Ph.D fellowship in medical molecular pharmacology / Receptor de- and re-sensitization at University of Southern Denmark

A 3-year fellowship to complete Ph.D studies in medical molecular pharmacology is available at the Department of Cardiovascular and Renal Research, Institute of Molecular Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences.

The section of medical molecular pharmacology (head: Prof. Dr. Jo G. R. De Mey) is a recent addition to the Department of Cardiovascular and Renal Research.

It focusses on basic scientific research aimed at the translation of modern developments in molecular pharmacology into better pharmacotherapy of patients suffering from cardiovascular or renal diseases.

This particular PhD project addresses molecular mechanisms that control the sensitivity of 7-transmembrane domain receptors for vasoactive peptides with respect to the fast and slow biological processes which they modulate (e.g. ionic currents and contraction on the one hand, and MAPK activation, cellular proliferation and apoptosis on the other hand).

To this end it will use among others, cell culture of vascular smooth muscle and endothelial cells, arterial organ culture, organ bath techniques, patch-clamp experiments, and FACS analyses.

Applicants must hold a degree of candidate in medicine (M.D.) or equivalent master’s degree (M.Sc.) in biomedical sciences, pharmacy or biology.
The successful applicant will be enrolled in the Graduate School of Kidney, Heart and Blood Pressure at the University of Southern Denmark.
