The High-field NMR Center of Lyon (CNRS / ENS Lyon / UCB Lyon - UMR 5082) is recruiting a full-time European Project Manager (EPM) to ensure the implementation and monitoring of a European infrastructure project, PANACEA, funded by the INFRAIA-02-2020 Starting Communities program (Horizon 2020).
Located on the site of the Cité Lyonnaise de l'Environnement et de l'Analyse, (scientific campus of la Doua), the CRMN is a European large-scale facility that brings together more than 40 scientists and technical staff of various expertise in chemistry, physics and biology.The Center hosts a worldwide unique high-field Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) platform, open to the national and international scientific community.
The PANACEA project - A Pan-European Solid-State NMR Infrastructure for Chemistry-Enabling Access - coordinated by the CRMN under the umbrella of the CNRS, aims at providing access to NMR instruments and top-class experiments to European chemists, from both academia and industry. The project is based on a consortium of 12 partners, public and private, established in various European countries as well as in the United States. Networking activities will be developed to harmonise the access procedures, facilitate the use of NMR to non-expert users and expand the fields of application of this spectroscopy in chemistry (pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, cosmetics, food, materials, fuels, polymers and clean energies).
