The Charité university hospital has also made a name for itself as a modern business with certifications in the medical, clinical and management fields.

Postdoc (male/female)

CC13 / Med. Kl. m. S. Nephrologie und Internistische Intensivmedizin / Bereich Forschung
Charité Campus Mitte

Work­ing field:

At the BIH Johanna Quandt Professorship "Hypertension and Molecular Biology of Endocrine Tumors", we focus on the genetics and physiology of the kidney and the adrenal gland. As part of the CRC 1453 (Nephrogenetics), we invite applications for the position of a dedicated postdoc in the project "Primary aldosteronism - genetics, pathophysiology and role in hypertensive kidney disease". Primary aldosteronism is the most common cause of secondary hypertension. In rare cases, it is inherited as a Mendelian disorder (familial hyperaldosteronism). In this project, we aim to identify new candidate genes for familial hyperaldosteronism and characterize their function. We also plan to study kidney damage in an established mouse model of familial hyperaldosteronism.

Your area of resposibility::
  • Sanger and exome sequencing of patients with suspected primary aldosteronism
  • Analysis of exome sequencing data together with the Core Unit Bioinformatics and collaborators in Freiburg
  • Pathophysiological investigations: quantitative real-time PCR, RNA sequencing and analysis, hormone measurements (ELISA)
  • Breeding and characterization of mouse models (blood and urine analysis, histology, electron microscopy)
We offer excellent mentoring and interaction with a motivated team in Berlin and the entire Collaborative Research Center.

According to your employment contract, scientific staff members will be given sufficient time for their own scientific work.


  • Completed university studies and doctorate with an experimental research project in the field of natural sciences
  • Willingness to work with laboratory animals
  • Knowledge / prior experience in genetics, bioinformatics, tissue culture, mouse models as well as in hypertension and kidney research are of advantage
  • Excellent computing knowledge, speaking and writing skills in English
  • Enthusiasm for science (working independently and within a team), willingness to learn and to perform
  • Resilience, high motivation and diligence, responsibility, good organizational skills
