Opportunities for doctoral candidates, postdocs and project leaders

We are continously seeking new members for our teams and thus motivate talented students and researchers to actively apply for a position with the different group leaders.
Please be specific about your desired research area in your application, we cannot answer unspecific ones.

Id you are looking for a PhD student position, please note that the Faculty of Biology is successfully running the graduate school "Life Science Munich (LSM)" for which applications must be send in prior to certain deadlines announced on the LSM web-site and will be considered after the deadlines of the announced calls. However, in exceptionally qualified cases, we also consider individual direct applications for doctoral projects. Please note that in any case you must hold the necessary formal qualifications for a doctoral studentship at a German university and have relevant practical lab experience.

For postdocs, we expect that you have published (or are close to publishing) at least one first-author paper in a major international journal. Please provide a brief synopsis on the projects you conduct and on topics of our lab that you are particularly interested in. Please also state why you think that you will match the requirements of the individual teams.

For direct applications
- include a 1 A4 page long motivation letter for the advertised position. This should focus on why you want to perform the advertised project. Please avoid general statements like "LMU is a good university" or "I want to improve my skills".
- explain on a separate page what makes you specifically qualified for the advertised position.
(If both are not included, it is very likely that you will receive no reply) 
Ideally you include all the documents required for a complete application at the LSM.

Current opportunies can be found on the webpages of the individual research teams here
