Herzlich Willkommen / Welcome


Our research is focused on Magnetic Resonance, the only technique to solve structure and dynamics of molecules at atomic resolution in solution. We are interested both in methods development and application. The highly interdisciplinary method development comprises theory and experiment, involving equally quantum mechanical simulations and optimizations based on principles of optimal control theory, cognitive design of overall rf-pulse sequences to address specific measurement tasks, the development of special sample preparation procedures, and the design of hardware extensions. Questions regarding data interpretation are addressed by computational chemical approaches, including basic spectroscopic rules and simple alignment-tensor approaches as well as sophisticated molecular dynamics approaches with magnetic resonance-derived constraints and quantum chemical calculations. We apply NMR spectroscopy to solve interesting/important questions in chemistry, biology, material science and medicine.

More detailed information can be found in Research .

We are always looking for master and PhD students. Especially students with a strong background in either chemistry, physics, or mathematics are highly encouraged to apply. See the website angebotene Positionen for details. Specific projects for master theses can be found here.
