Jonas was born in Frankfurt Main and studied biochemistry at the Goethe University Frankfurt. For his diploma thesis he joined the laboratory of Prof. Robert Ernst at the Buchmann Institute for Molecular Life Sciences and investigated the molecular mechanism of the yeast lipid saturation sensor Mga2. In a following project his focus went to the human lipid saturation machinery and possible regulators, utilizing in vitro and humanized-yeast based approaches. In January 2017, he then started his PhD in the Münch group analyzing the interplay of the mitochondrial unfolded protein response and mitochondrial quality control.
