We are seeking two highly motivated post-doctoral fellows interested in cardiovascular biology. In our research projects we examine the fundamentals of Ca2+ signaling and excitation-contraction coupling of the heart on the cellular and molecular level, in various mouse of cardiac diseases. State-of-the art methods are applied including confocal Ca2+ imaging with and the patch-clamp technique. This position provides excellent training opportunities in a highly interactive and networked environment. We also offer the possibility to learn the recently developed technique of UV-laser and two-photon excitation photolysis of novel caged compounds. For further details see our web-site. This junior post-doc position (<3 years after PhD) is available starting June 1st 2018 and is funded for 2 years by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
