Positions for HiWis, Bachelor, Master and Diplom students

Contact Prof. Pierik by email to make an appointment. Our lab features subjects ranging from bioinformatics, classic protein biochemistry, (yeast) genetics, spectroscopy of metalloproteins to organic synthesis of (isotopically labelled) substrates.


Hiring: Two PhD positions available

Students who have demonstrated by their Master or Diplom thesis that they are keen on research should send an application letter and a full curriculum vitae as PDF files by email.


Postdoc positions

At the moment there is no funding for postdoc positions. But excellent PhD students who wish to postdoc in my lab should send an application letter, full curriculum vitae (including publications) as PDF with a detailed description how we could arrange hiring by external funding.
