We are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic researcher for a one year position, to commence Jan. 1st, 2020.
Our main research interest is molecular and genetic mechanisms of cardiac development and congenital heart disease. We are using a multidisciplinary approach, where we combine genetic and genomic investigations of patients, with functional investigations based on embryonic tissues, cell models and zebrafish. Our ambition is to perform research on the highest level and publish in high-quality international journals. We have a very inclusive working environment and a large network of national and international collaborators. More information about our research can be found at:

Your project will focus on functional characterization of candidate disease genes identified in patients with congenital heart defects. Preferably, the functional characterization of cardiac developmental genes should be performed using zebrafish and cell models. Consequently, the project will include standard methods for gene targeting in zebrafish (i.e. morpholino and CRISPR-cas9 based gene targeting) and phenotypic characterization of heart defects. Thus, documented expertise in zebrafish developmental biology will be an advantage.
