PhD student (f/m/d)
This project is a collaboration of the working groups of Tobias Brügmann and Silvio Rizzoli at the Center for Physiology at the University Medical Center Göttingen within the graduate school RTG 2824 "Heart & Brain diseases: integrative research across organs" funded by the German Research Foundation. We will combine our expertise in superresolution microscopy techniques, protein labelling and human induced-pluripotent stem cells, muscle physiology as well as Ca2+ Imaging.
- developing a new Ca2+ Imaging approach to determine Ca2+ dynamics in specific compartments and microdomains of muscle cells and neurons.
- cell culture, cloning, superresolution microscopy, live cell imaging
- structured training dedicated to heart and brain diseases and research within the RTG2824.
- highly motivated and interested researcher
- team-orientated and cooperative
- completed Master in Life Sciences, Biology, Physics, Chemistry or in a related field
- structured training programs and career development (RTG2824 and on campus: Hertha-Sponer-College)
- competitive and collaborative research environment (MBExC cluster of excellence, ERC Synergy, DFG funding)
- state-of-the-art methods focused on superresolution microscopy, optogenetics and muscle physiology with access to all core facilities and cutting edge techniques at the Göttingen Campus
