If you are interested in doing paid research with the lab  there are two options:
- Wait for an open position in the lab and apply.
- Find self-funding and ask if we can host and work with you.
All paid positions associated with the lab will be posted to the TU Delft vacancies website, the BioMechanical Engineering Department vacancies web page, Academic Transfer , and/or this lab website.
|||PhD positions at TU Delft are considered full time academic research jobs and we only accept you if there is an available paid position. You are also required to have a Master's degree to start a PhD.|
|||All academic jobs in the Netherlands are (and have to be) posted to Academic Transfer.|
Anyone may apply to the Master's Program at TU Delft if you have completed an appropriate Bachelor's degree. If you want to work directly in this lab it is best to apply to the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering and preferably select the BioMechanical Design Track. This video explains the MSc tracks in the BME department.
If you would like to work on a project for your Master's thesis in the lab please send a letter explaining your interest in the lab and/or project, CV or resume, a list of courses you've taken, the name of your MSc track, and any other relevant information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include whether you are a current student, have been accepted to the University, or have not applied yet.
The following list provides the current formal MSc projects we are interested in finding students for :

The current and past research projects will also give some ideas of what is possible. I will provide any confidential projects available in personal communication with you. If any of these projects interest you or you have a project idea that is similar, be sure to let me know in your introduction email.
|||We also post and formulate more raw project ideas here: https://github.com/mechmotum/ideas/issues.|
Students working towards their Bachelor's degree are welcome to join the lab to get research and engineering experience. The best way to work with us it to choose a Bachelor's final project proposed from the lab in your final year. Otherwise, please send a letter explaining your interest in the lab, CV or resume, and any other relevant information to email@example.com.
