• 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) 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

Postdoc, Computational modeling of kidney toxin transport
  • A postdoc position is available at MERLN as part of the RegMed XB virtual institute. RegMed XB is composed of universities, health foundations, governments and private companies in the Netherlands and Belgium. The partners work together to tackle some of the greatest challenges in regenerative medicine, while building a community of researchers and companies to realize health and economic benefits. As a first step, the partners of RegMed XB will work towards creating a functional subunit of a bioengineered kidney. In this postdoc position, you will perform cutting-edge research in computational modeling methods applied to regenerative medicine and, more specifically, to kidney toxin transport in microfluidic set-ups, organoid culture systems and/or bioartificial kidney devices. More information about the project, the requirements and the application process can be found on Academic Transfer. Application deadline is July 12, 2020.
