The focus of our unit is the research in modern nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). We are developing and applying modern experimental as well as computational magnetic resonance methods to create new tools to characterize physical properties of molecules, materials and nanosystems and to reliably interpret the acquired data with high accuracy using quantum-chemical calculations.
An interdisciplinary doctoral student position on the topic "Novel NMR methods for sustainable cement" is open in collaboration between Fibre and Particle Engineering Research Unit and the NMR Research Unit at the University of Oulu, Finland.
Application deadline: April 30th 2018
