Three Graduate Student Positions (PhD) at The Department of Pharmacognosy, University of Vienna, Austria

We are looking for highly motivated and enthusiastic young scientists to join our research team. Aim of our group is to identify bioactive natural products and to characterize their molecular mode of action, mainly in the context of vascular biology, inflammation and metabolic disorders. Topics currently available deal with a) natural products and their impact on growth factor-activated cell signalling, cell cycle regulation, and the proteasomal system; b) PPARs and cardiovascular disease; c) aging and immunology

The successful candidate holds a relevant degree in Molecular/Cellular Biology Biochemistry, Pharmacy or a similar field. Interest or previous experience in standard cell- and molecular biological work is desired.

Very good English and German communication skills are expected since we are an international group and the candidates are encouraged or obliged to contribute to the teaching activities at the pharmacy centre (depending on the position filled). We expect high motivation and commitment, very good analytical skills and quick perception.

We offer very well equipped laboratories with an up-to date scientific environment, a range of interesting projects and an excellent working and social atmosphere within the group.
