University-funded NMR Facility Manager position at The City University of New York

An Upcoming University-funded NMR Facility Manager position at The City University of New York

The City College of New York (CCNY) is accepting applications for a university-funded Senior Research Associate who will serve as an NMR Facility Manager at The City University of New York’s City College (CUNY’s CCNY) in New York City. The successful candidate will have primary responsibility for overseeing the operation of a 3-channel 600 MHz Bruker AVANCE NEO spectrometer equipped for solid-state NMR (1.6-mm and 3.2-mm MAS probes) and a broadband diffusion probe (5-mm, 17 T/m gradients), including applications to both natural biopolymer composites and engineered materials. In addition, the Manager will share secondary responsibility for a 300 MHz Bruker AVANCE III HD walk-up spectrometer with a broadband liquid-state NMR probe and a Quantum Technology helium recycling unit. The Manager will articulate collaboratively with faculty, postdoctoral scientists, Ph.D. research trainees, and undergraduate Honors students to facilitate cutting-edge research and promote interaction among groups that make intensive use of solid-state and biomolecular NMR. The successful candidate will assist in the maintenance and troubleshooting of NMR hardware and software, instrument scheduling, and the implementation and analysis of experiments conducted at CCNY, CUNY’s Advanced Science Research Center, and the adjoining New York Structural Biology Center (NYSBC).


Qualifications for this position include a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Physics, or related disciplines. A minimum of two (2) years of postdoctoral work experience with demonstrated research abilities is preferred. The successful candidate should have experience in one or more of the following areas: solid-state and/or biomolecular NMR applications, NMR instrumentation, and/or NMR facility management. The successful candidate should have a track record of collaborative research on biomacromolecular assemblies and/or materials science.


This position offers abundant access to a host of NMR and other facilities for structural biology, nanoscience, and related research endeavors. Full-featured Bruker NMR spectrometers operating at 600, 700, and 800 MHz are available at the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) adjoining the CCNY NMR Facility in CCNY’s Center for Discovery and Innovation (CDI). Excellent state-of-the-art 500-900 MHz Bruker NMR and 600 MHz DNP facilities, along with rich scientific interactions, are accessible at the world-class NYSBC located on our campus. CCNY hosts CUNY’s Macromolecular Assemblies and Energy Research Institutes as well as faculty-led research groups focusing on biochemistry, biophysics and biodesign (B3), nanoscience, energy, materials, and engineering applications located in CCNY’s Division of Science, Grove School of Engineering, and CUNY Medical School. CUNY’s research community includes several hundred chemists, biologists, physicists, medical researchers, and both chemical and biomedical engineers who interact within a university network of 25 colleges and professional schools. Located in the historic Hamilton Heights – Sugar Hill section of upper Manhattan, CCNY is accessible by major subway and bus lines within the metropolitan New York area.
