We are looking for an NMR Officer to provide laboratory experimental and instrumental support for the Department of Chemistry’s core NMR service. The NMR facility houses thirteen solution-state and two solid-state FT NMR instruments with proton operating frequencies ranging up to 700 MHz, which are capable of running most experiments of interest to the research chemist. The facility supports the full range of chemical sciences research across the department and university including synthetic organic and inorganic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, chemical biology, enzymology, metabolomics, catalysis and materials science. The NMR Officer will report to the NMR service Manager and will be part of a small team providing services to over 400 users in the chemical sciences by providing an expert, problem-solving resource to researchers involving NMR data collection, interpretation and reporting.
Working closely with other technical staff of the facility, the postholder will also assist with the day-to-day operation of the laboratories and instrumentation and will contribute to the training of researchers in the use of NMR spectrometers as required. The position is offered on a fixed term basis until 30th September 2022 as part of interim vacancy cover arrangements.
You will have a degree in chemistry involving significant use of high-level NMR Spectroscopy as well as knowledge of the application and interpretation of a broad range of solution-state NMR techniques for structure characterisation, especially of molecules derived from synthetic chemistry procedures. Excellent organisational and communication skills, including the ability to communicate effectively and scientifically with users of the NMR Spectroscopy Services, including postgraduates, postdoctoral researchers, academic staff and visitors is also essential.
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online and you will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application. Your supporting statement must explain how you meet each of the selection criteria for the post using examples of your skills and experience. Certificates, references and research papers should not be provided at this stage.
