We are deeply proud of our academic community. Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is a diverse and dynamic learning environment, defined by a shared sense of respect for all its people. Our mission is to be bold, to do the right things and to change lives, and our academics are key to realising those goals. Their work continues to reinforce our credentials as an award-winning university, and a research centre of excellence.

Our continued success — underpinned by the number of prestigious national awards we’ve won — has hinged on two commitments: forging excellent partnerships around the world and harnessing the talents of all our people. We secured a ‘Gold’ rating in the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework; received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our pioneering research; and in 2018, we were the first UK university to sign the Social Mobility Pledge, further demonstrating our commitment to ensuring ‘success for all’. NTU is a university at the peak of its powers, but we know we can still go even further. That’s why we’re now looking for new, passionate, ambitious people to join our community.

About the role

This role will involve direct responsibility for the group’s NMR metabolomics workstream. The Wilson group covers a range of areas spanning human, animal and environmental medicine and combining interdisciplinary approaches to deliver clinically-actionable solutions to real-world problems. We currently have two postdoctoral staff and eleven PhD students working within the group. Our new colleague will be responsible for managing our bespoke 60MHz benchtop NMR facilities, as well as working with the institutional and external high field facilities to further process samples. You will cover the spectrum of NMR experimental work from designing and implementing pulse sequences, sample preparation and data acquisition through to spectral assignment and data analysis. You will work with the senior Research Fellow/Group Manager to cascade train new colleagues and postgraduates to ensure a high level of NMR-based skills in the group. Additionally, you will form an integral part of grant and manuscript preparation as part of the senior team within the group.
