    collaboration with the world-renown Brussels-based company
    Nanomegas.

    Postdoc position Microsystems for cryomicroscopy
    Announcement date: 12 January 2023

    [show details]

    Description

    The focus of this position is on microfluidic cryofixation. Cryofixation is the gold standard for preserving the structure of proteins and cells so that they can be imaged under vacuum by electron cryomicroscopy. Here the aim is to devise microfluidic devices and associated micro-mechatronic instruments to investigate the dynamic ultrastructural response of specific cell types to transient mechanical, chemical, and thermal stimuli. 

    Requirements

    The position is best suited for researchers with a background in experimental physics or engineering who have some wet-lab experience and enjoy hands-on hardware development (e.g. microfabrication, precision mechanics, microscopy optics) for biomedical research at the cell level.
