PhD student in kidney development and renoprotection

Job Code



Electrochemical Signaling in Development and Disease

Prostaglandin reductase-2 (PTGR2) initiates the terminal inactivation of Prostaglandin (PGE2) signaling. We identified PTGR2 as a candidate for albuminuria development with a potential renoprotective role. In a translational project by combining complementary in vitro studies, in vivo experiments in zebrafish and rat models, and by explorative analysis of biopsies from selected patients, we will test the renoprotective role of PTGR2 within SFB 1365 Renoprotection.


We are looking for highly motivated students who have a strong interest in physiology, genetics, and developmental biology. Previous experience in any of these areas is an advantage, but it is not required. PhD student will be integrated within the SFB 1365 for Renoprotection and international Graduate School at the MDC.

The MDC is an equal opportunity employer and promotes gender equality.
