We always welcome new applications of Postdoctoral Fellows and Master students. We invite applications of creative scientists with diverse backgrounds ranging from genetics and biochemistry to computational biology. Our Group maintains a supportive and collaborative culture. Applicants for the PhD need to apply to the EMBL International PhD Programme.

Applicants for postdoctoral positions

Postdoctoral Fellows wishing to develop their own research lines within the framework of our scientific objectives should send their CV and a cover letter describing their research interests to Matthieu Boulard.

Master students

We are currently accepting Master students. Two internship positions are available for periods of six months to one year in 2020, dates and duration are flexible.

The first student will participate to a research project focused on genome engineering of stem cells, chromatin biology and microscopy. The second student will contribute to the implementation of a high-throughput method for transcription factor motif discovery using bacterial genetics, molecular and synthetic biology. Both positions require a background in biology or related fields. If you are interested please email Matthieu Boulard.
