The magnetic moment and magnetic polarisability of the neutron and proton are investigated using the uniform background-field method and lattice QCD. The results are calculated using $32^3\times64$ dynamical QCD lattices provided by the PACS-CS collaboration through the ILDG. Methods of isolating the energy of the hadrons accounting for Landau level energies are explored. Effective energy shifts are formed from combinations of correlation functions and their efficiency in isolating the magnetic moment and polarisability terms is determined.
