Faculty of Science
Department of Chemistry

David Bryce is a Full Professor and has been on faculty in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Ottawa since 2005. He has also served as Chair of the department since 2016. He holds the University Research Chair in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance. He completed his B.Sc. (Honours) at Queen’s University (1998), his Ph.D. at Dalhousie University (2002), and an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the NIH (2003-04).  His research focuses on nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, employing powerful magnetic fields to explore the behaviour of molecules at the subatomic level. He has co-authored 170 publications in the areas of solid-state NMR, biomolecular NMR, and quantum chemistry, with applications to inorganic materials, polymorphism, NMR crystallography, and weak non-covalent interactions.  He currently serves as the Chair of the Steering Committee of the National Ultrahigh-Field NMR Facility for Solids, as a Section Editor (Magnetic Resonance and Molecular Spectroscopy) of the Canadian Journal of Chemistry, and as Editor-in-Chief of Solid State Nuclear Magnetic Resonance. He is a past Section Co-Chair (Physical & Analytical Chemistry) of the NSERC Discovery Grants Chemistry Evaluation Group.
