SmFRET PhD and postdoc position in Belgium!
The Dynamic Bioimaging 'Hendrix' Lab at Hasselt University in Belgium is looking for a PhD student and a postdoc to work on smFRET methodology developments and smFRET applications in biology!
We develop novel and robust fluorescence microscopy methods and apply them in a variety of research projects across all domains of life. The focus of our investigations are complex proteins and biological pathways, where we use our single-molecule fluorescence methods to provide novel insights in the molecular basis of function. We are looking for a PhD student and a postdoctoral researcher to develop novel realtime protein structural biology methods based on single-molecule Förster resonance energy transfer. The novel methods are subsequently applied to study protein structural dynamics.
PhD student: We welcome both technical (bio/engineering/physics) or life science backgrounds, but the applicant should have a profound interest in fluorescence and in molecular studies!
Postdoc: You have a proven background and experience in operating, aligning and/or building your own optical systems and/or microscopy hard/software programming.
Applicants should provide a CV explaining their study/research background and career path, and a motivation letter explaining what interests them in the offered positions. Suitable profiles are invited to present their research achievements in a virtual meeting. Although funding is available, candidates should also be eligible and willing to apply for e.g. a scholarship.
