Open positions at the staff researcher/postdoc and PhD level are available in the Erzberger group at EMBL Heidelberg. Our group uses various approaches from theoretical physics to understand the principles underlying biological organization in cells and multicellular systems. We are looking for candidates with a background in physics or mathematics with an interest in cell and developmental biology.

Of note, EMBL is a non-governmental research institution - consequently there is no complicated visa procedure and salaries & benefits are (way) above average.
