About HMR Lab
Our research interests are centered around the development of new hyperpolarization approaches for preparing nuclear spins in highly polarized ‘or aligned’ states, typically yielding > 10’000 fold sensitivity enhancements in magnetic resonance (both NMR and MRI).
To put it simple we magnetize molecules and materials to augment their sensitivity in magnetic resonance.
We are spanning across disciplines, from Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry, to Medicine. We conceive new methods and instrumentation, and ultimately provide powerful tools to solve challenges at the forefront of molecular and chemical sciences today.

Postdoc in methods development
A Postdoctoral position is available working on a project funded by the European Research Council.
The candidate will work on two projects:
Hyperpolarization transport (ERC StG HP4all) - low temperature DNP experiments with a functional state-of-the-art polarizer, using novel hyperpolarizing materials that are synthetized in our team and that extend the lifetime of hyperpolarized MRI tracers to days and transport of hyperpolarized samples to a preclinical MRI facility.
Replenishable hyperpolarization by rapid-cycle DNP (ERC CoG HypFlow). Participation in the development and applications of a new rapid-cycle DNP setup in which samples are repeatedly frozen, polarized, melted and circulated to a flow NMR system.
