At EMBL from September 2022.

Open Positions

Joining the lab

Currently there are opportunities to join our research group as a laboratory officer, postdoctoral researcher, PhD student, or Master student.

Applicants for laboratory officer positions

Our group is currently looking for a laboratory officer to play a central role in the establishment of a new interdisciplinary research team, thereby getting exposed to cutting-edge research techniques and participating in numerous new and ongoing research projects with a team of international scientists. The candidate will be responsible for general lab management and organization, training of new lab members, as well as developing protocols and conducting experiments in the field of marine microbiology to make original, scientific contributions to research projects in the laboratory. The candidate should be a team player with excellent interpersonal and communication skills, as well as very good working knowledge in English. Read the full offer.

Applicants for post-doctoral positions

Post-doctoral positions are open for candidates that wish to explore unique opportunities at the interface between marine microbiology and developmental biology. The successful candidate is expected to take a strong lead on her/his project and start to develop / come up with independent ideas related to the lab’s interests. She/he should also serve as a mentor for students in the lab, and is expected to strongly contribute to a supportive and interdisciplinary lab culture.

For applications please contact Flora Vincent by email and attach your CV and a brief motivation letter of your research interests.

Applicants for PhD positions or Master students

PhD students are encouraged to develop and come up with their own project ideas to explore new avenues in the study of marine microbial interactions. They will have the opportunity to apply cutting-edge tools in high throughput single cell ecology, including but not limited to cell sorting, sequencing, imaging. In parallel, we will conduct regular sampling expeditions to explore marine microbes in their natural environment, coupled to larger scale projects such as the TREC expedition. Students are expected to drive a collaborative and inclusive team spirit, and should be motivated to work in a very interdisciplinary environment.

PhD applicants: Please apply through the EMBL International PhD Programme.

Master students: Please have a look at the pages for Visitors and Undergraduates and send your CV and a brief motivation letter to Flora Vincent directly.
