Title: Postdoctoral Research Position: Development of Pulsed High-Field EPR Methods and Applications
Location: National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Tallahassee, FL
Application Deadline: until filled
A postdoctoral position is available in the Electron Magnetic Resonance (EMR) group at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab). The position will be focused on development of pulsed high-field EPR methods and applications at W-band (94 GHz) and potentially higher frequencies. The successful candidate will have at her or his disposal a state-of-the-art high-power (1 kW peak) W-band spectrometer developed at the University of St. Andrews.1 This instrument offers true nanosecond time resolution and wideband excitation (1 GHz instantaneous bandwidth), facilitating complex pulse programming and arbitrary waveform generation, thus enabling a suite of multi-dimensional electron- (and electron-nuclear) magnetic resonance methodologies. Applicants should be comfortable working on hardware development. However, the end-goal centers on the materials and biological applications.
The EMR facility additionally boasts a wide range of other unique pulsed and continuous wave high-field EPR instruments spanning the range from 9 GHz to 2.5 THz, and magnetic fields up to 45 T. The group comprises six faculty-level researchers, an engineer who assists with instrument development, as well as a cohort of graduate students and postdocs. The group also has strong interactions with EPR and NMR experts in chemistry and biology at both Florida State University and the University of Florida in Gainesville. Further information concerning the MagLab EMR group, including links to recent publications.
