Johannes Jäger is a “natural philosopher”, originally trained as a Drosophila geneticist and modeller of biological regulatory networks. He was group leader at the CRG Barcelona, was a fellow of the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin, is the former director of the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research (KLI) in Klosterneuburg, Austria, and a guest lecturer in evolutionary system biology at the University of Vienna. He is also teaching philosophy for scientists at the Centre de Recherches Interdisciplinaires (CRI) in Paris.
Johannes’ research interests range from the function and evolution of complex regulatory systems, to novelty and innovation in both evolution and academic research. Open science advocate. Has a flair for projects that combine arts and science. Loves teaching and mentoring. Develops transdisciplinary workshops with unusual formats that focus on collaboration and sharing of information between researchers from different fields.
