Opportunities to Join

The Kühn Lab is always looking for talented, curious, and driven researchers to join our team.

Postdoctoral Associates

We are searching for applicants with excellent academic performance and first-author publications. We promote high research standards, foster teamwork, and provide supportive mentors hip. We encourage and support our post-docs to secure fellowship grants. Most projects are multi-disciplinary and involve experts from diverse fields of research. Specific research approaches include: transcriptional profiling of single cardiomyocytes from animals and humans; myocardial regeneration in neonatal mice; microscopy of cardiomyocytes in culture and in the intact heart for measurements of structure and function; directing terminal differentiation of ES- and iPS-cell derived cardiomyocytes.

Graduate Students

We welcome graduate students for rotations and to do their research thesis. We are looking for applicants with previous wet-lab experience. Although we do not offer thesis projects that are purely theoretical, students with interest and background in bioinformatics, computational biology, or mathematics are encouraged to apply.

Undergraduate Students

We welcome undergraduate students from all departments and encourage first- and second-year students who are interested in a thesis project to contact us. Undergraduate students will be encouraged to stay with our lab until their graduation in order to accomplish a research project. The expected time commitment during the academic year is 10-15 hours per week, ideally in blocks of more than 3-5 hours at a time.
