Job Opportunities




New Positions Will Become Available in 2012:

We will be looking for 1 Postdoctoral Researcher, 3 PhD Students, and a Technician starting in 2012.

The earliest starting date for these positions will be December 2012.

For further details please contact Thomas Flatt at:


In general, I encourage inquiries from well-trained and talented evolutionary and/or molecular biologists about the availability of internships, M.Sc., Ph.D. and postdoc positions in my group. New jobs are available irregularly, depending on external and internal funding. Please contact me ahead of time, i.e. 6-12 months before your intended arrival. If no current funding is available, I might encourage candidates to apply for their own fellowships in order to join the lab. When applying please send a cover letter stating your research interests and why you want to work with me, a detailed CV, publications (if any), and full contact details of at least two academic referees.
