I am looking for a PostDoc with experience in one/several methods related to chemical ecology such as gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, electrophysiology, HPLC; skills in genome data analysis are welcome, too.

The tasks of the job are to pursue and develop an own/collaborative research program in chemical ecology and to organize and maintain the chemical ecology lab in my group; some teaching may also be done but is not compulsory. The duration of the employment will be for three years with possible prolongation.

 I offer a vibrant, collaborative work environment and a competitive salary; earliest starting date is 1st May 2023. Our department is located in the University Botanical Gardens and houses modern molecular and ecological labs, including greenhouses and climate chambers for plant cultivation.
