PhD position in Molecular Biology at the Johannes Kepler Univ. (Linz)

The laboratory of Assoc. Prof. Tiemann-Boege at the department of Biophysics at the Johannes Kepler University, Linz is seeking to recruit new students interested in pursuing their PhD. Applications from young scientists interested in working with next generation technologies and new methods for DNA analysis are particularly welcomed. The position is available starting May 2022 for 3.5 years and will be paid according to the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) salary scheme.

The particular doctoral project will focus on examining repeat instability and involves construction of repeat cassettes, gene editing, next-generation sequencing, PCR, and bioinformatics. The work will be carried out within a larger consortium of nine researchers from the Vienna Biocenter, IST, and JKU using state-of-the art methodologies to address inter-connected questions in the field of meiosis.

Applications from independent and self-motivated young scientists interested in working with new methods for DNA analysis including are particularly welcomed. The successful candidate will have a strong background in genetics and molecular biology. Some background in evolutionary biology, population genetics, and bioinformatics would be ideal, but not required. The working language in the laboratory is English.

Applications should include in a single pdf file (1) a cover letter explaining why you would like to join our group and what your research interests are, (2) your Curriculum Vitae with a description of technical skills and a publication list, , and (3) contact details for 2-3 referees who are willing to write a reference letter. Please send the application  to the following e-mail address:

Starting date will be established upon mutual agreement.
