Doctoral position in Biomedicine (m/f/d, E13 TV-L, 65%)

Faculty of Science, DFG Research Training Group (GRK 2381)

Bewerbungsfrist : 15.07.2020

The University of Tübingen, Faculty of Science, DFG Research Training Group (GRK 2381), has an open call for fully funded

PhD positions in Biomedicine 

starting January 11, 2021.

The initial fixed-term contract will be for 3 years.

We are looking for highly motivated graduates holding a Master's degree to join our DFG Research Training Group cGMP: From Bedside to Bench (GRK 2381) aiming to gain critical new insights into the second messenger cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP)’s role in cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and neurological disorders. cGMP is responsible for the transmission of signals in cells, and many drugs for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases target this signaling pathway. The latest findings suggest that cGMP-modulating drugs can be used even more widely. An important element of the GRK is its strong international dimension. Each student will be co-mentored by a principal investigator in Boston who works on a related topic and she/he will visit the partner laboratory for a period of three months. Using state-of-the-art techniques and transgenic mouse models (developed by members of the GRK) fellows will gain critical new insights into cGMP’s role in cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and neurological disorders. 

The application deadline is July 15, 2020.
