    • Complete publication list
    • Separate reprints of 3 particularly relevant papers

    About Research project

    The position is co-funded between the DFF Research Leader grant “How self-organization promotes antibiotic resistance in 3D bacterial communities” and the Inge Lehmann grant “How biofilm organization affects horizontal gene transfer within bacterial communities”.

    About the Department

    The Experimental Biophysics Lab includes experts in biofotonics, force-transduction and microscopists and is equipped with a variety of instruments for imaging, e.g., super-resolution, light-sheet, and confocal microscopy, as well as force-spectroscopy and microbiology labs.

    The Center for Models of Life consists of researchers that use methods from physics to develop an understanding of living systems, from modelling of gene regulation to dynamics of self-organization.


    • After the expiry of the deadline for applications, the authorized recruitment manager selects applicants for assessment on the advice of the Interview Committee.
    • Inquiries about the position can be made to Jan Westenkær Thomsen.
