In the planned project, we aim to investigate and uncover the role of endothelial derived long non-coding RNAs and their impact on myocardial remodelling in response to cardiac overload. 

The successful candidate will work in the group of Prof. Joerg Heineke at the Medical Faculty Mannheim, University of Heidelberg, which provides excellent research facilities, as well as a friendly and dynamic working environment. She/he will be part of the CRC1366 and its graduate school “School of Angioscience”.
