Assistant Scientist, Biomolecular NMR: Indiana University Bloomington

Dear colleagues

The Department of Chemistry at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN USA is seeking to appoint a non-tenure track Assistant Research Scientist as Manager of the METACyt Biomolecular NMR Laboratory. The METACyt laboratory is part of the campus-wide NMR facility. The laboratory houses a 600 MHz Bruker AVANCE NEO spectrometer (installed 2018) equipped with a triple-resonance cryoprobe and will install a new cryoprobe-equipped 800 MHz Bruker AVANCE NEO hybrid spectrometer with solids capabilities in summer 2024. Both instruments will be integrated into a campus helium recovery system to come on-line in early 2024.

Candidates should be highly motivated, collaborative, and interested in developing both collaborative and independent research directions. In addition to the technical expertise required of this position, the successful candidate will possess a strong background in isotopically-labeled protein expression and sample preparation and sufficient NMR hardware and software experience to implement and optimize new pulse sequences using Topspin.

A doctoral degree in chemistry, biophysics or a related field is required, with several years postdoctoral experience desired, but not absolutely required. Prior experience in maintaining NMR spectrometers is preferred but not required.  More information on this position can be found here:

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three references. All application materials should be submitted through IU’s job portal Review of applications will begin upon receipt, with a closing date of May 31, 2024.

The start date for this position is approximately September 1, 2024.
