Our lab has funded openings for students and postdocs of all levels – undergraduate, graduate (M.Sc. and PhD), junior or senior postdocs, with a background in biology, physics, engineering, or chemistry, who are interested to work on the physical biology of bacterial cell shape and growth.
Our lab is supervising undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in the Departments of Microbiology, Infection and Immunity, and from the Department of Physics.
- Internships for Undergraduate Students in Physics or Biology
We are open to students of all levels, who bring an interest in quantitative approaches. Prior experience with bacteria, microscopy, or coding is not required but a plus. The student will conduct her/his own experiments as part of an ongoing research project in the lab (for an incomplete list see here) or develop an independent project. Please contact Sven for currently available projects.
- Master and PhD projects for students with a background in Biology or Physics
We are seeking students with a background in physics, engineering, chemistry, or biology that bring a keen interest in quantitative interdisciplinary approaches. Experience in computational analysis, microscopy, cloning/synthetic biology, microfluidics, or instrumentation, is a plus. For an incomplete list of potential topics see here.
- Postdoctoral position in Quantitative Phase Microscopy (QPM), microfluidics, and cell-envelope biology
We are searching for a candidate with a strong expertise in microscopy, microfluidics, and/or (bacterial) cell biology, to work on bacterial organization, including single-cell growth, volume regulation, turgor pressure, nucleoid organization, and macromolecular crowding.
For applications, please send by email (in English) a motivation letter and CV to sven[dot]vanteeffelen[at]gmail[dot]com.
