We are looking for a highly motivated person who is excited to push cell biology into a quantitative direction by applying and developing novel (AI-based) image analysis methods. Our ideal candidate feels comfortable in a multidisciplinary group and is eager to learn new methods, tools and concepts ranging from computer science and physics to cell biology. Possible projects will focus on optimizing tracking algorithms for cargo transport in neurons, classification of transport patterns, segmentation, tracing and general image restoration. Available tools are built on ImageJ, deep learning, Bayesian inference and other machine learning techniques. A good understanding of and interest in these tools and programming is required.


To excel in this role, you have:

  • a background in physics, computer science, mathematics or cell biology;
  • a good command of English, written and spoken.

You can also easily integrate yourself into a multidisciplinary environment and you are curious about image analysis to understand intracellular processes.


  • a position for four years with an evaluation after one year;
  • a full-time gross salary from €2,325 in the first year to €2,972 in the fourth year in P-scale;
  • benefits including 8% holiday bonus and 8.3% end-of-year bonus;
  • pension scheme, partially paid parental leave, and flexible employment conditions based on the Collective Labour Agreement Dutch Universities (cao).

In addition to the employment conditions laid down in the cao for Dutch Universities, Utrecht University has a number of its own arrangements. For example agreements on professional development, leave and sports. We also give you the opportunity to expand your personal terms of employment yourself via the Employment Conditions Selection Model. This way we like to encourage you to continue to grow.
