Students are great to have in the lab. Many of my students have continued to do a PhD. We host around 10 MSc students per year. If you are looking for a BEP or MEP (Bachelor or Master End Project), Master Thesis or Internship and would like to acquire modern molecular biology and microbiology skills (e.g. cloning, sequencing, annotation, protein purification, enzyme characterization, DNA mutagenesis, genome editing, high throughput screening and selection, next generation sequencing etc.), then apply by sending an e-mail with motivation and a short CV. We have a variety of topics available ranging from investigating microbial phage defense systems (CRISPR and Cas9) to isolating and improving bacteriophages for phage therapy applications. We host students at Delft University of Technology, Department of Bionanoscience.
My lab is interested in the interaction between microbes and bacteriophages. We study the mechanisms that bacteria use to protect themselves from infections including CRISPR, and explore the adaptations that viruses have evolved to avoid defence systems. We isolate and engineer bacteriophages for phage therapy applications.
