PhD (MD) – Student Position in Molecular Cardiology and Electrophysiology in Switzerland

Description - The main focus of our group is to elucidate novel molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying cardiac arrhythmias causing sudden death. To this end, we investigate ion channel mutations found in patients and families presenting with genetic types of tlethal arrhythmias such as the congenital long QT and Brugada syndromes. In addition, we study new types of regulation of cardiac ion channels relevant to the arrhythmogenic mechanisms.

Our research group is located at the Department of Clinical Research of the University of Bern (Switzerland). We are located in the wonderful city of Bern, capital og Switzerland, right in the middle of Europe.
