PhD position: Single-cell dynamics within lung organoids
The ‘Quantitative Developmental Biology’ research group will use a quantitative, physics-inspired approach to study problems in developmental biology, focusing on the small roundworm C. elegans. The aim of the research is to elucidate how living organisms can...
PhD position: Single proteins and chaperones at the ribosome
Chaperones are central to protein biogenesis, but their action at the ribosome remains poorly understood. A central complication is the highly dynamic nature of this process, which involves polypeptide synthesis, folding, chaperone binding and ATP cycles, as well as a...

PhD position: Physics of cancer development
Studies over the last few decades have revealed cancer to be a frightfully complex disease. Most recently it was shown that the cells within a single tumor are strongly different from each other. This heterogeneity is a major stumbling block for drug therapies, which typically...
