MERLN is a growing institute and new positions are frequently available. Prospective PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to apply for open vacancies. For international candidates, it is noteworthy that it is the norm in the Netherlands to directly apply for a PhD position as it becomes advertised. This is in contrast with some countries (e.g., US, Canada, UK) where you apply to a University or Graduate School with a set annual deadline. If you are interested in performing your doctoral research at MERLN, you should search for an open vacancy and apply before the deadline closes.
Keep an eye on this page for the latest vacancies. You should apply via the Academic Transfer website.
Our Principal Investigators (PIs) also welcome open applications from outstanding candidates at any time. Please submit your CV and cover letter to the PI of interest by email.
We are currently looking for a postdoctoral researcher with expertise in molecular biology to join two ongoing projects in the field of regenerative medicine: 1) RegMed XB Kidney Moonshot (www.regmedxb.com), which aims to differentiate iPSCs into kidney organoids to create a therapy for patients with end-stage kidney disease, and 2) molecular regeneration, which aims to identify and use miRNA and lncRNA to modulate stem cell behavior for regeneration. More information can be found here. Application deadline is November 9th.
There is an opening for a data manager at the Materials-Driven Regeneration (MDR) Gravitation program, where MERLN is one of the partners. One of the position's main goals is to define a data architecture that brings out the best of the collective data sets and is attractive for MDR scientists to use and improve, and that provides handles to faithfully and robustly answer some of the scientific questions of the consortium. More information can be found here. Application deadline is October 30th.
