This PhD position is part of research project NANOSPRESSO-NL (funded by the Dutch Research Council NWA-ORC). This project aims to research, develop, and implement a technology for decentralized and small-scale production of high- quality and affordable nucleic acid nanomedicines to improve the quality of care for patients with (ultra)orphan diseases. These diseases affect many Europeans, despite the fact that the number of people suffering from any individual rare disease is small. The vast majority of orphan diseases are genetic, and their cause can be addressed by compensating for the defective gene.
Methods applied to study these questions include comparative document analyses, quantitative descriptive and association studies and complex systems analyses.This is a full-time research position for 4 years. Besides that, you will also be involved in teaching activities within the division (approximately 10% of your time).You will work closely with a post- doctoral researcher for whom we are simultaneously recruiting.
