Postdoc on Ultra-High Field MRI

Wageningen University & Research (WUR) invites applications for a Postdoc position on Ultra-High Field MRI.

The focus of this position is on the implementation and validation of microimaging methods at high-/ultra-high-field NMR spectrometers (14-28 T), to boost sensitivity and spatial and chemical resolution in studies of small-volume soft biological materials. The goal of this collaborative project is to achieve cellular-level and microstructural information, not accessible at lower/intermediate magnetic fields, to ultimately aid more sensitive characterization of structure and dynamics in a range of biologically-relevant materials, from bio-regenerative tissues to soft matter and food systems.

Duration:  1 year, with the possibility of extension to 2 years depending on performance.

Salary

  • Wageningen University & Research offers a competitive gross salary of between €2.790,- and €4.402, depending on experience
  • sabbatical leave, study leave, and paid parental leave;

  • there is a strong focus on vitality and you can make use of the sports facilities available on campus for a small fee;
  • a fixed December bonus of 8.3%;
  • excellent pension scheme.

Job Requirements

The Postdoc position on Ultra-High Field MRI seeks ambitious and enthusiastic scientists. Their profile should signal:

  • a PhD degree in an NMR/MRI-related field with experience working with pulse sequence development and implementation, preferably on high-field Bruker NMR spectrometers;
