The Corzilius Group

About us

We are a research group situated at the seam between the Center for Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance (BMRZ) and the Institute for Physical and Theoretical Chemistry (PTC) at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. Our young group has been recently founded within the Emmy Noether framework by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).

Dr. Björn Corzilius

Our research is focused towards Solid-State Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP): the development of new methods within this field, and their application towards biomolecular problems. The impressive collection of state-of-the-art magnetic resonance instrumentation we have access to at BMRZ as well as the highly collaborative environment within BMRZ and PTC aids us to achieve these goals.

Feel free to browse our site, take a look at our research projects, or contact us to learn more about us. We are always looking for talented and motivated PhD students and postdocs, so do not hesitate to check our job offers and send your applications!
