We are looking recruit a researcher, who will be based in the department and will interact with a number of companies to further the use of NMR Crystallography in Industry. Specifically you will assist with the deployment of CCP-NC software, to identify software requirements, and to help address those needs. The companies involved are Astra-Zeneca, Pfizer, Johnson-Matthey and the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre. Reporting to Professor Jonathan Yates, you will interact closely with other members of the CCP-NC community, particularly Professor Steven Brown (University of Warwick) and Dr Paul Hodgkinson (Durham University).

You will have a good first degree and a completed doctorate (by the start date) in the physical sciences. You will also have expertise in first-principles calculations of NMR parameters for the solid state and a good fundamental understanding of the areas of science relevant to NMR Crystallography.
