HiSCORE - Highly Informative Drug Screening by Overcoming NMR Restrictions


Department of Chemistry

Prof Geoffrey Bodenhausen Applications accepted all year round Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
Paris France Analytical Chemistry Chemical Physics Electrical Engineering Electronic Engineering Pharmaceutical Chemistry Physical Chemistry

About the Project

Our recently funded ERC Synergy Grant seeks to advance hyperpolarisation, miniaturisation, parallelisation and spin dynamics, and combine these research themes for highly informative drug discovery by nuclear magnetic resonance. We believe that, eventually, magnetic resonance can provide an in- depth biophysical characterisation of drug candidates in a much shorter time than today, and become a very effective platform for rapid drug discovery.

This interdisciplinary project is run by four laboratories (Geoffrey Bodenhausen, Arno Kentgens, Jan Korvink, and Benno Meier) in three institutions (ENS Paris, Radboud University Nijmegen, and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology). Our partners Alvar Gossert (ETH Zürich) and Claudio Dalvit (Trento) complete our team with strong expertise in magnetic resonance (MR) based drug discovery.

Due to the word limits, please refer to the attachement here for full information.

Funding Notes

This is a fully funded PhD position (for all nationalities and disclipines). The candidate has to choose to one out of four supervisors, but expected to work with the other three supervisors.
