Open positions

We currently have PostDoc and a PhD positions available. Please apply!

We are always interested in recruiting highly motivated and creative PostDocs and PhD students (also Bachelor and Master students are welcome) to study the fascinating molecular organization of biological membranes. Our lab takes an interdisciplinary approach to this topic, employing biophysical, biochemical and cell biological techniques. If you are interested in joining the group or have further questions do not hesitate to contact Michael Meinecke.
