We have opened competition for two PhD student positions:
- Linking energetics to muscle phenotype: the importance of intracellular microdomains on the regulation of AMP-activated kinase . The aim of this project is to study in detail how energetics affects the signaling pathways in skeletal and heart muscle tissue. You will learn how to combine experimental and theoretical approaches to extract as much information as possible from your data.
- Deep dive into the cardiac cell: tracking molecular movement to unravel intracellular diffusion barriers. This is a project combining physics and biology to study the intracellular environment in the heart muscle. Through development of cutting edge experimental and data analysis approaches, it is expected to reveal intracellular environment properties that govern molecular movements and have a major impact on shaping cardiac physiology.
The official competition pages are linked above with the descriptions of the projects. Apply if you are interested in a work in an interdisciplinary lab and want to contribute to the understanding of cardiac and muscle physiology.
Update, Sept 2021: Position for a work on AMP-activated kinase has been filled. The diffusion project is still looking for a candidate through the renewed call.
