Joining the lab

Currently there are opportunities to join our research group as a postdoctoral researcher or PhD student.

Applicants for post-doctoral positions

We are looking for candidates with a background in physics or mathematics, ideally with experience in theoretical soft matter physics or nonlinear dynamics. Experience or a strong interest to work with biological systems, in particular cell or developmental biology, is beneficial. An overview of possible research areas is given on the group homepage, but candidates will have the opportunity to develop their own ideas and will be encouraged to interact with experimental collaborators within EMBL and internationally. Please also take a look at the EMBL Interdisciplinary Postdocs (EIPOD) program.

For applications please contact Anna Erzberger by email and attach your CV and a brief motivation letter of your research interests.

Applicants for PhD positions

Students will have the opportunity to work on challenging interdisciplinary research projects in collaboration with experimental groups at EMBL and internationally. A background in physics, mathematics or a comparable field is required. Strong programming skills and an interest in cell or developmental biology is beneficial.

PhD applicants: Please apply through the EMBL International PhD Programme.

For all questions please contact Anna Erzberger by email.
