There are regularly openings for PhD students and Post-docs in my group and neighbouring labs. If you are interested in joining, please send me your CV and a motivation letter.
For a list of previous PhD/Post-doc positions see below.
• Developing High speed AFM for studies of vesicle dynamics
This project centres around the development of a High Speed AFM, together with an AFM company. The developed technique will be used to study the dynamics of artificial and cell-derived lipid vesicles. These vesicles are currently heavily studied for applications in nanomedicine, but their physical properties remain poorly understood. We will change this!
• Viral assembly: what happens at the molecular level?
While the properties of virions (infectious viral particles) are increasingly well described, there remains a large gap in our knowledge concerning the ways in which they assemble. Using High Speed AFM as well as force spectroscopy approaches, we will now scrutinize the physics of the fascinatingly complex process of virus self-assembly.
• Scrutinizing genome-protein interactions
In the cell there is a continuous interplay between nucleic acids and cellular proteins. Using advanced techniques such as Fluorescence Optical Tweezers and High Speed Atomic Force Microscopy the PhD student will study the physics of this interplay. The combination of force spectroscopy expriments and nm-scale imaging will allow an unprecented view on these interactions.
For more details, please contact Wouter Roos, directly.
We are always looking for talented Master students to share our fascination for Physics of Life. Are you interested? Contact Wouter Roos to discuss possible projects and the involved methods and skills you can learn, while working on them.
We are always looking for talented Bachelor students, who want to make first steps in practical biophysics. Are you interested? Contact Wouter Roos to discuss possible projects and the involved methods and skills you can learn, while working on them.
