We would like to draw your attention to the availability of several PhD and Post-doc positions within a new Nanoscopy lab in Maastricht, The Netherlands. The positions are available from September and are for a maximum of 4 years.
Job description:The research of the lab will focus on understanding the molecular machinery involved in the pathogenicity of mycobacterium species. It will develop and employ tools for the structural characterization of large macromolecular complexes within their cellular environment. Positions are available with accents on the study of multimeric complexes, entire cells and organoids, correlative light electron microscopy procedures, bioreactors, and the tomographic analysis of samples exposed to different test compounds.
Requirements: The successful candidates hold a master degree (PhD candidates) or PhD (post-doc candidates) in biology, biochemistry, biophysics or related fields. Strong written and oral communication skills as well as demonstrated affinity with high-end equipment and/or computation are required. Is it strongly preferred to have experience with one or more of the following techniques: single particle cryo-microscopy, cryo-electron tomography, super-resolution microscopy, correlative light electron microscopy, modelling, protein expression and purification, macromolecular crystallography.
Candidates should be fluent in English, knowledge of Dutch is not required.
ESR Marie Curie PhD candidates should also have no more than 4 years of research experience, and not have resided or worked in the Netherlands for more than 12 months during the last 3 years.
