PostDoctoral – Development of Micro-MRI at high-/ultra-high fields at the Wageningen University (WU), Netherlands.

Research Theme: The focus of the group is on the implementation of micro-imaging methods in high-/ultra-high-field NMR spectrometers, with the ultimate goal to boost spatial, temporal, and chemical resolution in dynamic MRI studies of small-volume soft materials, complex fluids, and eventually also living systems.

Program details: the postdoctoral position is for one year, with a possible extension by one extra year. The Position is based at the Laboratory of Biophysics at Wageningen University (WU) and integrated within the Dutch National uNMR-NL consortium.

The position is intended to be filled by the end of 2021.

Qualifications / Requirements

The candidate should be an ambitious and enthusiastic scientist. Your profile should signal:

  1. Ph.D. degree in an NMR/MRI-related field with experience working with pulse sequence development and implementation;
  2. Research experience and familiarity with dynamic micro-imaging of materials;
  3. Strong motivation to work flexibly and creatively in a cross-disciplinary environment;
  4. A very good communications skills and ability to interact constructively with physicists, chemists, engineers, and technicians;
  5. Good command of the English language.

Benefits of Fellowship

  1. Sabbatical leave, study leave, and paid parental leave;
  2. Adjustable Working hours
  3. Excellent pension scheme.
  4. Monthly Fellowship

Program Overview

The program also includes:

  1. Training in NMR/MRI methodologies relevant to the project;
