Do I need to be an expert in NMR to join your group?
No: You will be trained in all aspects of the instrumentation. The most important factor is to have an open mind, be willing to work hard, and enjoy a challenge. As the research, methods, and instrumentation we employ are so diverse it’s impossible for everyone to be an expert in everything. Everyone in the research group is here to support one another.
Will I be employable after working in your group?
Yes: You will be highly employable. You will have a diverse range of skills in NMR which are at the cutting edge of modern research, and represent the future in Analytical Chemistry. As well, the chemical applications the skills you will learn are desperately needed in many large companies, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry and medical research.
Will I get to travel to conferences?
Of course: As long as funding is available and you have new research to present. All students are highly encouraged to attend scientific conferences. The conference that is most connected to our research is ENC, often the whole group presents research annually in this conference.
