Joining the lab

Applicants for postdoctoral positions

Currently, we welcome postdocs willing to apply together with our lab for their own funding. Possible projects include, but are not restricted to, fundamental or applied research on RNA modification enzymes or projects combining protein-RNA biochemistry and large complex cryo-EM with parasitology. The working language in the lab is English; knowledge of French is not required.

To inquire about a postdoctoral position, send a CV, an outline of interests, and details of at least two referees directly to Eva Kowalinski. For tips on preparing your application, watch this video. Please also consider applying for an interdisciplinary EMBL EIPOD fellowship or other fellowships in the Kowalinski lab. Please get in touch 6-12 months ahead of your desired starting date. Due to time management, generic inquiries cannot be answered.

Applicants for PhD student positions

The Kowalinski lab is currently looking to recruit one PhD student with a prospective start date in 2024 on an exciting biochemistry/cryo-EM project. The successful candidates will join the prestigious EMBL Internatinal PhD programme (EIPP). If you are interested in joining the Kowalinski lab, please get in touch with Eva Kowalinski well ahead of time to discuss possible project directions. Please describe your specific motivation to join the lab.

Applicants for Master or Internship positions

We are on the lookout for a Master’s student to join us as soon as possible in 2023 or the beginning of 2024 on different projects involving protein purification, crystallisation, crystallographic fragment screening, eukaryotic parasite biology or cryo-EM. A project period of 6-12 months should be envisaged. Please familiarise yourself with our past and current research and send a CV and a motivation letter indicating why you are the best person to join our lab and why our lab is so interesting for you! Due to time management, generic, unspecific requests will not receive a reply.
