Job Openings

PhD students/Doktoranden and Postdocs:

We are always looking for enthusiastic and creative PhD students and Postdocs to reveal gene regulatory mechanisms of cardiovascular diseases using cutting-edge single cell epigenomics, multiomics technologies and functional perturbation assays. For our studies we use clinical samples, mouse models, cell culture and stem cell differentiation models.


  • Master degree or PhD degree in any field with strong interest in gene regulation, epigenomics, functional genomics and high dimensional data analysis.

  • Experience with analysis and/or generating epigenomic datasets (ATAC-seq, ChIP-seq, CUT&Tag) and single cell genomics datasets (single cell RNA-seq, single cell ATAC-seq) are preferred, but not required.

  • For wet lab candidates, experience with in vitro differentiation of cardiomyocytes or organoid culture is a plus.

  • Candidates with experience in both wet and dry lab are highly encouraged to apply.

  • Excellent communication and collaborative skills.
