The new position has been created to extend existing basic,pre-clinical and clinical research projects in cardiac electrophysiology with the ultimate goal to establish a translational core research group that interconnects with existing research activities. The Department of Cardiology is the largest institution of its kind in Switzerland with several research groups working in the field of Cardiac Electrophysiology/Rhythmology.

Candidates are expected to have excellent research credentials in cardiac electrophysiology and to work successfully at the interface between basic and clinical research. The establishment of the new translational research unit that interconnects with existing research activities requires a comprehensive understanding of basic, pre-clinical and clinical research in the field of Cardiac Electrophysiology/Rhythmology.

Management and leadership experience paired with a high integration capacity are required and advanced communication skills and a profound interest in constructive collaborations with various research groups are essential. Candidates must have an MD, MD-PhD or PhD with habilitation or equivalent academic credentials. Teaching skills and successful support of junior faculty complete the job profile.
