Two PhD (or MD-PhD) Studentships in Cardiac Arrhythmia Research in

Switzerland Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine (IBMM), University of Bern, Switzerland

Research group website:

Join our dynamic research group led by Prof. Hugues Abriel at the University of Bern, Switzerland, as we explore novel molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying lethal cardiac arrhythmias. Our laboratory is based in the picturesque city of Berne, the Federal City of Switzerland, at the heart of Europe. Our work focuses on ion channel mutations in patients and families with genetic arrhythmia syndromes and the regulation of cardiac ion channels. In this project, we will hire two PhD students: one will focus on the biochemistry and structure of cardiac ion channels, while the other one will concentrate on cellular electrophysiology and single-channel recordings.

Ideal Candidate

• Aspiring PhD (or MD-PhD) student • Experience in membrane protein biochemistry, molecular biology, or cellular electrophysiology/biophysics is a plus, but not required

Start Date: July 2023 (the positions remain open until suitable candidates are found)
