You benefit from 59 clinics and institutes as well as numerous other departments and facilities and more than 10,000 jobs. The Faculty of Medicine of the University of Cologne and the University Hospital Cologne assume important social tasks in research, teaching and patient care. A close network with many university and non-university partners guarantees an internationally successful science and the excellent education of our students.

» Your future in detail

CECAD is an inclusive, equal opportunity employer that offers attractive conditions and benefits commensurate with an international research organisation with a very collegial and family-friendly work environment.

The Stangherlin lab is a newly established research group at CECAD research centre in Cologne. Our group is interested in cellular circadian rhythms, pervasive biological oscillations that manifest themselves with a period of 24 hours. In particular, we are interested in understanding how ion abundance and signalling change during the day, at cellular and subcellular resolution, and how this is affected by the ageing process. Besides various cell biology and biochemical techniques, we capitalise on an emerging technology based on atomic emission spectrometry to analyse changes in ion abundance during the circadian cycle (ionomics).
