Postdoctoral positions – NMER / ERC StG, Warsaw University, Poland

January 12th, 2023 by

Three postdoctoral positions are open in the European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant project “Chirality-sensitive Nuclear Magnetoelectric Resonance” (NMER) at the University of Warsaw, Poland.

The NMER project aims to lift the blindness of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to molecular chirality by observation of chirality-sensitive magnetoelectric effects, which enables the identification of enantiomers directly without requiring chemical shift reagents or chiral solvents. Direct chiral NMR effects are very small and have not been previously detected; thus, the project will utilize several unique new strategies, such as hyperpolarization techniques and novel instrumentation, to dramatically enhance the chirality-sensitive NMR signals and then implement them in the several major areas of NMR spectroscopy.

Application deadline: January 26th, 2023

Post-doc: Flow NMR to monitor photosynthesis regulation

January 9th, 2023 by

Dear colleagues,

We recently published a postdoc position on flow NMR developments and application on the photosynthesis for microalgae (refer to here for the full description) where a biostructural and metabolic analysis will be combined to decipher photosynthesis mechanisms.

We would be very recognizing and glad if you could diffuse our offer in your team and lab. In advance many thanks, and a warm happy new year,
With best regards
