The Department of Cardiology and Angiology offers two positions for a Postdoctoral Scientist:

Ref.: 4474

Description: Our research group on Molecular and Vascular Cardiology (Head: J. Waltenberger) is moving from Maastricht, the Netherlands, to Münster in Germany. We will be embedded in the Department of Cardiology/Angiology at the University of Münster. We study the role of growth factors in vascular regeneration and the mechanisms of related signal transduction defects leading to growth factor resistance (e.g. impaired chemotaxis) in pathological situations.

Your profile: The two successful candidates will have sound conceptual training in the field of vascular biology and/or signal transduction.
Solid hands-on experience in cell and molecular biology will be essential. Experience in in-vivo methodology either in genetic mouse models or in models of ischemia are desirable. The candidates hold a PhD or MD/PhD or equivalent degree and is able to pursue independent research. Although the initial appointment will be for a two year postdoctoral period, the positions can be prolonged and have career development potential with tenure track extension. Thus, candidates just having completed their PhD training are invited to apply as much as more experienced postdoctoral scientists.

We offer: The opportunity to develop an independent aspect within our research group. The University of Münster is one of the biggest Universities in Germany and offers an excellent research environment with state of the art equipment and core facilities. The two successful candidates will be given solid technical support and he/she may be involved in the training of graduate students (if desired).

Our research group is very international and command of the German language is not essential. We invite applications from enthusiastically committed and talented postdoctoral scientists who share our passion for science aiming at pursuing cutting-edge work in an international team.

Duration: The positions are initially limited for two years with possible extension.
