Postdoc in MRI of Rechargeable Batteries (NYU Chemistry)

Note: This opportunity is with our colleagues at the Department of Chemistry at NYU.

The Department of Chemistry at NYU is seeking a person with expertise in RF engineering, susceptibility imaging, or electrical property mapping, to complete a team working on in-situ and in-operando NMR/MRI of batteries and electrochemical devices in the laboratory of Alexej Jerschow at New York University (NYU). Expertise in deep learning would be beneficial as well. This position could be ideal for someone wishing to leverage his or her MRI expertise outside of the medical field.

This work is at the forefront of developing new methods for finding flaws in batteries and predicting battery life, which is critical for advancing electric vehicle and portable electronics technologies.

Exemplary articles illustrating this work have been published in Nature Communications and PNAS.

There is also an opportunity to be involved in other ongoing projects in the laboratory related to nuclear spin singlet state lifetimes. The lab is located in the newly renovated facilities of the Molecular Nanoscience Center at NYU’s Washington Square campus in the heart of Manhattan. Further opportunities include the involvement in entrepreneurial activities around this technology.

Applicants should have a PhD in physics, chemistry, engineering, or a related field, and should ideally have strong experience with RF engineering and NMR/MRI hardware and imaging methodology.

Remuneration is competitive and commensurate with experience and will be based on NYU guidelines. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.

To be considered, the application has to be submitted via the following link: 

Preliminary inquiries can be sent to
 Alexej Jerschow.
