Ph.D. position at LUMC (The Netherlands)

We are seeking a highly motivated candidate for a Ph.D. position in the group of Electron Microscopy at LUMC (Leiden, The Netherlands). The project will focus on the development and application of correlative light-electron microscopy (CLEM) to the study of the replication of positive-strand RNA viruses, and will be complemented with biochemical and molecular biology approaches. The project is part of a long-standing collaboration between the Electron Microscopy Section (Prof. Bram Koster’s group) and Molecular Virology (Prof. Eric Snijder’s group) at LUMC.
The Electron Microscopy Section’s infrastructure and expertise comprise a very wide range of specimen preparation and imaging tools. The group has unique equipment for (cryo) correlative microscopy applications. Part of the research will be carried out in the new facilities of the Netherlands Centre for Electron Nanoscopy (NeCen, http://www.necen.nl), located in the vicinity of LUMC.

Or contact Dr. Montse Barcena (M.Barcena@lumc.nl)
Leiden is a nice historic small-scale town with a large university and a lively student atmosphere. The town is in the heart of the country, directly connected by train to Amsterdam (30 min) and Amsterdam’s airport (15 min), and only 3 hours away by train from Paris.
