Scientific Internship: Live Bacteria under Confinement

Date posted July 24, 2018
Type Scientific Internships

We are looking for highly motivated candidates interested in working on current topics in biophysics. Our aim is to investigate the dynamics of living bacteria in constrained geometries to understand bacterial motility in natural environments. The experiments rely on microfluidics, fluorescence and bright-field microscopy. The combination of established data analysis methods like particle tracking with the very novel differential dynamics microscopy will allow to uncover the time- and length-scale dependent dynamics.

About the group

Biological Soft Matter


The candidates should have a Bachelor’s degree in physics or in a related subject and participate in a Master study in a related field. A background in soft matter and biological physics is desirable, but not required. The internship must be a mandatory part of your curriculum. You have a nationality of an EU-member state or if not, you are a student at a Netherlands University. You must be available for at least 6 months.

Terms of employment

At the start of the traineeship your trainee plan will be set out, in consultation with your AMOLF supervisor.
