Currently available positions

The Department of Experimental Physics I at the University of Bayreuth, Germany invites applications for a

PhD student position

in the area of Biological Physics / Biophysics with a particular focus on quantifying non-equilibrium phenomena (pattern formation, self-organization, and fluctuations) in culture cells and in-vitro assays by means of advanced light microscopy techniques.

The lab’s research is focused on elucidating physicochemical principles of life, e.g. dynamic self-organization processes in living matter, using advanced light microscopy methods, microfluidics, and computational approaches as main tools (see also here for details).

Candidates should have a strong interest in interdisciplinary work, which is supported on-site by an interdisciplinary PhD program (BayNAT) and the Elite Study Program on Biological Physics. A Masters/Diploma degree in Physics, Biophysics, Physical Chemistry, or Cell/Molecular Biology (with additional qualifications in Physics) is expected. The salary level complies with the union rates for public sector employees.

Applications from handicapped persons will be favored when all other qualifications are equal. The University of Bayreuth is an equal opportunity employer and we therefore especially encourage women to apply.

Please send inquiries and meaningful applications (CV and a brief motivation letter) at the earliest convenience to:
