Beschreibung: We are looking for highly motivated PhD students to work on the transcriptional and epigenetic events elicited by cell-to-cell communications during cardiovascular development and disease.
Dynamic interactions between endothelial cells, cardiomyocytes and fibroblasts are crucial for heart morphogenesis, postnatal cardiac growth, contractile performance and rhythmicity. At a molecular level, these dynamic cell interactions induce signalling cascades, which converge to induce transcriptional and epigenetic programming that directs cell behaviour and regulates heart function. Our aim is to decipher the transcriptional and epigenetic events regulating the heterocellular crosstalk in the cardiovascular system.

The successful candidates will work in the group of Prof. Dr. Gergana Dobreva at the the Medical Faculty Mannheim, University of Heidelberg, which provide excellent research facilities, as well as a friendly and dynamic working environment.
To apply, please send an application letter, CV and contact information of at least one referee to Prof. Dr. Gergana Dobreva (Gergana.Dobreva@medma.uni-heidelberg.de).
Methoden: We use a wide range of biochemical, molecular/cell biological, embryological and transgenic techniques to study cardiovascular development and disease both in vitro (cell culture) and in vivo in mouse and zebrafish.
