The Institute for Cardiovascular Physiology at the Medical Faculty of the University of Würzburg invites applications for a
Doctoral student (PhD position, f/m/d)
to study the microcirculatory actions of natriuretic peptides and cyclic GMP
We are seeking a highly motivated candidate in the field of cardiovascular biology and signal transduction particularly focusing on novel aspects of pericyte-endothelial cross-talk. The successful candidate will have well documented experience in the field of cardiovascular or cell biology, signal transduction and/or animal models of disease. Knowledge of the German language is an advantage allowing to join and mentor our courses of human physiology for medicine students.
Our institute is equipped with modern facilities and closely interacts with the Comprehensive Heart failure Center (DZHI Würzburg) in an international and team-oriented environment. The position is initially available for three years; prolongation is possible and is dependent on merit.
The University of Würzburg is an equal opportunities employer. Disabled persons with equivalent aptitude will be favoured. Payment will be made according to TV-L.
Applications should be submitted (as a single PDF file) to Professor Michaela Kuhn
The Institute for Cardiovascular Physiology (Director Prof. Michaela Kuhn) invites applications for a
DFG funded advanced post-doctoral position.
The position is well suited for candidates with substantial and demonstrated experience in cardiovascular biology, signal transduction and/or animal models of disease, who are interested to work on the microcirculatory actions and signal transduction of natriuretic peptides and cyclic GMP, particularly on novel aspects of pericyte-endothelial cross-talk.
We offer the opportunity to lead a small team of one doctoral candidate and a technical assistant to eventually develop an independent research agenda. For that purpose, special career development programs of the university (RAC) and the university hospital (IZKF) exist. It that context it is intended to prolong the initially available contract of three years, dependent on merit.
Our institute provides an international and team-oriented environment. It closely interacts with the Comprehensive Heart Failure Center (DZHI; www.ukw.de/behandlungszentren/dzhi) and it is part of one of the main research networks at the medical faculty concentrating on cardiovascular research (www.med.uni-wuerzburg.de/en/research). For insights into our research topics and methods spectrum, please check some of our recent publications:
We expect that the successful candidate will participate in teaching human physiology courses for medical students. Sufficient knowledge of the German language is required.
