The AMC is more than just a hospital. It is a world in which patient care, research and education are integrated, and in which people are always central. It is an academic world full of possibilities for talented individuals that are looking for a place where they can excel. Thinking big, daring to dream, cooperating internationally. And never letting yourself be put off by ‘It’s not possible’ or ’It won’t work anyway’. That is the AMC mentality.
The candidate would be working in a young and dynamic research group, with other PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers, graduate students and research technicians, under the supervision of the AMC Principal Investigator on Ticks and Tick-borne Diseases, Professor Joppe WR Hovius, MD, PhD. The group is embedded in the well-equipped Center for Experimental and Molecular Medicine (CEMM) within the AMC.
