The “NMR Signal Enhancement Group” (Dr. Stefan Glöggler) at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry invites applications for an

MR Physicist/Engineer

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student or postdoc who will develop hardware for the efficient hyperpolarization of metabolites and applications for metabolic imaging. The initial appointment for postdocs is 2 years with possibilities for extension. He/she should have a strong background in NMR physics, engineering or related disciplines preferably in connection with hyperpolarization. Knowledge of NMR methods and relevant software (e.g. Mathematica, Comsol) is also desirable.

We offer an international and highly productive and innovative working atmosphere and provide state-of-the-art NMR equipment and collaboration possibilities especially with the “Institute for Biostructural Imaging of Neurodegeneration“ (BIN).

The position is to be filled by February 2017. The successful applicant will receive a salary according to the funding guidelines for young researchers of the Max Planck Society.

The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.

Interested candidates should send their applications (application deadline: 30.09.2016) via e-mail with reference to “MR Physicist/Engineer”, including a statement of research interests and two letters of recommendation send under separate cover, to
