Job Opportunities

We are looking for two motivated candidates with background in physics, biology or bioinformatics. The candidates should have high interest in biophysics. One of the candidates will develop a new method of high throughout single-molecule fluorescence. The other will develop a single-molecule protein sequencer.


We are looking for a motivated candidate with background in biophysicsA post-doc position is available through various fellowships. Newly graduated post-docs are eligible for Veni (a Dutch grant) and EMBO long-term fellowship. Post-docs, who are not associated with any Dutch institutes, are eligible for Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship (a European grant for newcomers).
Laura Restrepo in Highlight

MSc degree in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology from KU Leuven (Belgium) and TU Dresden (Germany). 
Currently: PhD student at Bionanoscience/Chirlmin Joo lab, TU Delft

I came to Europe all the way from Colombia to pursue my master studies as part of the Erasmus Mundus program in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. After completing my degree, I started looking for a PhD position, but it was not easy to find a place in which physics, biology and nanoscience were so strongly connected. Luckily, Dr. Chirlmin Joo from the Bionanoscience department of TU Delft had an idea for a very multidisciplinary and interesting project, so here I am! Now I am using solid state nanopores to develop a new technique for protein sequencing in collaboration with Prof. Cees Dekker. (Casimir Research School)
