Fully-funded PhD studentship – Hyperpolarized NMR Spectroscopy


Project Description

Hyperpolarization methods enhance nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signals by up to 5 orders of magnitude, with transformative implications for a wide range of sciences including chemistry, biology, physics and medicine. Prof Malcolm H Levitt FRS has been awarded a 5-year grant from the European Research Council to develop molecular sensors and magnetic resonance imaging agents based on hyperpolarized NMR. A fully-funded 3.5-year PhD studentship is available under this grant. This major project is highly interdisciplinary and includes quantum theory, experimental spectroscopy, physics, chemical synthesis and biochemistry. The studentship will focus on the nuclear magnetic resonance aspects of the project but will allow close interaction with the other involved areas as well. The successful applicant will have an excellent academic record, a strong background in physical chemistry, physics or mathematics, and have a keen interest in participating in highly interdisciplinary and challenging research at the scientific frontier.

Funding Notes

The studentship is funded for 3.5 years and welcomes applicants from the UK and EU who have or expect to obtain a first class degree in Chemistry, Physics or allied subjects/relevant disciplines. Funding will cover fees and a stipend at current research council rates of £ 14,777 per annum (201819 rates and due to increase in 201920).

Due to funding restrictions this position is only open to UK/EU applicants
