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.
