Vacancies

We have no vacancies for PhD students or postdocs at the moment.
If you are interested in joining the lab on your own funding (e.g. an Alexander von Humboldt fellowship or a MSCA fellowship), feel free to reach out. We are happy to discuss possibilities.

We are looking for two HiWi’s for winter semester 2021/2022.
One HiWi with lab experience to help on a project where we study the effect of secondary metabolites in tomato on pathogen resistance.
One HiWi with experience in basic genomics, to help extract specific data from larger data sets.

If you are interested, please contact us!

Theses and internships

We always looking for Msc and Bsc students interested in doing an internship or MSc thesis. The projects can be a mix of lab and computational work and can in many cases be customized to fit personal interests.

If you are interested or have questions about a specific project, send me a short informal email and we can arrange to discuss the possibilities.
