We are currently looking for PhD candidates and postdoctoral fellows to join our team!

For PhD positions starting in autumn, please see:

For postdoctoral positions, please see below.


We are interested in hiring clever, driven and motivated people to help us solve fundamental challenges in gene and genome regulation. Prior computational experience in not strictly necessary.

Our lab is mixed computational-experimental and we run projects that range from being purely computational to heavily involved with experiments, either running these ourselves or through interactions with collaborators.

We are always interested in hearing from highly motivated and enthusiastic postdoctoral candidates to join our group. If you are interested, please contact Juanma Vaquerizas ( to discuss the different options currently available.

If you are interested in joining the lab as a PhD student, we usually recruit through our International Max Planck Research School (CiM-IMPRS). Please refer to the CiM-IMPRS pages to find out more about deadlines and the application procedure. The next round applications will open around mid-Feb 2017.

To discuss the options for internships at the lab, please send your CV directly to Juanma Vaquerizas ( including the names and contact details of two referees and a short description of why you are interested in joining the lab.
