Join us

There is a range of exciting opportunities to perform research in our lab, and we are interested in hearing from undergraduates, PhD students and postdocs who want to be part of our adventure. You can apply for a PhD through the institute’s PhD program but we will also entertain direct applications. We expect you have some lab experience, and that you can provide at least two letters of reference. For postdocs, you should have published (or are close to publishing) at one first-author paper in a major international journal. Please send your CV and a letter that outlines your research interests and why your qualifications make you a good fit for our Department. For those who wish to apply for their own funding to join the group, there are several opportunities (e.g. EMBO, Marie Curie). We are happy to identify potential funding sources, discuss projects, help writing grants and prepare eventual interviews.
