Welcome to my 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 Sep. 2016 or later. Positions are now available for grad students interested in projects on pharmaceuticals, supramolecular and framework materials, nanoparticles and catalysts. Graduate students with interest in physical, computational, inorganic, organic, materials and/or analytical chemistry are encouraged to apply. If interested, please contact me via email. Applications can be made via our Graduate Studies webpage.

Please note, I only consider PDF applications from students with extensive background in Solid-State NMR.
