In the heart of Innsbruck is the Oroboros O2k-Laboratory with the newest O2k-MultiSensor Modules and the NextGen-O2k configuration available for mitochondrial and algal research, providing the basis of high-output in high-resolution PhotoRespirometry. This could be your new place of work as an Oroboros Postdoc specializing in mitochondrial and chloroplast bioenergetics, where you would join a scientifically oriented team. Innovations, reliability, and customer relations (scientist to scientist communication) are our top priorities.

Questions to ask yourself before applying:

  1. Is scientific and personal integrity of upmost importance to you?
  2. Do you feel confident preparing scientific manuscripts for peer-review and publication?
  3. Could you clearly explain what high-resolution respirometry and photosynthesis are to your neighbor?
