Assistant Professor in solid-state NMR spectroscopy (Tenure Track)

Research / Academic



As a tenure-track Assistant Professor, you will further strengthen research in the field of solid-state NMR spectroscopy with an emphasis on soft matter research. We will encourage you to look for opportunities to add new and complementary aspects to the current activities of the Magnetic Resonance Research Center of the Institute of Molecules and Materials (IMM).

Currently, the three main research directions are:

(1) Development of high-resolution, high-sensitivity solid-state NMR methodology

(2) Applications in materials science (energy materials, catalysts, polymers)

(3) Development of hyperpolarised NMR methodology in the liquid state



We encourage you to enthusiastically adopt a leading role in modern and inspiring chemistry education. These courses are part of the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes of the Educational Institute for Molecular Sciences, which tie in with the research conducted at the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM).
