PhD student in Molecular Endocrinology 676 views

The Division of Molecular and Systems Toxicology, Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at University of Basel is offering a PhD student position to investigate xenobiotics potentially causing mineralocorticoid excess and hypertension.

About the position:
  • The proposed project will extend ongoing work on the cortisol-inactivating enzyme 11β-HSD2. An existing enzyme activity assay needs to be improved to allow higher throughput in analysing potential inhibitors.
  • The project aims to establish in our group bioassays for three enzymes involved in corticosteroid synthesis (CYP11B1, CYP11B2, CYP17A1), in order to cover the most important targets for mineralocorticoid excess.
  • The successful candidate should have basic experience in working with cell culture and in biochemistry/molecular biology methods.
  • The successful candidate will be integrated in an international research group.

Requirements:

  • Applicant must hold Master’s degree in the field of Life Sciences
  • Basic experience in biochemistry/molecular biology methods
  • Basic experience in cell culture
  • Fluent communication in English, written and oral, ideally good knowledge in German
  • Highly motivated, interactive team player

Applications:

Apply online and application should include CV, a short motivation letter, copies of degrees and qualifications and the names/contact data of at least two referees.
