Postoc in Solid State NMR and X-RAY Crystallography - Kansas State University, USA
From NMR Wiki
A postdoctoral position is available immediately for studies of ferroelastic and ferroelectric domain switching, crystal growth, crystallography, phase transitions, and molecular recognition phenomena in organic inclusion compounds and related materials. The position requires a strong background in SOLID-STATE NMR spectroscopy and X-RAY CRYSTALLOGRAPHY.
The researcher will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of a 300 MHz NMR instrument dedicated to solid-state experiments such as MAS, 2H NMR, and single crystal NMR and will use his or her NMR data in conjunction with crystallographic data to study structure and dynamics of disordered molecular solids.
The ideal applicant would have experience with a variety of solid-state NMR experiments and chemical crystallography. Experience and interest in organic synthesis of labeled compounds and experience with troubleshooting and maintenance of NMR equipment would also be very helpful. The successful applicant will be exposed to a wide variety of techniques in the area of solid-state chemistry. He or she will help train graduate and undergraduate students in these techniques and must also value working with faculty and students from diverse cultural backgrounds.
Duration of the position would be for one year with the possibility of extension to two years. Salary will be commensurate with experience and background.
