Career Openings

There are numerous opportunities to join our team and help build our strong and productive group at the CMMC. If you share our fascination for biology and bring a good dose of positivity, motivation and perseverance, you are in the right place with us!


We generally have capacity for lab rotations, Bachelors and Masters thesis work - we are strongly dedicated to teaching and mentorship. A genuine interest in biochemical mechanisms and protein structure, independence and an exceptional degree of motivation is a must. If you’re interested, please send a statement of your scientific motivation and interests, transcript of records and, if possible contact information for scientific reference to spoepsel[at]

PhD students 

We just recently closed our recruitment of new PhD students. Unfortunately, there are no capacities for new PhD students at the moment.


We always welcome applications of highly motivated postdoc candidates with a strong background and track record in structural biology and/or biochemistry. Currently, postdoctoral candidates will have to arrange external funding, which we are happy to provide support for if needed. Please contact spoepsel[at] if you are interested.
