• Vacancies


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.

Open vacancies

Two Postdocs - Cell therapy for cornea regeneration
  • We seek two postdoctoral researchers to join our team developing cell therapies for ophthalmic diseases and conditions. The overall aim of this project is to bring a cell therapy for corneal endothelial disease into the clinic. We are working in a public–private partnership to optimize the cell biology in vitro, perform pre-clinical studies, and initiate a clinical study. These positions are ideally suited to researchers with the ambition to work on a highly translational project. In addition to challenging scientific aims, we seek someone who wants to participate in the other elements of a successful cell therapy, such as designing (pre-)clinical trials, obtaining ethical approval, and monitoring intellectual property developments. More information about the project, the requirements and the application process can be found on Academic Transfer. Application deadline is August 28, 2022.
