HyperStore: Singlet States and Supercritical Fluids for Storage and Transport of Hyperpolarised Spin Order Magnetic Resonance

Location: Highfield Campus

Closing Date:  Monday 31 October 2016

Reference: 782416EB

PhD Supervisor: Dr. Giuseppe Pileio                  

co-Supervisor: Prof. Malcolm H. Levitt

Application Deadline: 31-10-2016

Interviews will be held in November 2016

PhD Description:  Applications are invited for a PhD Studentship in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) in the research group of Dr Giuseppe Pileio and with the co-supervision of Prof Malcolm H Levitt. The project concerns the development of NMR methodology and hardware that combines supercritical fluids with long-lived states NMR and dissolution-DNP to prolong the storage of hyperpolarised spin order and allow it to be transported remotely from the production site. The successful candidate will be trained in advanced liquid-state NMR techniques such as singlet NMR and dissolution-DNP. He/She will be involved in the development of new NMR methodology as well as in the design and construction of NMR hardware, electronic/digital controllers, parts to interface supercritical fluid chromatography, dissolution-DNP and NMR hardware.

The project is funded for 3 years and welcomes applicants from the UK and EU who have or expect to obtain at least an upper second class degree in Chemistry or Physics or allied subjects/relevant disciplines. Funding will cover fees and a stipend at current research council rates of £ 14,296 per annum.

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

Applications for a PhD in Chemistry should be submitted online at https://studentrecords.soton.ac.uk/BNNRPROD/bzsksrch.P_Login?pos=4990&majr;=4990&term;=201617

General enquiries should be made to Giuseppe Pileio at g.pileio@soton.ac.uk.  Any queries on the application process should be made to pgafnes@soton.ac.uk

Applications will be considered in the order that they are received, and the position will be considered filled when a suitable candidate has been identified.
