Full Time
Organization Type

The department of Clinical Genetics at MUMC+ in Maastricht provides genetics diagnosis and tertiary clinical care for a population of 2 million in the south of the Netherlands.

In the field of cardiogenetics, cardiomyocytes obtained from patient-derived induced pluripotent stem-cells (iPSC) have become a useful model system for both functional assessment of a VUS and exploring therapeutic options (personalized medicine).

The department has a vacancy for an enthusiastic and ambitious postdoc who can make a major contribution to further develop iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes as routine model for functional cardiogenetics (further details of this project are available upon request). We are looking for an excellent, highly competitive researcher at the post-doctoral level.

Job offer

Funding is available for a 3-year research position according to the terms of employment of Maastricht University. Following a positive evaluation, extension into a tenure track position may be possible.
