PhD position in Life sciences

The Institute of Physiology I, University of Bonn Medical School, Germany invites candidates for a DFG-funded
PhD position (TV-L EG13, 65%)
The position starts as soon as possible and is funded for a period of 3 years.
The DFG-project entitled „Role of the Endocannabinoid Systems in airway tone regulation under physiological and pathophysiological conditions“ focuses on effects of endocannabinoids and their metabolites on airway regulation.
Our laboratory employs a wide array of experimental techniques including cell biology, molecular biology, protein biochemistry (cell culture work, lentiviral transduction, magnetic nanoparticles, qRT-PCR, Westen Blot analysis) and physiology (Ca2+ imaging, isometric force measurements, mouse spirometry, whole body plethysmography, pressure catheter measurements). Results are transferred to experimental mouse models of asthma and COPD.

The ideal candidate will be a highly motivated graduate with an university degree in (Veterinary)medicine, Biology, Biomedicine, Biochemistry or a related subject. She/he has a strong interest in application-oriented basic research and is willing to work with mice. Experience with cell biology, physiology and/or animal experimentation techniques is desired. Good English skills are expected.
The Institute of Physiology I is located in the Life & Brain Center of the University of Bonn with state-of-the-art equipment. We provide an excellent training and research infrastructure, supportive mentoring and a highly interactive and stimulating environment.
We offer salary according to the German salary scale TVL EG13, Jobticket and supplementary benefits in the public sector (pension plan according to VBL).
The University of Bonn is an equal opportunity employer.
Please submit your application (including CV, copies of your education certificates, a motivation letter, a brief summary of previous research experience, contact information of 2 referees) within the next 3 weeks via email in a single pdf file to:
