This PhD project is focused on exploring the role and the assembly mechanism of several protein assemblies involved in infectious processes in humans and during bacterial infection. We will use solid-state NMR spectroscopy, in combination with cryo-electron microscopy and X-ray cristallography, to decipher the architecture, ultimately at atomic resolution, of challenging biomolecular assemblies. Advantageous expertise includes: interest in structural biology, experience in production and purification of proteins and/or experience in solid-state or solution NMR, or in structural biology techniques (X-ray diffraction, electron microscopy).

A fully-funded 3.5-year PhD studentship is available to work in the research group of Prof Malcolm H Levitt to develop molecular sensors and magnetic resonance imaging agents based on hyperpolarized NMR. The 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. Deadline for application: 31 August 2020; more information available at

A two-year postdoctoral position “Hierarchical Protein Dynamics” is available from 1 August 2020 (or latest on 1 Dec 2020) in the group of Prof. Dr. Frans A.A. Mulder at the Department of Chemistry and the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) at Aarhus University, Denmark. The project aims for an integrative understanding of protein dynamics in terms of the hierarchical contributions of motions taking place on different length and time scales, studying proteins in solution and solid states.

The PhD candidate will carry out research leading to a PhD degree with aim to elucidate the role of temperature as a selection pressure in protein evolution, with the rationale that evolution at high temperatures is more stringent than at low temperatures. Deadline 30 june 2020; more information available at

This PhD position will focus on measuring and quantifying the stored energy in terms of specific heat due to long term radiation (high energy electron and gamma) exposure in amorphous glass and glass-ceramics specifically developed for UK’s nuclear waste streams. These thermodynamic changes will be correlated with atomic level structural modifications probed by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Raman Spectroscopy, Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) and macroscopic mechanical properties like fracture toughness, swelling, initiation and propagation of cracks. The results obtained will provide a method to predict the long-term evolution of waste forms in extreme environments. Deadline for applications: 30 june 2020; more information available at

The candidate will work on a 3-years project funded by the Leverhulme Trust and supported by Bruker concerning the development of theory and methodology to study nuclear spins diffusing in porous media. The project’s aim is to set up new diffusion-NMR based techniques to access structural information such as tortuosity in battery electrodes and 3D-printed scaffoldings for tissue engineering.
