Spontaneous Applications from strong PhD/Postdoc candidates interested in our research themes and with appropriate skills profiles are always encouraged, regardless of open position lists.
A PhD position in Cell & Molecular Biology is available starting mid/late 2020. 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. A background in Biology, Biochemistry, or Pharmacy is required.
Positions open within the NanoCapture project from mid 2020:
- BTA/VTA (biology/veterinary technician) with substantial experience in mouse work
- biologist postdoc, ideally with experience in mouse work & tumour models
- experienced in vivo biologist postdoc/clinician scientist with strong prior experience in tumour 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.
