Tenure-Track Assistant Professorship in Molecular Biology
The Max Perutz Labs are looking for a tenure track junior group leader with outstanding potential to establish an independent and internationally competitive research group in the field of Molecular Biology. The mission of the Max Perutz Labs is to analyze and reconstitute complex biological processes from atomic to tissue and organismal scales.
The Leonard and Querques labs are jointly looking for a Research Technician to support research activities and carry out lab administration tasks as a member of both research teams.

Joint Master's Thesis
“Why do chloroplasts recruit RNA processing factors to deal with protein quality control?”
Richard Feynman asked physicists to build better microscopes to watch biology at work. Our Quantum Imaging and Biophysics group works at the interface of microscopy, quantum physics, and electron optics to develop new imaging techniques that offer increased sensitivity and resolution. We are looking for a talented postdoc to help realize Optical Near-field Electron Microscopy (ONEM, Marchand et al. Phys. Rev. Applied 16, 014008 (2021)).
The goal of the Master’s project will be to determine the structure of PHLPP2 to high resolution by cryo electron microscopy (already very well advanced) and characterize its phosphatase activity and substrate specificity in vitro. The project will involve recombinant protein purification, inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) in collaboration with the Institute of Analytical Chemistry at BOKU, and quantitative biophysical and biochemical assays.
Master Student Position
We are an internationally competitive, innovative and creative research group investigating fundamental cellular mechanisms in the regulation of gene expression and RNA metabolism by combining genome-wide experiments with cutting edge genetic-, molecular- and biochemical assays. We are looking for a highly motivated and dedicated master student to work on a project aiming to systematically dissect RNA exosome, a key player involved in RNA processing and degradation in the mammalian system.
