School of Basic and Medical Biosciences
King’s College London


This is to give notice that the position of NMR Facility Manager in the Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics within the School of Basic and Medical Biosciences at King’s College London will become available from August 2024.

The NMR Facility manager will manage and operate the biomolecular NMR core facility within the Centre for Biomolecular Spectroscopy funded by The Wellcome Trust and the British Heart Foundation https://www.kcl.ac.uk/research/facilities/centre-for-biomolecular-spectroscopy

The successful applicant will be working in a dynamic and exciting research environment and will be actively involved in research collaborations across the Medical and Health Schools at King’s. Primary responsibilities include spectrometer operation, data analysis and interpretation, training, scheduling and supervision of users and routine maintenance of the NMR instrumentation.

The Centre supports a large and vibrant research community at King’s from structural biology to drug discovery and metabolomics. The NMR Facility provides a centre for scientists from 18 departments spread over 4 Faculties, including biologists, chemists and clinicians. It has and will continue to promote exchange of ideas and catalyse unique and innovative interdisciplinary approaches for tackling fundamental biomedical questions and meeting new therapeutic challenges in the fields of cardiovascular disease, neurological disorders, diseases of pregnancy, viral infections, allergic diseases and cancer.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. and post-doctoral experience in biochemistry, biophysics, structural biology or a related discipline, extensive experience with the day-to-day operation of high field NMR spectrometers and the application of NMR to problems in structural biology. Familiarity with NMR software development and/or spectrometer hardware and electronics would be a distinctive advantage.

The post is permanent and available from August 2024. The successful candidate will be a member of the Randall Centre based on the Guy’s Campus.
