Open Positions

We filled in all PhD-student and post-doc vacancies.

Internship positions

Inquiries from talented and motivated graduate and undergraduate students to work on various aspects of our research are always welcome. We have extensive experience with student supervision, but there is a limited number of positions available due to the close supervision we prefer.

Throughout the year, we offer both practical projects and internships dedicated to analysis of neuronal activity.

Please send an email to: christiaan.de.kock[at]falw.vu.nl to discuss the options. In your mail, please indicate which project has your interest accompanied with a motivation letter.
