Postdoctoral Scientist (f/m) in Heart Failure Research
Deutsches Herzzentrum Berlin (DHZB)
The German Center for Cardiovascular Research (DZHK) researches new diagnostic procedures and therapies and the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
In a DZHK-funded project the Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery of the German Heart Center Berlin (DZHK-Professor Dr. med. C. Knosalla) is seeking to appoint a
Postdoctoral scientist in heart failure research
for a translational cooperative project with the Institute of Physiology of the Charité - Universitätsmedizin (head: Prof. Dr. med. W.M. Kübler).
We are a committed, interdisciplinary working group with international connections and are looking for a highly motivated and experienced team worker

to test newly identified therapeutic targets. This will involve the biomechanical, molecular biological and immunohistological examination of
human tissue samples in consideration of the individual patient data, mechanistic examinations of mechanosensitive signal pathways in vascular
smooth muscle cells, endothelial cells and fibroblasts, and the exploration of therapeutic interventions in suitable preclinical animal models.
