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.

For more details about the position and the application procedure, check:


Or contact Dr. Montse Barcena (M.Barcena at lumc.nl)
