Post-doctoral position/Scientist (m/f/d) Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

Updated: 5 months ago

The Leibniz-Institut für Analytische Wissenschaften - ISAS - e. V. is a research institute dedicated to the development and improvement of analytical methods and tools for health research and related fields. ISAS is a member of the Leibniz Association and is publicly funded by the Federal Republic of Germany and its federal states. 

The aim of the project is to develop new methods for biological research that are not based on animal models ("non-animal testing"). Bio-printed 3D cell cultures are created that are NMR-compatible and will enable to study transport processes in such tissue-like models in vitro.

In the field of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy in Dortmund we invite applications for a
