Doctoral (PhD) position in Molecular Cardiology

Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, University of Lausanne, Switzerland


A PhD position is available at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology of University of Lausanne, Switzerland, for a project focusing on the molecular mechanisms mediating cardiac protection against heart failure. The main research focus of our laboratory is to identify and characterize novel cardiac signaling pathways preventing heart dysfunction and promoting myocardial repair.

Your position:

You will be taking advantage of mouse pathophysiological models, genetically engineered mice, immunohistology, confocal microscopy, cell culture, and state-of-the-art proteomic, genomic, molecular and cellular biology techniques to identify cardioprotective signaling molecules favoring repair of the injured heart.

Your profile:

We are seeking highly motivated students with a good background in molecular biology, biochemistry, and cardiac physiology. Good English writing skills, strong communication and interpersonal skills, and ability to work independently are expected. Expertise in handling bioinformatic tools for the analysis of large-scale gene expression datasets would be an advantage.

Applicants should hold a Master degree in biology, biochemistry, or a related discipline.

We offer you :

A dynamic, stimulating, interdisciplinary research environment, state-of-the-art technologies, cutting-edge core facilities, and attractive employment conditions.



Candidates are encouraged to send a curriculum vitae, a motivation letter, and names and E-mail addresses of three referees to:
