Post-doctoral positions are available to advance materials, methods, and instrumentation for improved electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy measurements of nanomaterials and biological systems. Our laboratory contains two continuous wave/pulsed spectrometer systems equipped with components that improve resolution, signal to noise, and decrease sampling time (Band et al. Journal of Magnetic Resonance, 2018). Recent work includes design and fabrication of a metamaterial microresonator for EPR spectroscopy of sub-nanoliter volume samples (Abhyankar et al. Science Advances 2020). Future work is anticipated in the areas of microresonator design, engineering biology/biomanufacturing, dioxygen imaging in 3D cell culture, and structural biology methods development. Knowledge of microwave engineering, previous experience in instrumentation development, or experience in biological magnetic resonance are desirable. We offer a supportive environment that couples multidisciplinary scientific interactions with advanced measurement and nanofabrication capabilities.
