We are always interested to hear from highly motivated candidates with good communication and lab skills as well as enthusiasm for research in microbiology, infection biology and molecular biology.
Students participate in current topics of the lab. In general, they can choose from several open projects. Since our unit works with biological safety level 2 microorganisms, the students can aquire an additional qualification within their practical work in our labs. However, the students must work according to the BSL-2 safety regulations.
We ensure that within the practical work, that the students get the possibility to learn several techniques and work independently on their projects.
Frequently, the results contribute to publications in peer-reviewed journals. Thus, students have a shot on co-authorship. Students can also participate on international or national meetings to present their data.
Unfortunately, we have not the financial support to pay master students directly. However, each student gets the chance for employment as tutors in lab courses of the Institute.
Applicants should send their curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research interests, and the names and contact information of three references to:
Dr. Joachim Reidl or Dr. Stefan Schild
Institute of Mol. Biosciences – Microbiology
Please note: We will not reply to applications that appear to have been sent to multiple recipients (mass mail applications). When you apply, explicitly state why you want to work in our groups, what aspects your are most interested in, and how your capabilities can contribute to the progress of our research. In general, applicants on the PostDoc-level are expected to have their own fellowship or equivalent funding.
