Post-doctoral position/Scientist (m/f/d)

in Cardiovascular Pharmacology in collaboration with mass spectrometry

Our expertise is in merging interesting biological questions with leading-edge analytical techniques, including mass spectrometry, that help decipher protein identities, quantities and modifications. Our projects range from basic discovery research to clinically relevant analytical studies. We apply our considerable mass spectrometry-based expertise to deciphering the precise role that protein expression profiles and modifications play in disease progression. In brief, we are interested in how distinct alterations to the proteome affect the disease progression of cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure.
