Developing fast magic-angle spinning (MAS) NMR methods for applications to both organic and bio-molecules in the solid state
In this project that is supported by Bruker, you will develop MAS NMR methods that make use of state-of-the-art fast MAS technology. The project will combine experimental solid-state NMR in the University of Warwick Magnetic Resonance Laboratory (a suite of solid-state NMR spectrometers up to 700 MHz, also hosting the UK 850 MHz Solid-State NMR Facility, with a 1 GHz system to be delivered in 2020) with simulation, e.g., using the SIMPSON software that implements the density operator quantum-mechanics description of the NMR experiment. The focus will be on developing solid-state NMR methods using model compounds, of relevance for application to moderately sized pharmaceutical molecules and biological systems.
This project is part of the Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Science. The start date is Monday 23rd September 2019
The project is fully funded for 4 years with all fees paid and a yearly stipend of £14777 for 2019/20 .
The position is part of the new Warwick Analytical Science CDT and will also offer training in 60 CATS of MSc modules during the first year of the PhD (leading to a certificate).
