Join Us

We always welcome applications from highly motivated students and postdocs from diverse backgrounds such as computational biology, systems biology, genetics, biochemistry, and physics. If you share our excitement about studying transcriptional and post-transcriptional mechanisms of gene regulation at the molecular and systems level, in a physiological context, get in touch with us:

  • Postdocs: Please contact Helge directly. Include with your application a brief statement on specific aspects of our research that motivated your application and the type of project(s) that would excite you. Although we value proven expertise with the approaches and/or experimental systems that we use, it is not a requirement.
  • PhD Students: Please apply through the official FMI PhD program. Get in touch with Helge if you want to learn about current possibilities in the lab.
  • MSc Students: Please contact Helge directly and mention which of the research topics in the lab attracted your attention. Please note that because of Swiss immigration laws, we can only host MSc Students from Switzerland and the EU.
