PhD student positions in the doc.funds PhD program "CavX - Calcium channels in excitable cells"
- Medical University of Innsbruck and University of Innsbruck
Students with a keen interest in neuroscience are invited to apply for one of 6 vacant doctoral studentships within the newly established PhD program CaVX – Calcium channels in excitable cells.
In the PhD program, which is run by the Innsbruck’s Universities and financed by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), we are studying the roles of voltage-gated calcium channels (CaV) in health and disease. Students accepted into the program will be enrolled in the existing graduate program in Neuroscience and receive a specialized training in signaling processes of ion channels, membrane excitability, calcium signaling, and channelopathies.
Research topics: Roles of voltage-gated calcium channels in CNS neurons, skeletal muscle and pancreas, distinct brain disorders, retinal dysfunction, and diabetes.
Candidates must hold a master's degree or equivalent in the life sciences, medicine, pharmacy or physics. Excellent command of English is indispensable.
Applications must be received by May 28th 2018! The top candidates will be interviewed in Innsbruck in the beginning of July 2018. Research will start in October 2018.
