  1. Lab technician at DLR in aerospace microbiology group
    Interested candidates could send their application to Ralf Moeller.

    A 18 months postdoctoral position is available at the University of Avignon. The project, funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR), relies on a collaboration between R. Plasson from UMR 408 Avignon Université-INRA (Avignon) with expertise in theoretical and numerical tools for dynamical chemical systems, G. Baffou from the Fresnel Institute (Marseille) with expertise in light-actuated phenomena in physics, chemistry and biology at the nano/micro scale, and L. Jullien, T. Le Saux from the group «Physical and Biological Chemistry of Living Matter» of the PASTEUR Laboratory at Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris) with expertise in chemical thermo-kinetics, photophysics/photochemistry, and systems chemistry in microdevices.
    The overall goal of this theoretical project is to evaluate the relevance of gradients of control parameters of chemical reactivity (temperature, light) to sustain dynamic chemical systems, namely for driving (i) the distribution of sequence and length of polymers arising from polycondensation of monomers engaged in ligation/hydrolysis reactions; and (ii) the magnitude and direction of heat fluxes in novel reactive materials. In particular, we will address the energy-intensive capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) and optimize its energetic efficiency by transferring solar energy in the energy balance of CO2 capture. The project will consist in carrying out numerical simulations using XMDS to solve a rich set of coupled partial differential equations involving molecular diffusion, thermal diffusion and photochemistry in a liquid environment.

    Starting date is flexible from November 2021. Net salary: 2500 Euro/month.

    Candidates should hold a PhD in (bio)physical chemistry with emphasis on dynamical systems (upon including thermal aspects) with expertise on analytic calculations and numerical computations. To apply, please send a detailed resume including list of publications, the names of at least two referees and a brief motivation letter to the scientific coordinators of the project, Dr. Raphaël Plasson (, Dr. Guillaume Baffou (, and Prof. Ludovic Jullien (

  3. Junior Professorship for Microbiology in the field of molecular physiology of prokaryotes
    The University of Freiburg invites applications for the
    Junior Professorship for Microbiology in the field of molecular physiology of prokaryotes
    at the Faculty of Biology in the Department of Biology II to be filled by April 2022.

    This is a grade W1-professorship to which performance payments can be offered. This professorship is suitable for highly qualified early career researchers at an early stage in their careers. Conditions governing the appointment in accordance with section 51 (3) LHG apply.

    We seek for candidates with an outstanding research record on a topic in the field of physiology of prokaryotes such as metabolism, cellular functions, regulation, interaction with the environment or with other organisms. The candidate should use molecular approaches for research on a current research topic. The profile of the candidate should allow for interactions with research groups of related topics in the faculties of Biology, Pharmacy and Chemistry and/or Medicine. A fit into current and planned interfaculty collaborative initiatives such as graduate schools, collaborative research centers or cluster of excellence is expected. Prerequisites for the employment are a university degree, an outstanding dissertation and an excellent publication record. This position is a fixed term of four years. After a successful interim evaluation, it will be extended by two years.

    We are particularly pleased to receive applications from women for the position advertised here.

    The following application documents are to be submitted:
    • Curriculum vitae
    • Certificates of degrees and academic qualifications
    • Complete list of papers and talks with specification of the 5 most important publications
    • A short overview on the current and planned research program
    • List of current and previous projects including the financial support received
    Please send your application including supporting documents mentioned above and the application form ( citing the reference number 01856, by 15.12.2021 at the latest.

    Please send your application to the Dean of the Faculty of Biology, Schänzlestr. 1, D-79104 Freiburg. Via e-mail:
