We are (on purpose) a fairly small group, but we do have space to grow. We would therefore welcome new colleagues who, like us, would like to apply their theoretical skills to (bio)physical systems in close collaboration with experimentalists. We try to always have room for motivated MSc and BSc students from physics, nanobiology, mathematics, and related fields, though we will only have openings for new BSc students after the summer of 2019. We have no openings for PhD students or postdocs at present, but if you are interested in what we do and are willing to apply for a personal fellowship / grant (e.g. Marie Curie or Veni grants), please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss these plans.
PhD student / Postdoc
We currently have no open positions for PhD students or Postdocs. However, strong candidates are always welcome to contact us, if you are interested in the option of applying for a personal fellowship / grant (e.g. Marie Curie or Veni grants). That would also imply you (partially) design your own research project, within the general research interests of our group. Feel free to contact Timon Idema for more details.
Possible funding sources for postdoc grants:
- NWO Veni
Next deadline: September 3, 2019
- Origins of Life (3 year fellowship)
Next deadline: unknown
- Marie Curie Individual Fellowship
Next deadline: expected September 2019
- Life Sciences Research Foundation
Next deadline: October 1, 2019
- Human Frontier Science Program
Next deadline: expected August 2019
- EMBO Fellowship
- James S. McDonnell Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship
Next deadline: June 13, 2019
- Helen Hay Whitney Foundation (Americans only)
Next deadline: expected early July 2019
Bachelor's / Master's students
We will have openings for both BSc and MSc students starting in the fall (starting September 2019; MSc students can start the prepatory part of their project before the summer). See our flyer for some project ideas, and feel free to contact Timon Idema if you are interested in learning more.
