PhD Positions in Synthesis and Pulsed Dipolar Spectroscopy (St Andrews)

Two fully funded PhD positions have become available at the EaStCHEM School of

Chemistry in St Andrews, Scotland.


We are seeking highly motivated individuals interested in an interdisciplinary PhD project in the laboratory of Dr Bela Bode affiliated with the School of Chemistry, the Biomedical Sciences Research Complex and the St Andrews Centre of Magnetic Resonance.

The projects aim at extending the method of pulsed dipolar EPR spectroscopy which allows measurement of nanometre distances between paramagnetic spin probes. The main targets are the development of new ways of introducing spin probes and improving the quantitative analysis of experimental data. The projects involve the preparation of organic and inorganic model compounds and their analysis with the ultimate aim of transferring the insights gained to state of the art structural research in the nano- and biosciences through local, national and international collaborations. 

St Andrews hosts unique EPR instrumentation including a newly developed high-field high-power spectrometer (Dr Graham Smith, Physics) and two commercial pulse spectrometers. Pulse EPR research in St Andrews is embedded in a strong network formed between applications in structural biology (Chemistry and Biology), method development (Chemistry and Physics) and hardware development (Physics).

Candidates should hold a scientific degree in chemistry or physics and are expected to provide the contact details of two scientific referees. Previous experience in synthesis, magnetic resonance or numerical simulations is desirable.

Interested candidates can send informal enquiries to B E Bode (beb2(A)

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
