Job openings

We are always eager to hear from skilled and motivated people who would like to join our group as PhD students or postdocs. We have a preference for applicants who combine extensive knowledge of biological mechanisms with strong computational skills. Note however that we generally only have vacancies for specific projects, when these are granted. These vacancies will be posted both below and on the Wageningen University & Research vacancy site.

If you are an (aspiring) postdoc, please consider writing a fellowship proposal to, e.g., FEBS, EMBO, HFSP or NWO to fund a research project of your own design that has our joint interest. In such a case, feel free to send us your application or contact us for more information. Applications should include a full curriculum vitae, a convincing letter of motivation describing your fit to one of our research lines, and preprints of any publications listed on your cv that are not yet available online.
