Nanyang Technological University

Senior Research Fellow

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Institute of Structural Biology (NISB) currently has an opening for a PhD-level NMR Research Scientist to be employed as Senior Research Fellow and to act as manager of a new Solid-state NMR Centre. This unique position offers the opportunity to collaborate on a variety of cutting-edge projects in structural biology and materials science. The NMR Research Scientist will be responsible for overseeing NMR spectroscopic activities in the Centre including training of graduate students and post-docs., and be responsible for implementing and optimizing new pulse programs.

The NMR centre is equipped with a brand new Bruker 600 wide bore and a Bruker 800 MHz spectrometer with cryoprobe suitable for NMR micro-imaging, solution and solid state NMR of proteins. Other 400, 600 and 700 MHz spectrometers with cryoprobes are also available at the School of Biological Sciences, NTU.

The NMR Scientist position provides a PhD-level scientist the opportunity to work in a stimulating academic environment, to continue their scientific development and work on exciting research projects in several laboratories and Schools.
