University Medical Center Göttingen
Universitätsmedizin Göttingen
The International Research Training Group 1816 "Phosphorylation- and redoxmediated signaling mechanisms in the failing heart" currently offers a
PhD student position
Applicants should hold a Diploma, Master’s, or a Medical degree.

Prospective 3-year Ph.D. project , part-time (65 %) | salary according to TV-L
The University Medical Center Göttingen is a tertiary care center and offers great development potential. Its 7,400 employees work in over 65 departments and facilities to provide top-quality patient care, excellent research and modern teaching. Göttingen, “City of Science”, lies near the center of Germany, the University Medical Center Göttingen is embedded in the city’s attractive network of scientific research facilities.

The prospective 3-year Ph.D. project "Redox regulation of ryanodine receptor/Ca2+ release channels by Nox enzymes in hypertrophy and heart failure” aims to investigate molecular redox mechanisms, which contribute to cellular calcium regulation, mitochondrial dysfunction, cardiac arrhythmias and heart failure. State-of-the-art approaches using rapid calcium-sensitive dye imaging, FRET, epifluorescence, and confocal microscopy are combined with patch-clamp electrophysiology. Previously established murine pathology and biosensor models will be applied to study cellular and complementary biochemical processes.

Students will conduct a part of their project in the partnering laboratory in London and may obtain a joint doctoral degree from both institutions (eligibility criteria apply).

Applicants should hold a Diploma, Master’s, or a Medical degree.
