Jobs Open positions in our lab

We are always seeking highly motivated new members for our research team!


1.) We are looking for a PhD student or Postdoctoral researcher in stem cell biology in the laboratory of Prof. Ana Martin-Villalba

The applicant will work together with the laboratory of Prof. Ana Martin-Villalba.

The position is part of the ERC consolidator grant REBUILDCNS, which aims at devicing strategies to awake the regeneration capacity of mammalian stem cells to repair the brain. The project combines generation of single cell omics data, lineage tracing and genome editing to interrogate the changes chromatin landscape necessary to increase brain regeneration. This analysis shall unravel fundamental questions of stem cell plasticity. The project requires close interactions with computational biologist and mathematicians, offering a unique opportunity to scientist interested in interdisciplinary work and lateral thinking.

The successful candidate should have:
  1. a degree in life sciences
  2. openness to immerse into big data analysis
  3. experience in two of the following fields: omics data, neurobiology, stem cell biology, genome editing
  4. experience with model organisms is desired, but not required
Highly motivated outstanding researchers curious about fundamental questions related to stem cell biology are welcome to apply. Postdoctoral candidates are expected to have a published record of achievements that would enable them to successfully apply for postdoctoral fellowships. Applicants should send a CV, letters of recommendation, and a short outline of their research interests to i.weirich@dkfz.de.
