Research Associate in Spectroscopy in Material Chemistry and Battery Research
University of Cambridge
United Kingdom

Fixed-term: The funds for these posts are available for 2 years in the first instance.

Up to three post-doctoral research associate positions are available for NMR spectroscopists with experience in materials chemistry to work in a series of battery projects within the group led by Prof. Clare P. Grey.

Candidates with expertise in DNP methods or imaging are particularly encouraged to apply. One role may involve some supervision and training of students/post-docs to use a newly installed DNP spectrometer, and some basic maintenance. The imaging role also involves NMR studies of liquids, solids and semi-solids and thus candidates with liquid state NMR spectroscopy will also be considered.

Applicants must have (or be about to obtain) a PhD in inorganic/materials chemistry or other related areas. A strong expertise in NMR spectroscopy applied to solids, liquids, and/or semi-solids as well as DNP NMR is essential. Hands-on experience on maintaining and basic trouble shooting of NMR machines, probes, and accessories is essential. Previous experience in either working in materials chemistry, battery research, or related fields is essential. A strong track record in NMR spectroscopy and materials characterisation is desirable. Strong proven track-record of publication in relevant fields is essential. Demonstrated ability to work in teams is desirable.
