We currently have an opening for a fully-funded PhD position on nanomechanical devices to study the dynamic actuation of force-sensitive protein nanopores. The project will combine on-chip acoustics and nanofluidics with single-molecule conductance measurements. Candidates with a strong experimental background in (bio)physics, biochemistry or engineering are encouraged to apply.
Details about the application procedure can be found here
Note that Masters and Bachelors projects are only available to students already enrolled in a masters program at a university in the Netherlands.
1. Mechanical steering of biomolecules using surface acoustic waves
2. Effect of membrane stiffness on single-molecule protein nanopore conductance measurements
