Your Career Within the CRC 1525

For our Collaborative Research Center 1525, which started in January 2022, we are continuously looking for scientists committed to our research field. Our interdisciplinary team looks forward to applicants with strong interest in cardiology, immunobiology, bioinformatics or imaging. 

Cutting-edge research 

Würzburg has a long scientific tradition in cardiovascular research and plays a leading role in cardio-immunological research. Our scientists have proven expertise in the fields of immunobiology, cardiovascular disease models, single-cell techniques, bioinformatics and imaging. The University of Würzburg is internationally renowned for its research in life sciences and, with its scientific publications, is one of the top contributors to the journal Nature. 

Our aims

Within the 19 projects that comprise CRC 1525, we are studying the interaction between immunity and myocardial disease at cellular and molecular levels. Moreover, we are developing imaging methods and diagnostics for monitoring inflammation in heart diseases. To this end, experts in cardiology, immunobiology and imaging work closely together. The long-term goal of the CRC is to identify patients whose inflammatory profile enables them to benefit most from new immunomodulatory therapies. 

Our strengths 

To all CRC scientists we offer state-of-the-art infrastructure and cutting-edge technology, such as single cell analysis or 7T MRI for disease models in mice or large animals and for human use in dedicated core facilities. In order to promote exchange and knowledge transfer, we regularly organize internal and external specialist events. Young scientists are particularly important to us: With doctoral positions, postdocs or clinician-scientist programs as well as many other funding opportunities, we will prepare talented young scientists for careers in academia or industry. 

Gender equality and family friendliness 

We pay great attention to gender equality and a family-friendly atmosphere. Hence, we provide childcare options and meet your individual needs with flexible working hours and part-time models. Equal opportunities for all gender identities is a matter of course for us!
