PhD / Postdoc positions with own funding

If you have your own funding or are interested in applying for a fellowship to join our team, please contact Melike.

We are particularly interested in postdoctoral researchers who have established experience and knowledge in wetlab but are interested in collaborating with a computational lab to develop hybrid projects. There are a few highly prestigious fellowship opportunities for such placements that would require high knowledge transfer, like MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships (deadline: 11 September 2024), EMBO Postdoctoral Fellowships (next cutoff date: 12 July 2024), and HFSP LTF (LOI deadline 14 May 2024). Postdoctoral candidates from non-biological disciplines (e.g., mathematics, computer science, statistics) are welcome to consider HFSP CDF (LOI deadline 14 May 2024).

While most of these fellowships require mobility, there are multiple other fellowship options available in Germany, and we are happy to explore different options.

If you are excited about the possibility of running an exciting project at the intersection of aging, microbiome, and computational biology, and have some ideas, please get in touch. Please include your CV, cover letter, names and contact information of 3 references, Google Scholar link, and a brief description of the project area and why you think our group is a good environment to perform this research.
