PhD Candidate (m/w/d) in Immune-Lipid crosstalk


About This PhD Project

Project Description

The position is a part-time position (25,03 h/w) and is initially funded until 31st December 2021 with the option of extension. The salary corresponds to level 65% of 13 TV-L. The successful candidate has the opportunity to pursue a doctoral degree.

It has been recently shown that chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients have an increased risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD), although the precise underlying mechanisms remain elusive.

Candidates will perform research to explore the contribution of a novel mechanism of immune-lipid crosstalk, which might explain at least partly the observed increased CVD risk in CKD-patients. Hereby, the focus will be to investigate the interference of high-density lipoproteins (HDL) and other lipids with the chemokine-receptor signaling and its functional consequences.

Candidates will be trained in a wide variety of both in-vitro and in-vivo (mouse) models. The working language of the group is English.

The candidate should hold a Master degree in Biology or Biomedical Sciences.

Interested candidates should send a brief motivation letter, CV and the names of two references (code-no: GB-P-15720 by 30th March 2019) to .
