Full-time NMR Facility Director/Manager, Biomolecular NMR Core Lab, University of Michigan (March 19/18)

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 communication skills.


Two solution NMR postdoctoral positions at University of California San Diego (Feb 2/18)


Two post-doctoral positions (start date – June/July 2018) are available in the group of Dr. Lalit Deshmukh at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at University of California San Diego (UCSD). Both positions will be available for 2 years with the possibility of extension. The lab is interested in understanding the interplay between retroviral group-specific antigen (Gag) polyproteins and host cellular factors and primarily utilizes solution NMR spectroscopy to answer challenging questions. We seek two new members to join the group to expand our current work on retroviral Gag polyproteins and their interactions with endosomal sorting complexes required for transport (ESCRT) machinery as well as their association with artificial lipid membranes such as lipid nanodiscs. We will explore the role of Gag ubiquitination in Gag-ESCRT interactions and analyze the impact of myristoylation on Gag-membrane association.

The lab is located in the Natural Sciences Building at UCSD and has dedicated access to state-of-the-art solution NMR equipment. For more details, please visit


In addition, the Department provides an excellent cross-disciplinary environment with training opportunities and modern research facilities to carry out collaborative research.

Requirements: Interested candidates must have received (or be expecting) a Ph.D. and/or M.D. within the past two years in biochemistry / biophysics / molecular or structural biology. Strong background in solution NMR, computational methods, protein expression and purification, lipid chemistry, and structural biology is highly desirable. Candidates should be highly motivated, open to new approaches and techniques, and be able to tackle demanding challenges.

To apply: Please email (as one single pdf document) a preferred start date, CV, a brief summary of research interests and accomplishments, career goals, and names and contact information of at least three references to: Dr. Lalit Deshmukh, Email: [ ldeshmukh "at" ucsd.edu ]

UC San Diego is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer with a strong institutional commitment to excellence through diversity. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to gender, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, age or protected veteran status.

Salary: Commensurate with qualification and based on UCSD Postdoc salary scale.

CanadianPostdoctoral fellowship in solid-state NMR, Université de Sherbrooke, QC (Dec 20/17)

The Université de Sherbrooke is starting a solid-state NMR facility and seeks to hire a postdoctoral fellow in view to complete the acquisition of a new spectrometer and its installation. This position could eventually be converted in a permanent NMR-manager position within 2 years. The candidate should be expected to frequently interact with researchers in materials science, chemistry, physics and
civil engineering, and will have the opportunity to participate in collaborative research projects. The candidate should be able to provide guidance on various NMR experiments, including liquid-state and solid-state experiments. A PhD, obtained after 2014, with focus in solid-state NMR is required. Knowledge of French, although not required, is an asset.
Please submit a detailed resume, cover letter and names of two/three reference contacts via email to

Postdoctoral Position in Solid-State NMR/Materials Science for Energy Storage, Hunter College of the City University of New York (Dec 12/17)

A one-year postdoctoral research position, renewable by mutual consent for two additional years subject to available funding, is offered at Hunter College of the City University of New York, beginning around January 15, 2018. The research program concerns solid and liquid state NMR of materials being evaluated for electrochemical energy storage and conversion, in particular lithium battery and fuel cell applications. Current and future work involves collaborative projects with U.S. National Labs and U.S. and international universities investigating materials for renewable energy technologies. The requirements for the position are a Ph.D. in chemistry, physics, or engineering, and significant experience with standard solid state NMR techniques (e.g. CP/MAS) or pulsed field gradient diffusion methods.

In addition to performing research, responsibilities include assisting in the training of graduate and undergraduate research students and routine magnet/spectrometer upkeep. Facilities include a Stelar Spinmaster (1T) Fast Field Cycling Relaxometer, Varian 500 Inova with solid state rack and MAS probes, a 400 SB Bruker Avance III spectrometer equipped with liquid-state NMR probe with a z-gradient coil (maximum 55 G/cm), a Varian Direct Digital Drive 300 with widebore magnet, MAS probes, gradient channel and pfg probe (1500 G/cm), a Chemagnetics CMX 300 with gradient channel and pfg probe (150 G/cm), a homebuilt high pressure NMR system, a Tecmag Apollo NMR system with 90 MHz permanent magnet for paramagnetic materials, and access to the NY Structural Biology NMR Center housed at nearby City College http://www.nysbc.org

Interested persons should send a CV and the names and e-mail addresses of two references to
