PhD position (m/w/d) (KHS-25124)

Published by tlanger on

Universitätsklinikum Würzburg


Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of morbidity and mortality in Western societies. By applying cutting edge tools in cell phenotyping and transcriptomics, such as scRNA-seq, as well as genome editing, we focus on the contribution of immune cells and endothelial cells to cardiovascular biology, bridging immunology and cardiovascular pathology. A special interest lies on cell biology and the molecular signaling pathways driving atherogenic inflammation and remodeling after myocardial infarction. We also address the mechanisms underlying the increased cardiovascular risk of patients after allogenic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.


Successful candidates should have studied Biology, Biochemistry, Pharmacy or Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, Computational Biology, or a closely related area. Prerequisite is previous hands on experience with experimental mouse models and prior work in the field of inflammation, and cardiovascular research or in the development and application of bioinformatics tools for data visualization, biological network modeling and pathway mapping. Suitable candidates should be highly motivated with an intrinsic interest in research on molecular mechanisms underlying cardiovascular diseases.


Salary according to TV-L. We give priority to applicants with a disability and essentially equal qualifications.


Applicants should submit their complete application document (including CV, motivation letter, publication list and references) in a single PDF file to: zernecke_a@ until Sept 30, 2022.


Presentation costs cannot be refunded. Videoconference interviews are welcome for an initial interview.
