Chromosomes provide the scaffold for the maintenance, regulation and propagation of genetic information. Recent experimental findings have shown that eukaryotic chromosomes are folded in three-dimensional space and that the three-dimensional folding of chromosomes is directly linked to gene regulation.

The Stigler lab uses biochemical and biophysical single molecule techniques, such as optical tweezers and fluorescence microscopy by DNA curtains to determine the processes that lead to the three-dimensional folding of chromosomes. We are looking for a

motivated young scientist (m/f/d)

with a background in biochemistry, biophysics or related fields to help us address questions of how SMC complexes and loading/unloading mediators orchestrate the formation of topological compartments on chromatin.


You are expected to have a solid understanding of relevant techniques in molecular biology and experience with the purification of recombinant proteins. Prior experience with single molecule techniques or programming skills are a plus.


Please send your application (including CV, a letter of motivation, relevant certificates and contact information for two references) to
