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.

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).
