Postdoctoral Researcher (f/m/x)

The main focus of the Division of Nephrology of the Department of Internal Medicine III is the diagnosis and treatment of renal diseases and hypertension. Nephrology is a division with a lot of research possibilities with national and international collaborations and includes a wide variety of basic and patient-based clinical research. Hereby, we aim to offer medical treatments to our patients which is always based on the latest evidence and to develop innovative therapies by our clinical and translational studies. The Clinic for Internal Medicine 3, Division of Nephrology, Hugo Laboratory, focuses on clinically relevant mechanisms of renal regeneration, vessel repair and its modulation by therapy.

Postdoctoral Researcher (f/m/x)

The position is immediately available. The contract will initially be for 24 months with the possibility for extension in a growing research laboratory. Our plan is to establish a postdoctoral research in our group with long-term contracts.

Our group focuses on the mechanisms of renal/glomerular regeneration and hereby identified a renal precursor cell niche of renin lineage cells within the juxtaglomerular apparatus, which is activated and tightly regulated upon intraglomerular injury. Established transgenic mouse systems to trace and modulate this precursor cell niche will be challenged to define the signals being responsible for activation and transdifferentiation of the precursor cells as a defined injury response. Hereby, also the potential interaction of cell death signalling and precursor cell activation is being studied. Please have a look at our homepage for details.

We are an internationally operating team with collaborators from different cultural backgrounds, working profiles and strategies. We are therefore looking for an integrative personality that may foster our research by great communications skills. We are a dynamic, flexible, open-minded and creative team with increasing international visibility. The Hugo laboratory is located in the Medizinisch-Theoretisches Zentrum (MTZ). Close interconnections between our group and excellent basic research institutions, such as the Centre for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD), the Medical Faculty and the Max-Planck Institute for Cell Biology and Genetics have been established and allow internationally competitive projects. Most of our team members prefer to work on flexible working hours. We do care about a healthy work-life balance in a nonetheless ambitious research team. Creating own ideas will be openly discussed in a welcoming manner.

Your Profile:

  • The successful candidate will focus on high quality in vivo work using our established renal mice injury models, cell culture work (western blotting, flow cytometry, immunoprecipitation, cloning, etc) as well as microfluidic systems (in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute Dresden) and renal organoids.
  • Within these studies, intravital imaging of renal precursor cells (renin lineage cells) during murine kidney disease and its characterization will be part of the project.
  • We are looking for highly motivated applicants with a PhD or MD/PhD with interest in cutting edge cell regenerative research.

We offer:

  • Employment in the leading research, academic teaching and health care connected with a highly specialized working Environment
  • Realization of own ideas and employment in an innovative interdisciplinary Team
  • Flexible working hours possible for the realization of the combination of family and Job
  • Childcare by partnerships with nurseries near the University Hospital
  • Use of company prevention offers, courses and fitness in our health centre Carus Vital
  • Company pension plan for the time after the active employment
  • Vocational training and professional development with individual planning of your career
