Post-doc position in solid-state NMR of the human skin at Lund University

A postdoc position in solid-state and DNP NMR is now open in the groups of Emma Sparr https://www.physchem.lu.se/people/seniors/sparr/ and Daniel Topgaard https://www.physchem.lu.se/people/seniors/topgaard/. The project is focused on lipid and protein dynamics and interactions in the stratum corneum, the outer layer of the human skin.
