We want you!

You are equally fascinated by venomous and poisonous animals? You want to study their toxin cocktails, understand their function and eventually turn their weapons into valuable goods for humanity? Then consider to join my lab! As a research group within LOEWE TBG, we always seek to recruit motivated and bright minds to our team. You can either apply for one of the vacant positions below or get in touch with me if you want to start an independent toxinology project within my lab. I am always open to potential projects and finding ways to get them funded.


Postdoc Positions:
PhD Positions:
   None (but grants are under review, so keep an eye on this spot!)
M.Sc. Projects:
   Several masters projects in the area of venom biotechnology  available.
B.Sc. Projects:
   Some bachelors projects on antimicrobial venom peptides and insecticides are available.
