We are always looking for outstanding experimentalists with a degree in (bio)physics, chemistry, biology or an equivalent degree who is motivated to collaborate in a multidisciplinary environment. The group aims at research at the highest international level; candidates that fit into this environment are invited to apply.
Applications (including motivation & CV) can be addressed to Prof. dr. Gijs J.L. Wuite (firstname.lastname@example.org)
1) PhD or Postdoc: DNA-protein interactions using a combination of optical tweezers and single-molecule fluorescent microscopy as well as super-resolution microscopy
2) PhD or Postdoc: Investigate the self-assembly of viral-shells using optical tweezers and Atomic Force Microscopy
The successful applicant will perform experiments on DNA-protein systems using single molecule techniques. He or she might work on instrumentation development, be involved in sample preparation, and/or perform biophysical experiments and data analysis.
General conditions of employment PhD
The initial contract is for one year, it can - by mutual agreement - be extended to four years. The aim is to have a thesis finished at the end of the fourth year. The gross monthly starting salary is € ~1900 and increases to € ~2500 in the fourth year.
General conditions of employment Postdoc
The contract is for two or three years. The gross monthly starting salary is € ~2800 or higher depending on experience.
Project will be carried out in the Physics of Living Systems section at the department of Physics and Astronomy, VU University Amsterdam, under supervision of Prof. dr. G.J.L. Wuite. The section has strong expertise in the application of single-molecule methods (optical tweezers, atomic force microscopy and single-molecule fluorescence microscopy) to the study of biological systems such as motor proteins and DNA-binding proteins.
