Our lab welcomes highly motivated students and PhDs to join our research efforts.


We encourage excellent PhDs that are considering pursuing an academic career to join our group. In particular, candidates with an aptitude in structural biology methods such as cryo-EM and X-ray crystallography combined with biochemistry expertise are encouraged to apply. They should consider applying for external funding sources such as EMBO, HFSP, or Marie Curie fellowships during their postdoctoral period at the Ernst-Ruska Centre.

In case you are interested in any of the option above please contact us for further details.

Master students

We will also consider applications from master students with education in the areas of molecular biology, biophysics and bioinformatics. We prefer to give longer-term internships from 6 months to 1 year. Please include your motivation and contact us for further details.
