Open Positions

We belong to the Institute of Bioengineering at EPFL and are also part of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research (LICR) in Lausanne. While EPFL provides a world class environment for basic science and engineering, the LICR fosters translational applications of basic discoveries to cancer medicine at the highest level. Our laboratory benefits from this dual exciting environment and interdisciplinary approaches are essential to our research. We welcome highly motivated students and postdocs with computational and experimental backgrounds to continue fostering a very collaborative end enjoyable environment in the lab. We design projects so lab members can not only continue to develop their main skills but also learn novel techniques and acquire fundamental knowledge on membrane protein signaling and design.

On the computational side, we are looking for highly motivated and experienced scientists in the areas of computational biophysics, chemistry and biology with strong programming skills. Projects involve computational developments, protein modeling and design applications in collaborations with experimentalists as well as database mining and analysis. Computational experts who wish to also acquire wet lab skills are welcome to apply.

On the experimental side, we are looking for highly motivated and experienced scientists in the areas of protein engineering, biophysics, biochemistry, structures, protein-protein interactions and protein/cellular signaling with particular emphasis on membrane receptors. Projects involve protein modeling and design applications in collaborations with computational experts in the lab, directed evolution of receptor functions as well as investigations of native receptor systems. Experimentalists who wish to receive training in computational and quantitative approaches are welcome to apply.

If you are interested, feel free to email the lab directly with your CV, research interests, and the names and contact information of three professional references.

We are looking for highly motivated students with diverse computational and experimental backgrounds. Interested students are encouraged to apply to the lab via the EPFL’s Graduate Programs in Bioengineering, Chemistry, or Molecular Life Sciences depending on their training and areas of scientific interest. Feel free to email the Laboratory directly with your CV, grades, and research interests. We recommend contacting the lab in advance to discuss potential thesis projects.

We have always several opportunities for semester, Master’s and Bachelor Projects in the Laboratory. Please email the Laboratory directly with your CV, grades and research interests.
