This position is within the Marie Sktodowska Curie lnnovative Training Network "pH and lon Transport in Pancreatic Cancer - pHioniC" at the lnstitute of Physiology ll of the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Germany.

The pHioniC group ( is a European research consortium funded within the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions. lt is composed of 12 research units (10 academic and 2 industrial/SME partners) with long-standing, complementary expertises in transport physiology, biophysics, pathology, cell biology, pharmacology, optical imaging, experimental and clinical oncology. The overall aim of the pHioniC project is to comprehensively test the hypotheses that the unique pancreatic pH landscape and proteins involved in ion transport are crucial for driving progression of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). ln addition, pHioniC will develop a European platform for training in the emerging field of ion transport in cancer.

We are seeking a highly motivated and talented early stage researcher (Post graduate) with good communication skills and knowledge of English or German to complement our team. Using a combination of live-cell (ionic) imaging, atomic force micropscopy and biochemical assays we aim to decipher mechanisms by which the pancreatic pH landscape regulates the ability of stromal pancreatic stellate cells to sense and respond to altered mechanical properties of the PDAC stroma.

Further information can be obtained from the pHioniC homepage ( or from Albrecht Schwab (aschwab(at)­uni-muenster(dot)­de).

The position is funded for three years according to the rules of the European Commission. Mobility rules apply so that the successful candidate must not have lived in Germany for more than 12 months during the 3 years preceding the date of recruitment.
