Postdoctoral Fellow (f/m/d)
- Physicist or Physical Chemist in Magnetic Resonance -

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoc who is interest in the field of spin physics, hyperpolarization and low field NMR. Recently, we have discovered long-lived hyperpolarized 15N spin species (T1 > 5 minutes) which we are planning to investigate as potential metabolic imaging agents at low magnetic fields below 100 mT. In particular constructing hard-ware for 15N imaging and developing imaging sequences at these fields will be the main tasks.

The candidate should have a strong background in physics or physical chemistry or related disciplines and experience in nuclear magnetic resonance and spin physics.

Postdoc candidates hold a PhD degree in physics or physical chemistry or related disciplines. The initial appointment for Postdocs is two years with possibilities for extension.

What you will be doing

  • Investigating the spin physics of 15N-enriched compounds at low fields
  • Performing low field experiments in home-built equipment
  • Constructing hardware for 15N imaging below 100 mT field.

What we offer

  • High-impact emerging field of research
  • State of the art equipment and infrastructure
  • Interesting and varied work in an interdisciplinary environment
  • A wide range of offers to help you balance work and family life: on-campus kindergarten places including
    vacation care, parent-child offices, etc.
  • Further training opportunities and language courses
  • Spacious cafeteria with a wide range of meals plus an espresso bar
  • Health management: free fitness and yoga room, sports groups, course offerings for a "moving break"
  • Initiatives for sustainability and a green environment with a new biotope

Payment and benefits are based on the German public service pay scale (TVöD Bund) guidelines.
