Open positions - Have a look

We are always looking for highly motivated outstanding people to join our team. All interested should be curious about fundamental biological questions related to nuclear organization or cell division, and be fascinated by molecular cell biology, the latest imaging technologies, or computational biology.


Speculative applications of researchers from all disciplines with a recently completed PhD or who are about to finish their PhD are welcomed. Candidates are expected to have a published record of achievements that would enable them to succesfully apply for postdoctoral fellowships and should send a CV, contacts for references or directly letters of recommendation, and a short outline of their research interests to Stephanie Alexander.


At EMBL you cannot apply directly to individual labs for a PhD position. All students have to apply to the EMBL International PhD Programme (EIPP) to be selected. For details about EIPP, please visit the EIPP website. If you are however specifically interested in us, let us know anyways.


MSc or advanced BSc students are always welcome to apply for short projects, the minimum duration is however 6 months due to the advanced technologies we employ in our research, which require a significant training period. Please send a short motivation letter, a CV including grades and a list of courses taken, and a reference from at least one university advisor (researcher preferred) to Stephanie Alexander.
