Fully Funded Postdoctoral or PhD Position (3 years) – Cardiovascular Development
A fully funded postdoctoral or PhD position (3 years) is available to study cardiovascular development in the zebrafish lab of Prof. Ferdinand le Noble, at the KIT, Germany. Start 1st of July.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious postdoctoral fellow to study the molecular bases of organo-typical vascular development and angiocrine signaling in normal development and during tissue regeneration. For this purpose, our lab uses genetic and molecular approaches in zebrafish model systems and organoids, substantiated by single cell and spatial transcriptomics approaches, and high-end imaging. We aim for translating our findings into therapies and diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases, including coronary artery disease, stroke, and heart failure.
We are a young, internationally renowned and dynamic team. Our research is based on the dedication and readiness of all team members to work independently and their passion for biomedical research. The scientific environment, facilities, resources, and support for this position are superb.
Interested applicants (F/M/D) should have a PhD or Master in molecular, cellular or systems biology, and less than 3 years' postdoctoral/PhD experience. Demonstrating previous experience working with animal model system and/or organoid systems; advanced imaging & image-based analyses is a plus. The appointment is available and will be for a period of 3 years (with possibility for extension). Salary according to TVDL guidelines.
