Anderseen Lab is looking for a highly motivated Ph.D. student in bioinformatics and/or a wet-lab biologist with computational background.
The successful candidate will be part of the Andergassen lab based at the Institute of Pharmacology and Toxicology of the Technical University of Munich (TUM). The lab bridges computational and experimental strategies (high-throughput sequencing, epigenetics, CRISPR in vivo editing) to understand the functional contributions of the non-coding genome, such as regulatory DNA elements and long non-coding RNAs in the cardiovascular system. We aim to understand the impact of epigenetic changes on heart function and elucidate the molecular basis for sex differences in cardiovascular diseases. To address these fundamental questions, the lab combines allele-specific genomics with disease and genetic mouse models with the overall aim to elucidate relevant therapeutic candidates to form the basis of new therapies to treat cardiovascular diseases.
