The University Medical Center Göttingen is a tertiary care center and offers great development potential. Its 7,900 employees work in over 65 departments and facilities to provide top-quality patient care, excellent research and modern teaching. Göttingen, "City of Science", located near the center of Germany, the University Medical Center Göttingen is embedded in the city’s attractive network of scientific research facilities.

The Stem Cell Unit focuses on the generation of patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and their applications in genome editing, cardiac differentiation, tissue engineering and disease modelling. By combining iPSC technology with CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and further state-of-the-art approaches, we aim to deeply investigate the pathophysiology of cardiomyocytes on molecular, omics-based as well as on functional and pharmacological level in order to identify novel pathophysiological mechanisms in cardiomyopathy/heart failure and to develop preventive and/or curative therapies. The offered position is in the context of a recently started inter-disciplinary project on the preclinical evaluation of CRISPR/Cas-based gene therapy in the human heart muscle.
