We are looking for a graduate student willing to pursue PhD studies in the fields of human Cardiovascular-Integrative-Exercise Physiology. The overall aim of the research project is to elucidate the integrative and molecular determinants of cardiac function and aerobic exercise capacities, along with influence of ethnicity (Western vs. Asian). High-impact publications in world-leading scientific journals are expected from this project. Highly motivated students willing to learn and excel in their PhD are welcome to apply from diverse backgrounds (e.g., Medicine, Exercise Sciences, Biomedicine, Nursing, etc.). A certification to take blood samples is desired.
Embracing integrative approaches, our laboratory focuses on the interplay of cardiovascular, hematological and metabolic systems during physiologically relevant conditions. Exercise is implemented as means to magnify and thereby facilitate the understanding of key intertwined mechanisms of the human body in health and disease. We welcome challenging questions, specifically those with the potential to arise the necessary intrinsic motivation to be enthusiastically immersed in them. "We dive into complexity to emerge with simplicity". Our work is regularly published in highly ranked journals within basic, translational and clinical fields.
- GPA ≥ 3.4/4
- High motivation to excel in research.
