We currently have an opening for a postdoctoral researcher on single-molecule microscopy of ice binding proteins and polymers! More information can be found here.

Welcome to the Voets lab at Eindhoven University of Technology. We are an interdisciplinary team of chemists, physicists, biologists, and engineers, studying self-assembly processes in (biological) soft matter to gain fundamental insights that we translate into rational design strategies for novel functional soft materials. Read more about our work on our research pages below.
