Postdoc available in MAS-DNP at CEA / Univ. Grenoble Alpes for a start at the beginning of 2022. Projects range from developing new polarizing agents for sustainable ultra-low temperature helium spinning DNP, to new methods suitable for the study of biomaterials (synthetic and natural), including 43Ca NMR experiments and 1H detection. Other topics can be envisioned depending on the candidate interest.
More information about the lab and a list of recent publications can be found here: www.nmr-dnp-grenoble.net.
Interested candidates should contact me rapidly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Grenoble is one of the major cities in Europe for research with a large international scientific community. In addition, Grenoble has a large international student population, is a very pleasant city to live in, and is known as the “Capital of the Alps” with easy access to great skiing and hiking. It’s also only 2 hours’ drive to the Mediterranean Sea, Italy, or Switzerland. Grenoble, Lyon, and Geneva airports are nearby and permit straightforward international travel.
