Duties include carrying our experimental research and promoting effective interactions with collaborators, through communication, coordination of experiments, and efficient drafting of joint manuscripts.

Experience of pulsed EPR spectroscopy is essential.

This post will be based at the Centre for Advanced Electron Spin Resonance (CAESR), in the Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory, South Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3QR and will focus on the use of pulsed EPR techniques for probing long-range electronic interactions between paramagnetic metal centres.

For information about the research group, please see http://caesr-web.chem.ox.ac.uk and http://hla.chem.ox.ac.uk.

You should either already have a PhD in Chemistry or have submitted your thesis prior to taking up the post.
