We have two open positions for undergrad students (BSc thesis)!

Possible research topics can center around identifying genes involved in parasite-specific metabolic functions, inferring transposable element turnover along parasitic specialization, or contrasting the genetic diversity between reproducing parasite populations and their cryptic seed banks. 
For more details, drop by Susann’s office (Hüfferstr. 1, R103) or email us.

We have open positions for Master students in our group on the following topics:

  • Evolution of virulence and resistance
  • Functional analysis of parasite genes through host-induced gene silencing


Postdocs and PhD students who wish to work on various aspects of our research are welcome to contact Dr. Susann Wicke
