PhD student Physiology
Interested in Physiology, want to become a PhD? Join our strong team!
- Geert Grooteplein Zuid, Nijmegen, Gelderland
- Tijdelijk contract / Tijdelijke opdracht
- Uren per week:
- 36 uur
Our research focuses on the elucidation of the molecular mechanisms underlying hormonal-mediated regulation of solute and water transport processes in epithelia including kidney and small intestine. The major emphasis is currently on the epithelial calcium (TRPV5 & TRPV6), magnesium (TRPM6 & TRPM7) and water (Aquaporin 2) channels, salt transporters (NCC, ENaC) and succinate receptors that constitute instrumental solute transport pathways in epithelia. The current projects aim to investigate in detail the regulation of these transport activities in health and disease. To this end, a wide variety of cutting edge techniques will be applied including cell and molecular biological, genetics biochemical and physiological procedures.
Tasks and responsibilities:
- The PhD student will design and perform scientific research in the area of molecular transport physiology in health and disease
- Generates and analyses the data in order to contribute to scientific publications and presents findings at scientific meetings
- Works in a team with other students and scientists to discuss, plans and performs research in a stimulating environment
- Works in a highly international research group with fellows from many countries
- Completes the project with a scientific dissertation
- MSc (medical) Biology or Chemistry
- Independent and well-structured working style
- Strong motivation to succeed in scientific researches
- Well-developed social skills directed to work in a team
- Experience with molecular biology
- Permitted to work with animals (art. 9) is a pre depending on the project
- Scale 10A: max € 38699 gross per year at full employment
