We are always looking for ambitious students and postdocs to join our multidisciplinary and highly collaborative lab.


Our work combines experimental biology (high-throughput sequencing, epigenetics, CRISPR screening, synthetic biology) with computational methods (bioinformatics, machine learning, artificial intelligence), in the areas of cancer, immunology, and precision medicine. Most lab members have a background in wet-lab biology, in bioinformatics or data science, in medicine, or in a combination of these fields. We are very much open to unusual approaches if there is evidence of academic excellence.

Postdocs: Candidates for postdoc positions should apply to the Pre-ERC Postdoc Program at CeMM and/or contact Christoph Bock by e-mail with a CV and a short description of their research interests or project ideas.

PhD students: Candidates for PhD positions should apply to the PhD Program at CeMM. The application deadline is typically in January, and successful candidates can start between June and October (flexible).

Master students: Candidates for a Master's thesis or an undergraduate research fellowship should contact Christoph Bock by e-mail with a motivation letter, CV, and relevant certificates / transcripts. The standards are very high, and a minimum time commitment of 8-12 months is expected to allow for an ambitious research project.


Other positions: Candidates for other positions (e.g., research technician or project scientist) can either apply to specific job postings on the CeMM career website or contact Christoph Bock by e-mail with a motivation letter describing their interests / ambitions, CV, and relevant certificates / transcripts.
