Scientific Staff

Our research group uses models of cardiovascualr biology and disease to understand molecular mechanisms of heart failure and arrhythmias. We employ a wide range of research techniques from molecular biology to functional cardiac assessment and quantification of biological molecules in patient samples, including hypothesis-driven and broad bioinformatics approaches.

  • Functional assessment of cardiac tissue and cells, e.g. using electrophysiology, optical mapping, and patch clamping
  • molecular and cell biological methods in human tissue and in relevant disease models, histology and advanced imaging methods
  • Research involving genetically modified mice and stem-cell derived cardiac cells and tissue
  • Active involvement in the build-up of our research group
  • supervision by experienced research leaders
  • team science with local and international collaborators

Darauf freuen wir uns

  • a university degree, e.g. in life sciences, medicine or veterinary medicine, biology, human biology, physics, chemistry or a combined degree in the sciences, ideally with a PhD or a Masters degree
  • Ideally prior expertise in animal resaerch including a FELASA certificate, expertise in molecular or cellular biology methods
  • Knowledge of the English language and of MS Office
  • a passion for science and team science, flexibility, responsibility and initiative
