PhD Position in Cellular Imaging at University of Antwerpen

Abstract

This position will be in close collaboration with the Electron Microscopy for Materials Science lab (EMAT). Here the following equipment will be available:
1 scanning electron microscope
1 dual beam FIB
6 transmission electron microscopes (TEM)

The most advanced TEM, will be of crucial importance for this project and is unique in Europe. The microscope is a double lens corrected instrument working at voltages between 50 and 300 kV and achieving a resolution of 50 pm. It also has a monochromator to lower the energy resolution to about 150 meV.

Job description
Combining small animal MRI using contrast agents and/or nanoparticles for stem cell research and nerve fiber tracing with advanced EM tools to simultaneously image cellular ultrastructure and localization of nanoparticles. The aim of this project is to get a better comprehension of the cell-nanoparticle interactions.

Profile
We are looking for a highly motivated scientist with a clear focus on research. The candidate should hold a Master in Biology, Biomedical Sciences, Bio Engineer or a similar degree (M2 students can also apply).
