Medical Faculty of Masaryk University, Department of Biology, Brno, Czech Republic invites excellent scientists to apply for

Postdoc position in Stem Cell Disease Modeling



The focus of the team aims at the use of human pluripotent stem cells to model human diseases, which lead to cardiomyopathy and heart failure. A special focus is put upon progressive cardiomyopathies caused by cardiac progenitor depleti­on and heart remodeling due to cardiac progenitor genome instability. The SCDM uses reprogrammed human patient cells, as well as human embryonic stem cells with edited genome, to create models of monogenic diseases involving cardiomyopathy. The team also complements stem cell-based modeling with the analysis of both animal models and human samples. The SCDM team has also developed novel technology to analyze mechanoelectrical coupling in cardiac syncytia developed from patients derived stem cells, specifically cardiac syncytium based biosensor on atomic force microscope.

The successful candidate should:

  • be a researcher who has received a PhD or its equivalent within the last 7 years;
  • be a researcher who has worked at least 2 whole years in the last 3 years outside the territory of the Czech Republic in the field of research with a working time of at least 0.5 full-time equivalent, or who has been PhD student (or equivalent) abroad;
  • have a publishing record – in the last 3 years at least 3 publication outputs (“articles”) above the field median (at least 2 of them in Q1) registered in the Thomson Reuters Web of Science.

The applicant shall submit:

  • a CV including a list of publication activity;
  • a motivation letter, including short description of research focus and topic which the candidate will work on, justification of the need considering the field;
  • contact information of at least two references (name, position, telephone number);
  • a diploma (recognition for diplomas from foreign institutions);
  • documents proving the candidate has worked at least 2 whole years in the last 3 years outside the Czech Republic and/or PhD diploma from a foreign institution.

MU offers the opportunity to get:

  • an interesting job in a dynamically-expanding university area;
  • diverse and challenging work in an excellent research environment;
  • initial appointment for 2 years;
