A PhD studentship supported by the Marie Curie Actions-C

The MIT Department of Chemistry has an opening for a Director of our Chemistry Instrumentation Facility (DCIF).  

We welcome applications from all qualified candidates.  Any questions on the positing may be directed to Michele Harris, Human Resources Coordinator at or 617-253-1804.

A post-doctoral fellow position is immediately available in the research group of Professor Aaron Rossini at Iowa State University. The goal of the project is to develop new solid-state NMR methods for the characterization of pure and formulated active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). We will accomplish this by utilizing the state of the art NMR technologies of fast MAS and dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) to enhance the sensitivity of solid-state NMR experiments on APIs. The projects will be executed in collaboration with Dr. Joe Lubach and Dr. Karthik Nagapudi (Genentech).

We are looking for post-doctoral candidates to join an exciting project on the determination of mechanisms of allostery mediated by disulfide bonds in proteins with NMR spectroscopy and molecular dynamics simulations. The role of the post-doc associate will be to work with experimental NMR as well as molecular dynamics simulations and theoretical modeling.

This project is a collaboration between the NMR group at Ecole normale superieure and the group of theoretical biochemistry at the Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique, both within PSL Research University.

A position for a postdoctoral scientist is available immediately in the Gavathiotis Laboratory at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the area of NMR-based structural biology and drug discovery. The laboratory's focuses on structural and chemical biology approaches  and operates at the interface of chemistry, biology and translational science with the goal to discover novel biological mechanisms that are causing or contributing to cancer and other diseases and develop novel therapeutics.

Post-Doctoral Position in Molecular Dynamics Based Design of Enzyme Inhibitors, Lyon, France (

The University of Maryland School of Medicine has expanded its molecular imaging and interventional research capabilities by establishing the Center for Metabolic Imaging and Therapeutics. The center houses a GE SpinLabTM dynamic nuclear polarizer suitable for preclinical and clinical applications, a GE 3T 750w MR scanner, and an MR Solutions MRS 3017 Preclinical Benchtop MR scanner. The GE MR scanner is also integrated with two Insightec 1024-element high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) systems for image-guided interventions.

Postdoctoral Associate position available immediately to s

Senior Researcher Position in NMR-Based

PhD and Postdoctoral positions are available working in the group of Sami Jannin at the Analytical Sciences Institute in the city of Lyon, France (

A post-doctoral position is available at the University of Washington for a candidate with an interest and experience in applications of NMR to important biological problems. The successful candidate will focus on solution NMR studies of proteins, short and long non coding RNAs and their complexes. The UW has state-of-the-art NMR facilities housing 800, 700, 600 and 500 MHz spectrometers for both solution and solid state applications and cryo-probes as well as access to protein and RNA production and state-of-the-art biophysical instrumentation.

Our group aims to understand the structure and function of proteins, protein complexes and other biomolecules at the atomic level via electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy. We invite applications for a PhD position to participate in one of the projects listed below:

-       Studying the role of tyrosyl radicals in catalysis of essential enzymes
-       Testing the hypothesis that enzyme adaptation is driven by protein dynamics
-       Understanding the role of π-stacked tyrosine dyad in proton-coupled electron transfer reactions
