We (preissllab.org) are looking for enthusiastic and creative Ph.D. students and Postdocs to join our team to dissect the genetic, epigenetic, and gene regulatory mechanisms underlying cardiovascular diseases. We have openings for both computational and wet lab candidates.
Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) including heart failure and atrial fibrillation are major leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The overall goal of our research is to identify and characterize transcriptional and epigenetic factors and processes that could be targeted to prevent disease progression and lead to remission or recovery from cardiovascular diseases. In our research, we utilize cutting-edge single-cell epigenomics/multi-omics technologies and functional perturbation assays. We use a combination of clinical samples, mouse models, and cell culture models.
For more information, please see: preissllab.org
– Master or Ph.D. degree in any field with a strong interest in gene regulation, epigenomics, functional genomics, and high dimensional data analysis.
– Experience with analysis and/or generating epigenomic datasets and single-cell genomics datasets are preferred, but not required.
– For wet lab candidates, experience with in vitro differentiation of cardiomyocytes or organoid culture is a plus.
– For computational candidates, experience with R and/or Python is required.
– Candidates with experience in both wet and dry lab are highly encouraged to apply.
– Excellent communication and collaborative skills.
Interested candidates, please send one pdf with the following documents to sebastian.preissl[at]pharmakol.uni-freiburg.de:
1) Motivation letter including your research interests
3) Contact information for two to three references
