A number of postdoctoral positions are available the laboratory of Wolfgang Peti. Areas of research use a variety of biophysical techniques (NMR – structure and dynamics; X-ray – structure etc.) and focus on 1) understanding how phosphatases and kinases are activated, regulated and are converted to become specific enzymes; 2) novel routes for drug design and 3) the development of NMR-based animal models for diseases.

Two post-doctoral positions are available at Dr. Maria J Macias Lab., at IRB Barcelona, starting in March 2016. The positions are supported by two Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions - COFUND grants.

About the Institute

IRB Barcelona is home to nearly 450 research, technical and support staff from 35 countries who share the common goal of contributing to the advancement of the biomedical sciences. The Institute has state-of-the-art NMR spectrometers and our group has an in-house collaboration with the ALBA synchrotron, located in Barcelona.

A PhD position working on "New and Improved Methods for Mixture Analysis by NMR" is available in the lab of Professor Gareth Morris FRS and Dr Mathias Nilsson in the School of Chemistry at the University of Manchester, UK. This project will investigate a range of ideas for extending the scope of NMR spectroscopy for both qualitative and quantitative analysis of mixtures. These will include the latest pure shift methods, such as PSYCHE [see Angew. Chem., Int. Ed. 53, 6990 (2014); J. Am Chem Soc.

The In-Vivo Magnetic Resonance research group at the Weizmann Institute of Science seeks highly motivated post-doctoral candidates for developing cutting edge MR neurospectroscopy and spectroscopic imaging methodologies.
