A postdoctoral position is available for a period of two years starting from January 2008 (or as close as possible to this date).

The project will apply diffusion-edited NMR spectroscopy to the study of non covalent interactions between low molecular weight biochemicals and macromolecules in blood plasma or serum.

The successful candidate will join a well-equipped NMR spectroscopy/metabolomics group based in the School of Pharmacy at the University of Nottingham.

The 2006 edition of 'The Times Good University Guide' ranked the School of Pharmacy as the top pharmacy school in the UK and we hold a ranking of 'International Excellence' for our research.

In addition, the project will be run in collaboration with Professor Rasmus Bro, University of Copenhagen.

Applicants should hold, or expect to obtain (within the next few months) a PhD in NMR spectroscopy. The applicant should be conversant in modern NMR methods and have the ability to optimize and/or develop new pulse sequences. Some knowledge of multivariate data analysis methods would be desirable, but not essential.

Please apply either by:
1) e-mail to Clare Daykin (clare.daykin@nottingham.ac.uk) with a current CV and covering letter
2) Posting CV and covering letter to: Dr. Clare Daykin, School of Pharmacy Boots Science Building, University of Nottingham University Park, Nottingham UK, NG7 2RD
