WORK EXPERIENCE

2010 - present Postdoc - University of Bonn, Steinmann-Institute for Geology, Mineralogy und Palaeontology.

01.03.2010 – 30.06.2011 - Staff funding by Polish Ministry of Science and High Education, third edition of program: Support for International Mobility of Scientist Research. Research program - Histology of skeletal elements of Temnospondyli, based on Metoposaurus diagnosticus krasiejowensis from the Triassic of Krasiejów (Opole Silesia, Poland) – analysis of growth dynamics.


 

2008 - present Senior researcher and lecturer - University of Opole, Department of Biosystematics, Poland
1996 - 2008 Teaching assistant - Department of Biosystematics, University of Opole, Poland

 

SUPERVISION OF GRADUATE STUDENTS

I have supervised numerous Bachelors and M.Sc. students from Poland and Germany, with topics connected to Temnospondyli, their taxonomy, biology and mainly paleohistology. I am also the co-supervisor of two Ph.D. students from Poland working on the paleohistology of Late Triassic animals for Krasiejów.
