Postdoctoral Research Scientist (m/f) and a Ph.D. Student (m/f)
Reference number 12/2018


in the Department of Pharmacology (Prof. Dr. Stefan Offermanns) to do research in the field of vascular biology / mechanosignalling.

JOB DESCRIPTION
The positions are available to study mechanisms of cellular mechanosensing and mechanosignalling in the vascular system. This includes the analysis of molecular and cellular endothelial processes underlying flow-dependent vascular tone regulation and of disturbed flow-induced vascular inflammation as well as characterization of mechanosignalling processes involved in tumor cell metastasis. For recent references: Wang et al., J. Clin. Invest. 125:3077-3086 (2015); Strilic et al., Nature. 536:215-218 (2016); Wang et al., J. Clin.

We seek enthusiastic, highly motivated people to join our international research group. The projects involve the generation and analysis of complex genetic mouse models, in vitro siRNA- and CRISPR/Cas9-based screens as well as basic cell biological, biochemical, molecular biology and histology techniques. Previous experience in these techniques is appreciated.
