Fully Funded PhD Position

The German Collaborative Research Centre (SFB1425) “Heterocellular Nature of Cardiac Lesions: Identities, Interactions, Implications” is recruiting PhD students to join cutting-edge research that aims to develop insight and tools to improve clinical outcomes after heart lesioning — to make better scars!

More information is available on our SFB1425 website.


Research projects for Dr. med. cand. / M.Sc. cand.

Effects of aging on heterocellular coupling and non-myocyte populations in the heart

The Institute for Experimental Cardiovascular Medicine (IEKM) is looking for a student interested in a 6-12 month project forming the basis of a Dr med or MSc thesis to examine aging effects on heart structure and function, with a special focus on cardiac non-myocytes. The proposed project involves electrophysiological and/or optogenetic studies on isolated perfused hearts to assess whether there is increased electrotonic coupling between myocytes and non-myocytes in hearts from old mice. Functional experiments will be followed by histological examination to quantify cell numbers and intercellular connectivity. Within this project there is the possibility to learn a wide range of techniques, work with cutting edge equipment, and interact with experts in the field.

Supervisors: Dr Franziska Schneider-Warme and Dr Callum Zgierski-Johnston


Research projects for M.Sc. cand. / Dr. med. cand.

Two Master / MD thesis projects on 'Mechano-sensitive channels in cardiac macrophages: Interaction between Piezo1 and BKCa channels'. If you are interested please contact Rémi Peyronnet. [project description]


Research project for B.Sc. cand. / M.Sc. cand.

Effects of the intracardiac nervous system aging on the development of cardiac arrythmia

The Institute for Experimental Cardiovascular Medicine (IEKM) is looking for a student interested in a 6-12 month project forming the basis of  BSc or MSc thesis to examine aging effects on the intracardiac nervous system structure and function, with a special focus on cardiac Schwann cells and endonurial fibroblast. The proposed project involves advanced fluorescent microscopy and electrophysiological studies on isolated perfused hearts to assess whether the abnormalities in the aged intracardiac nervous system is a contributing factor to cardiac arrythmia in general and atrial fibrillation in particular. Within this project there is the possibility to learn a wide range of techniques, work with cutting edge equipment, and interact with experts in the field.

Supervisor: Dr Luis Hortells


We are keen to talk to students from diverse backgrounds (Engineering, Computing, Biology, Medicine), who are interested in pursuing BSc, MSc, MD or PhD research in a dynamic and supportive environment, tackling clinically relevant questions in a highly interdisciplinary setting. 

Are you looking for new challenges and are interested in being part of a team with a flat hierarchy and fast decision-making-channels?
Feel free to contact one of the heads of the respective section directly or establish a first contact via Peter Kohl or the administration office.
