Ph.D. position on algal-bacterial interactions

The Sasso lab at Leipzig University in Germany offers a Ph.D. position starting from 1 September 2022. Activities and responsibilities: While microalgae are key contributors to global carbon fixation, their molecular interactions with other microbes in various ecosystems are poorly understood. In the framework of the Collaborative Research Centre ChemBioSys (, we have discovered that the … Continued

Postdoctoral position available in the Mittag lab, Friedrich Schiller University Jena

Scientific staff member (100% Postdoctoral position) Albeit microalgae are key contributors to global carbon fixation, their molecular interactions with other microbes in various ecosystems are still little known. In the framework of the CRC ChemBioSys (, we have investigated the interplay of the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii with other microorganisms and found that Pseudomonas protegens … Continued

Two postdoc positions available in the Jonikas lab

From Martin Jonikas: Dear colleagues, I hope you are well. I’m recruiting 2 postdocs on grant-funded positions to study the pyrenoid, a mysterious phase-separated organelle that mediates a third of global CO2 fixation and that we aim to engineer into crops to dramatically increase yields. We have spearheaded the molecular characterization of the pyrenoid, defined its … Continued
