Postdoc position

Starting in 2017, we offer a postdoctoral research position in the group Statistical Physics and Quantitative Biology (PI Michael Lässig) at the Institute of Theoretical Physics, University of Cologne (Germany). This is an opportunity for an exceptionally qualified physicist to work on evolution.

University of Cologne is a leading research institution in experimental and theoretical studies of evolutionary processes. It offers an exciting interdisciplinary research environment at the interface between physics and quantitative biology. Cologne is a large German city that has a wide range of recreational, cultural, and educational opportunities.

Applications and enquiries should be directed to Christa Stitz (cstitz@uni-koeln.de). Applications should include a CV, a list of publications, and a substantial research statement outlining how your research interests are linked to our lab. Two letters of recommendation should be sent independently to the same address. The call is open until the position is filled; preferential consideration will be given to applications received before February 1st, 2018. The University of Cologne is an equal opportunity employer.

 
PhD research assistantships
You should have a strong background in statistical physics and a genuine interest in biology. Your application should contain a summary of past research and a statement of research interests. Please explain the expected overlap of your interests with our group's work.
Your application and two letters of recommendation should be mailed independently to cstitz@uni-koeln.de. Applicants from the Bachelor level on are encouraged to apply in parallel to the Bonn-Cologne Graduate School of Physics and Astronomy (BCGS). As part of its graduate curriculum, BCGS offers a new program in statistical physics, biophysics, and quantitative biology that leads to cutting-edge research in these areas. The call is open until the position is filled; preferential consideration will be given to applications received before February 14, 2016.
 
Master theses and student assistantships
Applications are welcome on a continuous basis.
You should have successfully completed a course in statistical physics (German TP IV or equivalent) and have a genuine interest in biology. Summer projects are also available. Your application should contain a transcript of courses and a statement of research interests. Please explain your specific motivation for applying to our group.
Your application and one letter of recommendation should be mailed independently to cstitz@uni-koeln.de.
