Postdoctoral research fellow (f/m/x)

The Clinic for Internal Medicine 3, Division of Nephrology, Linkermann Laboratory, focuses on clinically relevant cell death mechanisms and therapy with a focus on nephrological diseases and solid organ transplantation.
In state-of-the-art life science research, we focus on the therapeutic potential of inhibition of regulated necrosis, such as necroptosis, pyroptosis and ferroptosis, and the molecular and biochemical nature of these pathways. We are investigating clinically relevant necrosis to interfere with diseases such as acute kidney injury (AKI), heart attacks and strokes, and to improve the acceptance of transplanted organs. 

To support our efforts on molecular biology, we are currently looking for an experienced and exceptionally motivated 

Postdoctoral research fellow (f/m/x)
