The Department of Developmental Genetics (Prof Dr. Didier Stainier), Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research has openings for 2 PhD students interested in working on the vascular control of cardiac regeneration in zebrafish.  

As part of the recently founded Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1366, we are looking for two enthusiastic and motivated PhD students to work on cardiac regeneration in zebrafish with a particular focus on the cardiac endothelium as a source of pro-regenerative cues. The positions are available from January 2019. 

Applicants should have training in vascular biology, molecular biology, cell biology, or related fields.  Suitable candidates should be enthusiastic about regenerative and vascular biology.  Previous research experience with zebrafish, molecular biology, and/or heart regeneration is preferred.

The Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research in Bad Nauheim is an interdisciplinary research institution with international flair.  Our researchers have the opportunity to work on various model systems by making use of the latest cutting-edge technologies.
The Max-Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
