regulation system, and a suite of MAS and oriented sample solid-state NMR probes developed at the NHMFL [1, 2] the 36T SCH magnet provides the highest magnetic field available today capable for high-resolution solid-state NMR of bio-solid and material applications.

The Research Faculty will work with a team of engineers and scientists and be responsible for: (1) developing a research program in bio-solids and in material applications with quadrupolar and spin-1/2 nuclei utilizing the high-field magnets at the NHMFL; (2) supporting the 36T SCH user program, that includes NMR system management, project initiation, planning, and execution with users.

The NHMFL’s NMR/MRI user program operates a state-of-the-art user facility at the Magnet Lab conducting research at the frontiers of physics, chemistry, biology, and material sciences with unique magnet technologies. It has an outstanding infrastructure with an array of NMR spectrometers including 900MHz, 830MHz, three 800MHz, 600MHz MASDNP, four 600MHz, and other lower field instruments. The candidate will have support from a team of engineers and scientists, for the 36T SCH, in particular, and opportunities to collaborate with national and international users, to apply for grants, to publish and to pursue individual research objectives, as well as to participate in national and international organizations and conferences.

Qualifications

Ph.D. in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biophysics, Physics, or Materials Sciences with research experiences utilizing solid-state NMR.

  • Excellent experimental NMR skills including spectrometer operations, data processing, pulse-sequence development and implementation, as well as knowledgeable in NMR instrumentation and probe hardware.
  • Excellent writing and communication skills.
  • Strong track record in publications.
  • Experience working in a multidisciplinary research environment.
  • Possess collegiality and the ability to contribute as a team player.
  • Motivated researcher and scientist with the vision to become a world-class researcher.
