There is currently (Sep 2022) no funded opening.

I sometimes accept self-funded PhD students, if the research interests are sufficiently aligned. If you have an idea for a project (and a source of funding, such as DAAD or your national funding agency), let’s talk.

I also sometimes accept research interns (advanced Master’s students) for the summer. I have had interns that brought their own funding (RISE, DAAD), and have in exceptional cases also provided funding for interns recommended by other labs I have collaborated with.

Note: If you cold email me, tell me exactly where you see a connection between your idea and our research. Just mentioning a (random) paper title is not enough. If I don’t see an actual engagement with our work, I will have to ignore the email – I simply cannot answer all the unsolicited requests I get.
