Full Time
The Applied Physics research group (http://we.vub.ac.be/aphy/About) is a multidisciplinary group of enthusiastic researchers that use experimental and theoretical methods to address fundamental challenges in biological physics, condensed matter physics, electromagnetism, laser physics and photonics. This combination allows an imaginative, cross-disciplinary and insightful approach to such problems. For example, we focus on the study of metamaterials and nanophotonics, on bio-inspired approaches to machine learning (reservoir computing), on the dynamics of semiconductor lasers, nonequilibrium pattern formation and soliton dynamics, as well as on genetic transcription, cell division & microbial interactions in biological systems. APHY is recognised as a leading and growing research group by the university. For that reason, in 2014 it received a Strategic Research Project “Applied Physics and Systems Biology” (2014-2019).





To apply, please send your CV including grades, a motivation letter (one page) and a letter of reference (to be sent separately). Your motivation letter should briefly describe your research interests and why you are interested in joining our group. Please send your application material by email to sdebuyl@vub.ac.be. The position is open until filled and the expected starting date is September 1, 2016 (or earlier). Also students in their last year expecting to get their Master's diploma before Sept. 1 may apply.
