  • PhD student position in Translational Medicine (f/m/d)

    We are currently seeking a highly motivated PhD student. The position is available in the research group of Klaus Kratochwill, the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Molecular Stress Research in Peritoneal Dialysis (CDL-MSRPD), at the Department of Pediatrics of the Medical University of Vienna (https:// cdl-msrpd.meduniwien.ac.at/).

    The Project

    The CDL aims to provide improved therapeutic and diagnostic options for patients requiring renal replacement therapy. This project aims to analyse the impact of alanyl-glutamine, a successfully tested cytoprotective additive to PD fluids, on post-translational modification (PTM) of proteins and effects on peritoneal immune competence (e.g. macrophage function). The project will include in vitro and in vivo experiments and the application of a wide range of laboratory methods (ranging from cell culture to omics methods). The candidate will also have the chance to obtain samples from PD patients from a biobank for clinical validation of the obtained mechanistic insight.

    The Candidate

    We search for a highly motivated candidate, holding a degree in the fields of biochemistry, molecular biology, biotechnology, medicine, biostatistics or bioinformatics, who is willing to learn new technologies and techniques (omics, NGS, LC-MS) connecting mechanistic in vitro investigations with in vivo validation. The position requires solid analytical thinking, scientific writing skills, excellent command of English (basic German is an advantage). The ideal candidate is very talented for wet lab techniques and shows interest for data science (biostatistics and bioinformatics).

    Submit your application, including cover letter, CV, cerfiticates and contact details of two referees, to:

    cdl-msrpd@meduniwien.ac.atApplication Deadline: December 15th, 2021. The position will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate is recruited.
