Ph.D. students and Postdoc applicants

Open positions will be advertised as pinned posts on the main page or on Twitter. If you are interested in joining anyways, and might have some ideas about how and where to get potential funding, I am all ears.

Internships, Bachelor- and Master-theses

Love single molecules? We are always looking for interested students to work on various projects at the interface of biology, chemistry, and physics. Current projects include (but are not limited to):

  • Studying DNA – protein interactions using single-molecule techniques in vitro (DNA polymerases, plant related transcription factors,…)
  • Super-resolution microscopy and single-particle tracking on antiviral defence (with Laboratory of Microbiology) and in food systems (with Food Process Engineering and Laboratory of Bionanotechnology)
  • Development of hardware and software for single-molecule detection
  • (Additional cross-interdisciplinary projects on request)
