Functieomschrijving

The Aubin-Tam group at TU Delft is looking for a highly motivated PhD student with a Master in either biochemistry, biophysics, or a related field. Investigating the response of individual biomolecules and cells in response to external physical/chemical stimuli helps us to understand the molecular mechanisms driving biological processes. This PhD work is concerned with designing, developing and using biophysical assays to track dynamical cellular processes occurring at the cell membrane. In particular, optical tweezers will be used to elucidate the mode of action of a molecular motor integrated in the membrane. The project is highly interdisciplinary and involves biochemistry, physics and instrumentation.

Functie-eisen

The candidate should have a Master degree in the field of chemistry, biochemistry, physics, biophysics or a related field. The position will be for a fixed term of four years and is expected to result in a PhD. Good communication skills in English are required.      

Conditions

The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers child care and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.
As a PhD candidate you will be enrolled in the TU Delft Graduate School. The TU Delft Graduate School provides an inspiring research environment; an excellent team of supervisors, academic staff and a mentor; and a Doctoral Education Programme aimed at developing your transferable, discipline-related and research skills.
