Control principles of animal body size

Open positions

Joining the lab

We’re a new lab actively looking for postdoctoral researchers, PhD students, and undergraduate students to join the team.

Applicants for postdoctoral researcher positions

We’re always searching for postdocs to spearhead new directions in the lab, and will actively support candidates in applying for funding to support their time with us. Candidates interested in working on interdisciplinary projects in collaboration with other EMBL groups should consider the excellent EIPOD-LinC Fellowship Programme. There are also many external fellowship opportunities to be explored together, e.g. EMBO, Marie Curie, HFSP.

Prior research experience in one or more of the following areas would be helpful, but is not required: biochemistry, functional genomics, single-cell genomics, evolution, theoretical physics, or mathematical modelling.

Still interested? Please contact Hanh by email and attach your CV and a brief motivation letter describing your reasons for considering our group and any ideas for potential projects.

Applicants for PhD student positions

Students interested in the opportunity to develop and employ interdisciplinary approaches to answer fundamental questions in developmental biology and evolution for their PhD are encouraged to apply to the EMBL International PhD Programme. Informal enquiries are always welcome, but please note that we can recruit only through the programme.

Applicants for undergraduate student positions

Bachelor’s or master’s students interested in getting an authentic research experience should take a look at the EMBL website pages for visitors and undergraduates, and should send their CV and a brief letter of motivation to Hanh directly.
