Susanne Illenberger has been teaching biochemistry and cell biology at the School of Engineering and Science at Jacobs University Bremen since 2007. She completed her studies of biology at the University of Hannover, Germany in 1992. From 1993-1996, she continued as a PhD in biology in Hamburg, followed by an occupation as a postdoctoral fellow at the Max-Planck-Unit for Structural Molecular Biology at DESY, Hamburg. Between 1998 and 2003, she worked as a scientific assistant at Technical University of Braunschweig, where she received her habilitation and a teaching permission in cell biology and was a private lecturer until 2007.
