Job Opportunities

Single-Molecule Protein Sequencing
We develop protein sequencing methods that will provide unprecedentedly high sensitivity. We are looking for four young scientists with background in physics (a nanopore project with the Maglia group), organic chemistry (the Eelkema group), biochemistry (protein engineering with the Meyer group), and bioinformatics (software development with the de Ridder group). An additional project (fluorescence) is available via LEaDing fellowship (due Dec 31, 2017)Contact Chirlmin Joo.

From Anti-Viral Defense to Genome Editing
We study CRISPR biology and RNA/DNA interference (Argonaute). For studying CRISPR biology, we are looking for a candidate with background in biology or biochemistry. For studying RNA/DNA interference, we are looking for a candidate to develop a high throughput single-molecule fluorescence method, who has background in biophysics, biomedical sciences, or bioinformatics. Post-doc positions are available through LEaDing fellowship (due Dec 31, 2017). Contact Chirlmin Joo.

Postdoctoral 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).

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)
