We are constantly looking for motivated PhD and Postdoc candidates with a background in physics, engineering, or quantitative biology, who have a keen interest to use state-of-the-art microscopy, modeling, and genetics to decipher the regulation of bacterial physiology.
The interdisciplinary lab is generally interested in how single cells control and coordinate shape, volume, cell-cycle progression, metabolism, and other aspects of physiology in view of fluctuations of both intra- and extracellular conditions. We have developed tools to control cellular physiology through precise modifications of gene expression, and we have established a broad repertoire of microscopy-based methods to extract single-cell and sub-cellular physical properties. The lab is composed of students and postdocs from physics, biology, and bioengineering.
Funding is guaranteed through an ERC starting grant. However, candidates are also expected to apply to postdoctoral fellowship programs.
For applications or questions please contact Sven van Teeffelen (firstname.lastname@example.org). For applications please send a motivation letter and CV, and indicate 2 references. See our website for references:
Earliest possible start date: May 2018. PhD students typically start in the fall.
Deadline for application: open until filled
