Postdoc position in Protein NMR Spectroscopy
A post-doctoral position for one year with the possibility of
extension for another year is available immediately at the Department
of Chemistry and Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) at
Aarhus University, Denmark in the group of Associate Professor Dr.
Frans A.A. Mulder.
Project and Tasks
Our group develops NMR spectroscopy methods for the study of proteins,
with an emphasis on the integrative analysis of their structure,
dynamics and electrostatics in relation to function. We focus on
enzymes, protein-protein interactions and studies of intrinsically
disordered proteins in relation to cellular function and disease. To
overcome the challenges that these systems pose we are looking for a
knowledgeable and creative person. It is expected that the successful
candidate will independently manage the development, implementation of
NMR experiments and data analysis, as well as collaborate with other
groups in local and international collaborations.
The Protein NMR Laboratory offers a stimulating research environment,
covering complementary research activities in the area of liquid state
NMR, oriented and MAS solid state NMR, pulse sequence development,
low-field NMR and imaging. The lab is currently equipped with three
highly flexible instruments for liquid and solid-state applications
operating at 700 MHz, 500 MHz, and 400 MHz. In 2013 a new
state-of-the-art 950 MHz spectrometer will be installed, which will be
the highest field NMR magnet in Scandinavia. The BioNMR research is
embedded within the Center for Insoluble Protein Structures (inSPIN;
http://www.inspin.dk<http://www.inspin.dk/>), the Department of
Chemistry (http://chem.au.dk<http://chem.au.dk/>) and the
Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO;
http://inano.au.dk<http://inano.au.dk/>). These laboratories provide
abundant complementary and state-of-the-art techniques in structural
and molecular biology, nanoscience and technology.
Aarhus University further provides a strong international research and
training environment with excellent professional and private
conditions. Foreign employees can get help and information from the AU
International Center (http://www.au.dk/en/internationalcentre/) and
Work in Denmark (https://workindenmark.dk/).
Qualifications and Conditions of Employment
? The candidate must have a PhD in Chemistry, Physics or in closely
related fields, with demonstrated experience in NMR spectroscopy.
? The candidate must understand advanced NMR theory and experiments
and be able to apply advanced NMR techniques.
? The candidate should be able to work independently and participate
creatively in refining project directions.
? The candidate must have good oral and written communication skills.
Applicants should provide two letters of reference to

- Dear Colleagues,
I have just acquired an interleaved 3D HNCO experiment on an Agilent (Varian)
600 MHz instrument.
I would be much obliged if anyone of you would give a script to separate the
reference and H-bond 3D experiments.
Thanks in advance.
