Summertime and New Beginnings in Our Lab

Summer brings a soothing calm that allows us to recharge our batteries and prepare for the challenges ahead. The lab will soon be quieter, giving us a chance to reflect on our past achievements and look forward to what lies ahead.

A wise mentor once told me that research goes in cycles, with everything being renewed every seven years. For us, however, this renewal is happening a bit faster. Almost 3.5 years after our start in Marburg, we are now facing a major change.

This year is particularly significant for us: our first PhD student, Hannah, is about to finish her dissertation. She has been with us from the very beginning, and we'd like to take this opportunity to thank her for helping us get started. Our first two Marburg Master's students, Antonia and Jasmin, are also completing their experiments. Our second PhD student, Juliane, is analyzing her data and writing her manuscripts for her cumulative thesis.

It is impressive what the team has accomplished over the past four years. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, we organized a move, rebuilt our lab, established collaborations, started and coordinated an EU project—and most importantly, we did great research. By the end of this month, we will have three scientific manuscripts presenting our work submitted to peer-reviewed journals, and a fourth is in preparation.

Unfortunately, tenure-track positions at the university are rare. Our team will therefore have to regroup at the end of the year. We look forward to welcoming new PhD and Master's students into our lab to continue the valuable work of Antonia, Jasmin, Juliane, and Hannah.

With this in mind, we would like to announce the first call for applications for a new PhD student position in our lab.

We are looking forward to receiving applications and are excited about the future research projects we will realize together.
