Postdoctoral Position in Vascular Biology (m/f/d) in full time – (start: immediately)

The project will be carried out in the laboratory of Martin Dichgans ( and is embedded in a Leducq-funded International Network of Excellence (start 1/2023). The project centers on mechanisms linking mutations in risk genes for stroke and cerebrovascular disease (Nature 2022; Nat Genet 2022) to vascular pathology. Expanding on our analyses in other risk genes (e.g. Circ Res. 2020; Circulation 2019; Circulation 2021), a new mouse line with informative phenotype, and novel experimental paradigms we aim to develop cell-type specific therapeutic approaches. We are searching for an experienced postdoctoral researcher with background in vascular biology. Functioning in a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary team, the postdoctoral researcher will investigate the mechanism driving cerebral small vessel disease in a novel genetic mouse model with human relevance. You will use a broad range of methods with ample expert support on cutting edge technologies including scRNAseq and spatial transcriptomics, mass-spectrometry-based proteomics, clearing and light-sheet microscopy ( and

Our requirements
