We are continuously looking for PhD students and postdocs with an interest in biosensing, plasmonics & photonics, and single-molecule microscopy. In addition to the positions advertised on the site, there is of course always the option to arrange short or longer-term visits of our group, or to apply for grants on an individual basis. Please contact Peter Zijlstra if you are interested!

Welcome to the molecular plasmonics lab at Eindhoven University of Technology. We are an interdisciplinary team of physicists and chemists that develop approaches for single-molecule sensing with the aim to study individual biomolecules in complex environments. Our research particularly focuses on single-molecule biosensing using optical (plasmonic, photonic, and fluorescent) approaches. Read more about our work on our research pages.
