Threats of drug-resistant pathogens are emerging worldwide and ask for development of novel drugs that act on the pathogen’s molecular networks. This demands a new generation of bright scientists who are able to combine molecular biology, microbiology, systems biology and drug discovery and development.

Third Call for Applications

As we have availability for one more position, we are organising a third Call for Applications with a shortened procedure.

We are looking for highly motivated and talented MSc students who are interested in an ambitious multidisciplinary PhD project on antimicrobial research and resistance. The purpose of AIMMS STAR PLUS is to continue to educate and train Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) to become the next generation of interdisciplinary antimicrobial research scientists, skilled in the research methodologies and approaches of diverse areas such as molecular modelling, proteomics, cell signalling and drug discovery & development.

The Amsterdam Institute for Molecules, Medicines and Systems (AIMMS) at VU Amsterdam, has been awarded an MSCA Cofund grant for continuation of its STAR graduate programme. The AIMMS STAR graduate programme offers a unique opportunity for Master’s students in their final months, or recently graduated students, to learn more about antimicrobial research and resistance by writing their own short research proposal, under supervision of an AIMMS researcher.

In short, we are looking for –international- MSc students who:

  • Are highly motivated and top-talented
  • Are keen on intra-European mobility to perform PhD research, specifically in Amsterdam
  • Are able to work in a multidisciplinary team
  • Have good writing and communication skills
  • Are keen on finding solutions for solving problems related to antimicrobial research and resistance

Interested candidates are asked to send in a CV, motivation letter and their own 2-page research proposal (written under supervision of an AIMMS researcher) before 15 December 2018, 12.00 pm. CEST. Interviews with the candidates will be scheduled for January 2019. Ultimate start date is 1 March 2019.

Interested MSc students will have to comply with the mobility rules set out by the MSCA (i.e. not spent more than 1 year in NL in the 3 years prior to the starting date of the PhD position).
