Faculty Applied Sciences

With more than 1,000 employees, including 135 pioneering principal investigators, as well as a population of about 3,400 passionate students, the Faculty of Applied Sciences is an inspiring scientific ecosystem. Focusing on key enabling technologies, such as quantum- and nanotechnology, photonics, biotechnology, synthetic biology and materials for energy storage and conversion, our faculty aims to provide solutions to important problems of the 21st century. To that end, we train students in broad Bachelor's and specialist Master's programmes with a strong research component. Our scientists conduct ground-breaking fundamental and applied research in the fields of Life and Health Science & Technology, Nanoscience, Chemical Engineering, Radiation Science & Technology, and Engineering Physics. We are also training the next generation of high school teachers and science communicators.

The Joo group (www.chirlmin.org) is a single-molecule biophysics research lab within the Department of Bionanoscience at the TU Delft. Using single-molecule fluorescence tools, we investigate how proteins interact with RNA, DNA, and proteins. We develop new single-molecule platforms such as massively parallel single-molecule fluorescence and single-molecule protein sequencing.

Functie omschrijving

We are looking for a highly motivated student or post-doctoral fellow with significant biochemistry research experience to work in the Joo lab. The selected candidate will take a lead in a single-molecule project. The candidate will use single-molecule fluorescence and develop a new single-molecule protein analysis platform to investigate protein interactions.

Functie eisen

The candidate should have a MSc or PhD degree in the field of biology or related. Research experiences in biochemistry is required. An application from a candidate who is experienced in cell biology will be favorably treated, but this is not a requirement. Good communication skills in English are required.
