On 8 January 2024, Chemnitz University of Technology hosts a workshop for (early career) female scientists with a focus on “My career development – individual assessment and self-reflection”. Dr Kathrin Carl will report between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on perspectives for professional steps after the doctorate or postdoctoral phase. At the event, questions such as “What do I bring with me?” and “Where am I drawn to?” are discussed. The page of the Centre for Equal Opportunities in Science and Research of the TU Chemnitz can be accessed via this link.
Prof Dr Daniel Häussinger will hold the first HYP*MOL colloquium of the TRR. On 12 January 2024, the researcher from Basel who is an expert in paramagnetic nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy on biomacromolecules in solution, will share his expertise at the Faculty of Chemistry and Mineralogy at Leipzig University. The event will start at 13:15.
A two-day workshop for our HYP*MOL early career researchers will be held at Nimbschen Monastery near Grimma at the end of February. In addition to other items on the programme, there will be special introductory lectures and talks by the project leaders that are important for the scientific career path and an introduction to the topic of hyperpolarization.
There will be a summer school on Solid-state NMR at Youth hostel Schloss Windischleuba (40 km South of Leipzig/Germany) from Sun/10 March (evening) to Sat/16 March (morning) 2024 supported by the ISMAR. The school is the third in a cycle of four schools and will be dedicated to Solid-state NMR.
Topics will be:
Basics of solid-state NMR, quantum mechanics, spin-interactions, tensors, Euler angles, static case, MAS, CP, instrumentation, decoupling, recoupling, operators, AHT, multidimensional experiments, molecular motion, polymers, quadrupolar nuclei, biomolecules, protons at high MAS and high field.

The Mitteldeutsches Resonanztreffen MDR-52 will take place on Nov 20, 2023 in the Small Lecture Hall of the Fakultät für Chemie & Mineralogie of the Universität Leipzig. Prof. Boris Fine (Leipzig University), Dr. Gleb Silantyev (Bruker-Biospin GmbH), Dr. Albert Smith-Penzel (Leipzig University) and Prof. Robert Bittl (FU Berlin) will give exciting talks on current developments in the field of magnetic resonance.
Officially, the Collaborative Research Centre “Hyperpolarization in Molecular Systems” already started on 1 October, but such a large project deserves a ceremonial launch, which also and especially includes groundbreaking planning and decisions for the 1st funding period. This meeting at the TU Chemnitz will begin on 29 November with an opening event with invited guests and, among other highlights, a guided tour of the campus. The following days serve to present the HYP*MOL projects, to get to know the first doctoral students and to elect the TRR committees. The meeting, where international shining lights of hyperpolarization, including Mercator Fellows and International Advisors, will contribute their valuable expertise, will end on 2 December.
The event “Career Options for Chemistry students” organized by the Career Service & the Friends of the Faculty of Chemistry and Mineralogy association addresses to those who want to be shown possible perspectives for their career path. The speakers report on their own experiences in this regard and provide some insights of their current positions.
Date: Friday, June 9, 2023, 4.00 – 5.30/ 6.00 p.m.
Location: Faculty of Chemistry & Mineralogy, Johannisallee 29, R 014
Ibrahim Soliman, Quality Manager at Entrhal Medical GmbH
Dr. René Schnorr, Section Head Water Chemistry at State Office for Consumer Protection, Saxony-Anhalt
Dr. Nora Hartner, Lab Team Leader Analytical Chemistry at BASF SE
Hosted by Susanne Benko and Maximilian Preuß. For more information access this link.
The conference, held at the Universität Leipzig, will provide a forum for fruitful scientific exchange, a valuable tool for competence building and knowledge transfer between the different methods of hyperpolarization. The program will consist of invited lectures and contributed papers. The conference language will be English.
The Mitteldeutsches Resonanztreffen MDR-51 will take place on May 23, 2023 in the Small Lecture Hall of the Fakultät für Chemie & Mineralogie of the Universität Leipzig.
The school (Youth hostel Schloss Windischleuba, 40 km South of Leipzig/Germany) is the second in a cycle of four schools and will be dedicated to Relaxation: Basics of NMR, basic quantum mechanics, Hamiltonians, Liouville space and super operators, Redfield theory, correlation functions and spectral density functions, relaxation pathways, relaxation mechanisms, relaxation in solids, relaxometry, paramagnetic relaxation, thermalization, Lindblaad formalism. Teachers: Christian Bengs (Univ. Southampton), Matthias Ernst (ETH Zürich), Amir Goldbourt (Tel Aviv University), Paul Schanda (IST Austria), Albert Smith (Univ. Leipzig). Organizer: Jörg Matysik (Univ. Leipzig).
