Open Postdoc/PhD position in Fluidics for Hyperpolarized Metabolic Magnetic Resonance

Wednesday 21 Aug 19
by Signe Rømer Holm


Jan Henrik Ardenkjær-Larsen
Head of Section, Professor
DTU Health Tech
+45 45 25 39 18
HYPERMAG is looking for a Postdoc or PhD student. Application deadline is 15 September.

You will be responsible for 

  • The development of a robust sample transfer system between the dDNP polarizer and NMR equipment. With the purpose to reproducibly conduct metabolite identification experiments (fast transfer of bulk samples) and to conduct tracer studies in cell suspension (transfer of substrates and mixing with cells/infusion of hyperpolarized substrate). In particularly to ensure fast, automated and efficient transfer and mixing of the cells with the hyperpolarized substrate.
  • Making the transfer and mixing system compatible with a bioreactor for longitudinal studies of cell cultures.
  • As a PhD student you will further be responsible to apply the integrated transfer, mixing and bioreactor system on specific biological systems.
  • As a Postdoc you will be a key collaborator for the biological sub-group of Hypermag for the application of the integrated transfer, mixing and bioreactor system to longitudinal studies on various cell lines in other projects.

HYPERMAG occupies a DTU floor with co-located labs and offices. Our mission is to address basic scientific questions of hyperpolarization by Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) to enable new applications of Magnetic Resonance in the study of biochemical reactions in real-time in vivo and in vitro. We have high-resolution NMR systems of various types (e.g. Agilent, RS2D and Magritek), several polarizers (home-built and Hypersense), a cell lab, chemistry lab and electronics labs.
