The Pharmaceutical Biology Group (Head Prof. Robin Teufel) within the Department is searching for a PhD student with interest and ideally experience in natural product research.

As a PhD student, you will be involved in cooperative projects aiming at the discovery of new natural product lead compounds from plant and fungal extracts.

The candidate will join a dynamic multidisciplinary research group of pharmacists, chemists and biologists working on the isolation / characterization of natural products and the underlying biosynthesis in one of the world's hubs for pharmaceutical research. Enjoy the vibrant scientific community at the University of Basel with great possibilities for internal and external collaborations as well as state-of-the-art instrumentation and infrastructure both in-house and close-by. As part of our team, you will receive supportive mentoring, a generous salary and enjoy the high quality of live in Switzerland during your PhD thesis.
