Open PhD Position in Neurovascular Biology
We are looking for a PhD student with interest in the field of Vascular Biology and Immunology. Candidates are interested in working in an interdisciplinary, translational team of biologists and clinician-scientists.
Our lab’s research interest focuses on understanding how different cells within the neurovascular niche communicate with each other during cerebral angiogenesis, blood-brain- barrier damage and repair, balancing vascular plasticity and quiescence, and angiocrine activation of the immune system. The Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin offers a unique research landscape with many prestigious research institutions such as the BIH, MDC, DRFZ, and Neurocure cluster.
The PhD candidate should have a Master’s degree in the field of the life sciences and a special interest in vascular biology and/or immunology. To this end, the PhD will learn and apply advanced imaging and molecular biology, studying the interactions of vascular and immune interface in rare causes of stroke such as subarachnoid hemorrhage and Moyamoya disease.
The PhD candidate will be funded for 3 years by the German Research Foundation (DFG), and support to extramural funds will be provided. The PhD student will be co-mentored by a biologist and physician-scientist, overseen by Prof. Peter Vajkoczy.
Pease send your application including CV and references no later than September 11 to Dr. Ran Xu (email@example.com) and Dr. Anja Nitzsche (firstname.lastname@example.org).
