Positions Open

Application instructions on a separate page. Spontaneous applications from strong PhD/Postdoc candidates interested in our research themes and with appropriate skills profiles are always encouraged.

Cell & Molecular Biology PhD Position

A PhD position in Cell & Molecular Biology is available starting mid 2021. One topic is research around DNA-interacting compounds with novel features and possibilities (including photoswitchable inhibitors of topoisomerases, triggered DNA alkylators, and classical pharmaceutical chemistry); another topic continues our cytoskeleton research and brings in genetic engineering towards chemical/synthetic switchable proteins, combined with imaging. An MSc in Biology (or Biochemistry / Pharmacy) is required.

Biology Postdoc and TA Positions

Positions open within the NanoCapture project from spring 2021:
- BTA (biology technician) with experience in cell culture and/or mouse work
- cell / in vivo biology postdoc, ideally with experience related to cancer biology

Chemistry Positions

We cannot take synthetic chemistry MSc/PhD/postdocs until 2022: our chem labs are fully occupied.

Internships (BSc, Forschungspraktika, and MSc in Pharmacy, Chemistry and Biology)

    As an interface group, we welcome spontaneous applications from students of Pharmacy, Chemistry, and Biology. Students are exposed to a wide range of skills within their field and beyond it, and are assigned to their own sub-projects to perform frontier research. Students with an independent mindset who enjoy the opportunity to explore techniques and concepts beyond their studies will find an exciting environment here, where they can learn new skills in microscopy, cell biology, biochemistry, organic synthesis, photochemistry, electronics, and pharmacology.
    Each year we have a scholarship for an International Student with an excellent track record, wishing to perform a 6-month research stay (Masters thesis, PhD exchange) in the group. Applications can be submitted in February.
