Priv.-Doz. Dr. Nathanael Raschzok and his team are working on strategies for (re-) conditioning of marginal liver grafts by ex vivo liver machine perfusion. The aim for the proposed job offer, which is funded by grants of the Else Kröner-Fresenius-Stiftung, is to make steatotic liver grafts, which are usually discarded from transplantation due to the high risk for the recipient, acceptable for transplantation. We have already established a small animal model of ex vivo liver machine perfusion as well as transplantation. Aim of this project is to test a clinically approved drug in dose-response studies (based on preliminary data), followed by in vivo studies in the rat liver transplantation model.

Your responsibility will be:
  • Organ perfusion of murine livers in our established small animal modell for ex vivo liver machine perfusion
  • Support of in rat liver transplantation experiments
  • Organ recovery and transplantation (not mandatory)
  • Biochemical analysis of the perfusat and the lipid metabolism (ELISA), tissue analysis (qRT-PCR, Wester Blot, immunochemistry, immunofluorescence)
  • We fully support the application and submission of a doctoral thesis (e.g. Dr. rer.medic or MD/PhD)
  • Degree in biology, biochemistry, biotechnology or medicine
  • Pevious experience in molecular cell biology and/or proteinbiochemistry, or surgical research
  • Proficiency in standard methods, especially histology, immunhistochemistry, qPCR, FACS, microscopy, cell culture/cell isolation
  • Excellent english language skills
Personal characteristics
  • innovative spirit and extraordinary motivation, interest in purposeful work
  • team work orientated
  • organized, ability for analytic and independent work ethic
