Postdoctoral position at University of Louisville (Jan 18/17)

The Li lab in the Department of Chemistry at University of Louisville is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our lab immediately.

Our research interests focus on applying solution NMR techniques to understand the functional roles of protein conformational dynamics in the deubiquitinase family. We’re especially interested in deubiquitinases that are involved in signaling pathways implicated in cancer and autoimmune diseases. To accomplish our research goals, we complement solution NMR spectroscopy with other biophysical and biochemical techniques, such as enzymatic assays, fluorescence spectroscopy, isothermal titration calorimetry, and X-ray crystallography. We have regular access to several NMR spectrometers on campus, ranging from 500 MHz to 800 MHz. The 600 MHz and 700 MHz spectrometers are equipped with cryoprobes. Other instruments for biophysical characterization are available in the biophysics core facility located in the medical school.

Successful candidates should possess a Ph.D. in biochemistry or a related field at the start date. Prior experience in solution or solid-state NMR spectroscopy and preparation of protein NMR samples is required. Additional experiences in NMR method development, molecular dynamics simulation and X-ray crystallography are highly desirable. More information about our research can be found in the lab website http://www.linmrlab.com

Interested candidates should send a letter of interest, CV and contract information for three references to Dr. Ying Li

NMR Postdoctoral Fellow Position at Merck, West Point, PA (Oct 27/16)

We are looking for motivated candidates for an opening for NMR research of pharmaceuticals. It’s a great opportunity for anyone who would like to pursue a career in pharmaceutical industry. The position is available immediately, and interested candidates should send their CV’s to [yongchao.su "at" merck.com] AND finish the online application. The position is funded up to 3 years. Merck provides competitive annual salary and benefit for this full-time position.


The lab has AVIII 400 MHz and 500 MHz solid-state NMR spectrometers fully equipped with probes including a 1.3 mm ultrafast spinning probe. We have frequent and convenient access to 600MHz and 700MHz solution NMR instruments. The proposed research will focus on development and application of advanced solid-state and solution NMR techniques in pharmaceutical systems including small molecule and peptide drugs and formulations.

Could you please kindly forward this post to anyone who may be interested?

PhD in magnetic resonance characterisation of energy materials, Deakin University, Geelong, Australia (Oct 11/16)

An opening exists for a PhD candidate at Deakin University’s Institute for Frontier Materials. The research will involve the use of magnetic resonance techniques (both spectroscopy and imaging) to study structure and dynamics in novel energy materials including ionic liquids and organic ionic plastic crystals. Such materials exhibit useful properties as electrolytes in lithium or sodium-based electrochemical devices, and our group aims to understand their ion transport properties in depth using a variety of methods including experimental characterisation and computational modelling. The candidate will work as part of a large collaborative team, and previous experience in magnetic resonance characterisation is highly desirable. For more information please email

CanadianNMR Postdoctoral Fellow: Micro-coil, In-vivo and Microfluidics NMR, Toronto, Canada (Oct 11/16)

Environmental NMR Centre, Department of Chemistry, University of Toronto at Scarborough, Toronto, Ontario, Canada


Project Description:

The project will, in collaboration with Bruker BioSpin Corporation and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change aim to develop automated platforms to asses and understand metabolic change as a result of environmental stress (contaminants, temperature, salts, etc.) based on digital microfluidics interfaced with NMR.

The candidate will be involved in a range of development, including

1) In collaboration with Bruker assist in the development of new micro-coils.

2) Developing NMR methods to narrow line shape in static environmental and biological samples on micro-coils.

3) In collaboration help interface the micro-coils to digital micro-fluidics devices.

4) Test and develop protocols for exposing in-vivo organisms and eggs (including fully labelled 13C and 15N organisms/eggs) to stressors and interpreting the metabolic response.

The candidate will be based in the Environmental NMR Center at the University of Toronto. The candidate will have access to a range of state of-the-art equipment at the Environmental NMR center including prototype Comprehensive Multiphase NMR probes (CMP-NMR) (J. Magn. Reson. 2012; 217:61-76), a range of unique micro coil hardware, as well as solid-state, HR-MAS, liquid-state, cryoprobes, micro-imaging, and hyphenated (2D-HPLC-SPE-NMR-MS(Q-q-TOF) NMR spectrometers.

The candidate will be expected to spend time at Bruker (U.S.) and Bruker (Switzerland) and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (Burlington, Canada). The project aims to bring together industry, academia and government and the postdoc will be expected play a central role in extending this collaboration.


Often, numerous environmental contaminants are found at low levels which in isolation are non-lethal but combined exhibit toxicities that are difficult to evaluate. In the long term they may be very hazardous to animal, plant and human populations, as their affects are often detected too late, and after physical symptoms become widespread. This project will develop in-vivo NMR that will permit “molecular fingerprinting” approaches that directly measure the changes in a living organism as a direct response to its surroundings. This research aims to develop tools that can answer the key question “Is a particular contaminated environment safe for life?” and understand how and why certain chemicals are toxic. Preliminary results demonstrate the approaches can efficiently and quantitatively asses stress in natural populations months/years before conventional reproduction tests, as-well as explaining the source of the stress and its biochemical implications. Furthermore, such “early warning systems” could potentially being used to predict and permit treatment of disease at its very early stages before symptoms are apparent.

The Candidate

The project is funded for a 3 year period. Preference will be given to candidates that can commit to at least 2 years (ideally 3 years). Candidates must be available to start Jan 1st 2017 (at the latest).

The candidate must have a strong background in NMR spectroscopy, experience with pulse sequence development, micro-coil NMR, isotopically enriched NMR, and experience with heterogeneous samples is an asset. The candidate must be open minded and willing to work with very complex in-vivo systems. The candidate should be willing to learn to design novel pulse programs that combine aspects from solution-state and solid-state NMR. Candidates will need to draw upon and integrate a range of concepts including saturation transfer, diffusion editing, cross-polarization dynamics, relaxation filters, isotope filtering with 1-3D NMR spectroscopy to access specific key molecular interactions from within complex matrices.

The candidate should have an interest in environmental chemistry and/or willingness to learn key issues in this field. Due to the very technical nature of the project the position is specifically suited to a gifted and open-minded NMR spectroscopist rather than an environmental scientist with NMR experience. In addition, the candidate, along with the center manager and directors, will be expected to act as a general NMR resource for graduate students, and collaborators in the Environmental NMR Centre, and assist with training, data acquisition, processing and interpretation on projects as required. The Environmental NMR Centre is highly collaborative and such involvement will nearly always result in the post-doctoral fellow becoming a co-author in any research in which they assisted. We expect the candidate lead at least two first author publications per year.


Candidates should send a complete C.V. including a publication list, a statement outlining their suitability and their interest in the position. Candidates should arrange to have 3 references sent directly. Applications without the appropriate references have to be considered incomplete and cannot be considered.

Applications and references should be sent to

or e-mailed as a PDF attachment to
