PhD student (f/m) Department of Translational Science
Deutsches Zentrum für Herzinsuffizienz Würzburg / The Comprehensive Heart Failure Center Würzburg (CHFC)
The Comprehensive Heart Failure Center Würzburg (CHFC) is an
Integrated Research and Treatment Center supported by the
German Ministry of Education and Research. More than 120
scientists conduct interdisciplinary basic, translational, and clinical
research and provide innovative patient care in the field of
prevention of heart failure and its medical complications. The
CHFC's vision is to improve the awareness of heart failure as an
urgent health challenge in society, to connect existing excellent
basic science and clinical research and to implement preventive
strategies for diagnostics and management as well as new
therapies. In 2017, the CHFC moved into a modern research
building comprising four departments, i.e. imaging, translational
research, genetics, and clinical research.
The Department of Translational Science (Chair: Professor
Christoph Maack) at the CHFC investigates the pathophysiology of
heart failure, with a special focus on mitochondria, metabolism,
excitation-contraction coupling and/or their (epi-)genetic regulation.
This Department seeks to appoint
a PhD student.
The Department of Translational Science closely interacts with the
Department of Genetics (Chair: Professor Brenda Gerull; focus:
mechanisms of inherited cardiomyopathies), the Medical Clinic I
(Chair: Professor Stefan Frantz; focus: the role of inflammation for
cardiac remodeling), and the Core Facility Imaging (CFI; chair:
Professor Laura Schreiber), which harbors a broad array of
advanced imaging modalities. Furthermore, the candidates will
benefit from the attractive interdisciplinary environment at the
CHFC and its close cooperation with the departments of cardiology,
cardiac surgery, nephrology, neurology, psychiatry, psychology,
radiology, and nuclear medicine as well as from brand new research
facilities. For further information on the scientific activities at the
CHFC, please see our website at www.dzhi.de.
We are seeking an excellent young scientist trained in medicine or natural sciences who is experienced in laboratory work,
