12 Re­search As­sist­ant Op­por­tun­it­ies - Uni­versity of Kas­sel

The University of Kassel establishes the interdisciplinary Research Training Group (RTG) “Biological Clocks on Multiple Time Scales”, which is funded by the German Research foundation from April 2022 on. The RTG aims at investigating the principles of timekeeping in living organisms, enabling to orchestrate periodic processes with very different frequencies ranging from infradian over circadian to ultradian rhythms. The unique approach is to combine the expertise of biologists, physicists, chemists, mathematicians, and engineers to advance the understanding of biological clocks.


In the first phase, the RTG seeks to fill the positions of:

12 Research Assistants (PhD positions; m/f/d) 

- starting from April 1, 2022, or soon thereafter.


Descriptions of the 12 specific research projects of this phase can be found at:

We encourage applications of candidates with dedicated interest in any of the projects, and with background in (bio-)physics, (bio-)chemistry, system and control theory, mathematics, neurochemical biology, neurobiology, molecular biology, or related disciplines. Applicants should specify in their application a first (and possibly a second) choice of individual research project according to interest and qualification by including the “Extra Application Form” found at:

The candidates are expected to work towards their PhD degree.
