Nano- and microtechnologies are powerful tools to engineer, probe and detect very small amounts of biological material. Investigations range from nano- and microtechnologies for the control of biological assays in lab-on-a-chip devices, to nanotechnologies for biophysical studies of molecules and cells. The aim is always to achieve quantitative control and understanding of biophysical interactions, with resolution down to single molecules and single cells.
We have a position available for an assistant professor in the group Molecular Biosensors for Medical Diagnostics (headed by prof. Prins, ). The group is a member of the Institute for Complex Molecular Systems ( ) and the BioNano centre of the federation of Dutch Universities of Technology ( ).
We focus on investigating nanotechnologies for studies of proteins and protein function, both in a molecular and a cellular context, with application potential in medical biosensing. We collaborate intensively with research groups working in molecular and cellular biology, biophysical theory, and in industrial and clinical applications.
The new assistant professor is expected to:

This position is intended as an entry level for applicants aspiring to become associate professor or full professor. The initial appointment will be for four years. After three years a decision about permanent employment will be made. The gross salary will be in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement of the Dutch Universities (CAO NU). The university offers an attractive package of fringe benefits such as excellent technical infrastructure, child care, saving schemes and excellent sports facilities.
