Note

Places are limited (16 students) due to hand-on sessions. The selection (if necessary) will be made based on the scientific needs, expressed in a letter of intent (maximally 2000 characters) by the PhD student. It should contain a brief description of the project emphasizing the need of advanced light-microscopy methods.
