Open PhD position on NMR of complex fluid and solid phase states in nanoporous solids.

Applied Magnetic Resonance division of the Felix Bloch Institute for Solid State Physics, Leipzig University has one open PhD position for 3 years (with an option to extend for one more year). The project focuses on explorations of complex fluid and solid phase states created in the pore spaces of nanoporous solids. Even though the occurrence of a large spectrum of such states is well appreciated, understanding of their properties is still lacking. In the project, diffusion and nuclear magnetic relaxation of confined phases will be explored experimentally and will be correlated with the predictions of recent theoretical models. For the experiments, a spectrum of NMR spectrometers ranging from 100 to 750 MHz will be available. The suitable candidates should have university degree in physics and have basic knowledge on NMR.
