Postdoctoral Position in Development and Application of Advanced High-Field EPR, USA

AAUW International Fellowships in USA for Women

Postdoctoral Position in Development and Application: The High-Field EPR Group at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab) in Tallahassee, FL is seeking two postdoctoral researchers to work on the development and application of advanced high-field EPR methods. The positions are open until filled.

Designation: Postdoctoral Researcher

Research Area:

Development and application of pulsed high-field EPR methods at W-band (94 GHz) and potentially higher frequencies. Applications of interest include quantum spin science, materials research, coordination chemistry, and structural biology.

Location: National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab), Tallahassee, FL


Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D. in Physics, Materials Science, Chemistry, or a related discipline.

Expertise in EPR spectroscopy is an advantage, as well as experience in the application of other spectroscopic or magnetic characterization methods to molecular materials.

Familiarity with molecular materials, quantum spin science, spectroscopic studies of coordination compounds, and applications of EPR in structural biology is also desirable.

Job Description:

The successful applicant will have access to a state-of-the-art high-power W-band spectrometer developed at the University of St. Andrews. This instrument offers true nanosecond time resolution and wideband excitation, facilitating complex pulse programming using an arbitrary waveform generator. The successful applicant will also be working on hardware development. The end-goal centers on applications ranging from quantum spin science and materials research to coordination chemistry and structural biology.

How to Apply:

To apply, please send a CV, a cover letter describing your experience and research interests, and the contact information for three references to Stephen Hill (

Last Date for Apply: Until the positions are filled
