Responsibilities will include setting up and running experiments, with guidance from senior
scientists, using state-of-the-art NMR probes on a JEOL ECA 500 WB NMR spectrometer and
communicating their effectiveness. The work will include both routine testing and demonstration of
new applications and capabilities. Current development efforts at Doty Scientific Inc (DSI) are

application for a potential permanent CNRS research associate position in liquid-state NMR methods
A postdoc position for “DNP-enhanced solid-state NMR” will be available from September 2013 at
the Helmholtz center Jülich/ Heinrich Heine-Universität Düsseldorf.
One of the most demanding
challenges of biomolecular NMR spectroscopy is the inherently low sensitivity. Signal enhancement by
DNP is therefore a promising alternative to gain insights into systems which otherwise could not be
investigated. We will exploit the technique to obtain structural information on complex systems
(protein aggregates, and membrane proteins in lipid bilayers) which otherwise would be inaccessible
to structural investigations. Further, the possibilities of this technique for selective enhancement
will be exploited.
The candidate should hold a PhD in Physics or Chemistry or a related field.
Basic knowledge and experience in solid-state NMR or EPR spectroscopy as well as a strong interest
in physics and structural biology is a prerequisite. Experience with DNP is highly desirable. The
applicant should be highly motivated, open for new approaches and techniques, and able to tackle
demanding challenges. As most of the systems involve collaborations with other research groups, good
communication skills are required.
The biomolecular NMR center of the Heinrich-Heine University
of Düsseldorf at the Helmholtz Research Center Jülich (Forschungszentrum Jülich) offers an
exciting and stimulating research environment. State-of-the art solid-state NMR spectrometers
operating at 600 and 800 MHz are already available, a 600 MHz DNP spectrometer will be installed in
September of 2013, and the installation of an 800 with DNP is scheduled for 2014.

NMRTEC is opening a position for a doctoral thesis in the field of analytical chemistry dedicated to
complex system and combinatorial chemistry.
In a part of the ITN READ European network, it is
intended to conduct an extensive study on the development of analytical methods for the analysis of
complex mixtures. This will include the study of large chemical libraries, auto-assembling systems,
complex protein ligand interactions, and the study of polymers and disordered biological systems.
Methods developed will include mostly NMR (1D, 2D, and multinuclear), diffusion measurement by NMR
(DOSY) but also other techniques such as SAXS and mass spectrometry.
This is a joined PhD project
between NMRTEC and the biomolecular NMR academic laboratory (IGBMC, Dr. Marc André Delsuc).

The University of Michigan is reopening a search for a full-time Director/Staff for our newly
established Biomolecular NMR Core Lab. The position is described in more detail in the link to the
job posting below, but we seek a research-oriented scientist to oversee two high-field instruments
(a brand new Bruker 800 MHz and an existing Varian 600 MHz) and two lower field instruments and to
collaborate with, train, and support diverse NMR users across the University of Michigan campus and
the region. This position requires productive biomolecular NMR experience and excellent

The successful candidate will assure the technical support of the three
liquid-states NMR spectrometers of the Department of Organic Chemistry. He will operate a 500 MHz
Bruker spectrometer equipped with a helium-cooled probe and supervise the "open access" to the two
additional spectrometers (300 and 400 MHz spectrometers). He will also train the users for the
"open access" and optimise the sample changer operations.
In principle this is
