We are pleased to announce a new Junior Research Group Leader position in the field of myocardial infarction with a focus on the early healing phase and interrelationships with comorbidities. The research focus should complement key research topics of the CRC1116 such as inflammation, metabolism and systems communication. The group will be associated with the Collaborative Research Centre 1116 (CRC 1116). The CRC 1116 aims to support the early career development of highly qualified researchers. The position will enable them to further develop their scientific careers as a leader of an independent junior research group. The funding for the junior research group will be provided by the Medical Faculty of the Heinrich Heine University for four years and is endowed with an additional PhD position plus consumables. The long term goal of this position is the successful development of a new principal investigator with a well-established project for the next CRC 1116 funding proposal in 2023.

The Collaborative Research Centre 1116 (CRC1116) “Master switches in cardiac ischemia” located at the Heinrich Heine University, Düsseldorf, Germany is seeking highly motivated
PhD students (f/m/d)
The integrated Research Training Group (iRTG) of the CRC 1116 provides a structured training program for PhD students alongside the experimental work in the laboratory. The research of CRC 1116 focuses on molecular mechanisms that influence cardiac remodeling in the acute and subacute phase after AMI and gives room to address state of the art cardiovascular biology in the accompanying course work including structural, functional, metabolic and immunological processes. Moreover, local and systemic interferences affect the ischemia activated adaptive and maladaptive mechanisms, which will be addressed in seminars and lectures, and will provide our PhD students with an integrative view on cardiovascular function and dysfunction as well as the translational aspects. The modular curriculum of the iRTG aims to address all of these topics and will engage PhD students in disease-oriented, cardiovascular research. The science related training program will be complemented by transferable skills workshops offered in collaboration with iGRAD and medRSD, graduate schools of the natural science and medical faculties.
The individual research projects seeking PhD students are:
Creative and stimulating working conditions are offered in a dynamic and international research environment with access to a broad spectrum of high-end technology in molecular biology, proteomic research, cell biology, transgenic animals, isolated organs and organ culture. Please visit our website http://www.sfb1116.hhu.de/ for detailed project descriptions.
We are seeking to recruit highly qualified, energetic and dynamic graduate students holding a M.Sc. degree. We need open-minded candidates with a strong biology background and experiences in general molecular biology. Excellent written and oral communication skills in English are mandatory.
Terms of salary and employment:
