I am very happy to announce that our lab will soon move to the University of to join the Centre for Organismal Studies (COS)


We will build up a new department on Evolutionary Neurobiology with a focus on marine larval behaviour, comparative , molecular organismal biology, and related topics.

We am very excited to move to COS and join its vibrant community. We have a shared interest in the study of organismal biology across the boundaries of biological levels of organization.

There will be new and openings, if you are interested to work with us, please get in touch. Possible topics include neurobiology, eye , , the behaviour of ciliated etc. You can work on a growing selection of organisms kept in the lab, including Platynereis (still our no. 1), , or join more exotic projects investigating hard-to-culture marine animals including polyclads, hemichordates or amphioxus.

Alternatively, if you have experience in electron microscopy or image analysis and are interested in volume EM, you can join our projects either to do EM or work on the data analysis side of volume EM and connectomics projects

@jekely this is great news! I’m happy to hear this! Good luck… and… have fun!!! 👍

@florianjug Thanks Florian! We are happy about it, and hopefully we will enjoy the new life HD can offer!

@jekely congratulations!, very interested in #postdoc openings exploring funkier annelid larvae 😎

@allan_littlecar Thanks Allan! Not much on funky annelids at the moment, but happy to discuss!

@jekely this is nightmare fuel

H.R. Giger has nothing on evolution

@jekely Congrats! Great to have you back in Heidelberg :-)

@jekely OMG, *that* organism! not orgasm studies. Sorry.

@yaksi_emre Thanks Emre! Indeed, COS is a great and very fitting place for us!

@jekely wow!! The Neurobiology Meca moves to Germany 😉 Congrats.

@jekely Great news, congratulations, it will be fun to see what you and your group do next. Heidelberg is a lovely city as well!

@davi Thank you Davi! We hope to be able to build some new research lines and collaborations in beautiful Heidelberg! An amazing place for science.

@jekely What a loss for UK science Gaspar but what a win for Germany! Sounds like an amazing opportunity- looking forward to hearing more at Il Ciocco!

@Mill_lab we will of course keep our many connections to UK science!
