We can offer a wide variety of MSc projects,

In their projects, students can learn about many (combinations of) topics, including:

  • Gene manipulation technologies
  • Protein expression and purification
  • Basic and advanced enzymology
  • Applied enzymology
  • Bioorganic analytics (various types of chromatography and mass spectrometry)
  • Omics technologies, in particular (meta-)proteomics
  • Protein structure, engineering and bioinformatics
  • Bioprocess development (normally in collaboration with Bioref)
  • Molecular microbiology
  • Cell biology


Available positions for PhD students and post-docs are announced at If there are no announced positions, we cannot normally offer a position. However, if you have a strong CV and motivation to work on our topics, you are welcome to contact us. Do not send standard letters without a clear specific motivation for working with us; such letters will be discarded.



Some examples of MSc topics are:
