Welcome to my new homepage!
My name is Rob Schurko, and I am a professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Windsor in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. My research interests focus upon applications of Solid-State Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, X-ray crystallography and quantum chemical calculations to the study of inorganic materials, organometallic complexes and organic solids (e.g., pharmaceuticals and amino acids). I am also very interested in development and applications of special pulse sequences or the acquisition of solid-state NMR spectra of unreceptive quadrupolar and spin-1/2 nuclei.
Interested in NMR?
I am currently looking for students interested in working on their M.Sc. or Ph.D. in Chemistry in the area of Solid-State Nuclear Magnetic Resonance starting in May 2013 or later. Graduate students with interest in physical, computational, inorganic and/or analytical chemistry are encouraged to apply. If interested, please contact me via email, and applications can be made via our Graduate Studies webpage.
