Dear All,

The Advanced NMR center of Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) is searching for talented young scientists and/or engineers with the background in NMR/MRI methodology and applications. The advanced NMR center is associated with the China's National Facility of Translational Medicine which employs and develops cutting-edge technologies in biomedical research. The NMR center includes one 400 MHz MAS-DNP for solids with 3.2 and 1.3 DNP probes, one 800 MHz wide bore with micro-imaging and diffusion systems, one 600 MHz solid-state NMR with 1.3, 3.2 and 4 mm probes and a series of liquid-state NMR instruments from 300 to 700 MHz. The center also has access to a 9.4 T animal scanner and 1.5 and 3 T human MRI scanners on site of SJTU. Besides NMR/MRI, the national facility also houses top-end instrumentation such as cryo-EM, mass spec, 3D printing, and medical robotics. The facility is an interdisciplinary research hub which includes basic research in chemistry and biochemistry as well as applications in biomedicine and preclinical tests. The activities are enabled by latest nanotechnologies, electrical engineering, information technologies, etc, which are all accessible door-to-door in the same building.

The applicant should have a strong background in NMR or MRI (all subcategories in MR are welcome). The projects and duties will be customized towards your background and interest as long as they are aligned with the general goal of the NMR center.
