The Schuller lab is a small team with ambitious projects, your contribution will be essential. I like to express it the way polar explorer Sir Ernst Shackleton expressed it in 1913 when he recruited members for his legendary polar expedition to Antarctica:

Scientist “wanted for dangerous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, months of total darkness, constant danger. Safe return home doubtful. Honor and glory in case of success."

If you are not deterred and are still interested, you are welcome to contact me. Applications are welcome at any time.

We currently have openings for Bachelor- and Masterprojects in our lab!

SYNMIKRO Young Researchers Groups

Almost all scientific members of SYNMIKRO are actively involved in DFG’s Collaborative Research Centers (Sonderforschungsbereiche), Research Training Groups (Graduiertenkollegs), or other Cooperative Research projects. Alongside performing adventurous experiments, and reporting excellent science, SYNMIKRO substantially promotes potential Young Research Group Leaders by constantly keeping its doors open to welcome and support Young Researchers planning to set up an Independent Research Group.
